Indian outsourcing company Infosys Technologies is scouting locations for a second outsourcing facility in China after moving into its Shanghai office in February.
The company is building up its operations in China to tap into demand for IT outsourcing from Japanese and South Korean companies as well as from multinational companies that are doing business in China.
In the future, the company also hopes to be well positioned to provide outsourcing services to Chinese companies.
"You may lose out to your competition if you don't have a China presence," KS Suryaprakash, head of delivery operations at Infosys Technologies (Shanghai), said.
Infosys is currently considering six Chinese cities as possible locations for a second development facility and will make a decision in the coming months on where a second development facility will be located, Suryprakash said.
