Unisys has opened a new outsourcing and software development centre in Shanghai, as part of a move to hire an extra 1,000 staff in China over the next three years.
The Shanghai centre will provide software development, IT and business process outsourcing services, technical help desk services, and technology support and maintenance services.
Cal Killen, Unisys global sourcing vice president, said, "Now more than ever, Unisys clients require global sourcing options to further their business strategies, manage costs and optimise their return on IT and services investments."
In addition to providing global sourcing support, the multi-purpose Shanghai facility will serve as the company’s Open Source centre of excellence, where Unisys will develop and deploy an open source software environment.
Unisys’ existing China operations already include offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.
