XCHANGING EXPANDS PRESENCE IN SOUTH EAST ASIA
Opens new centre in Singapore, to serve as Xchanging South East Asia
SINGAPORE, 27 July 2010 - As part of its global expansion, Xchanging plc (LSE:
XCH), one of the largest and fastest growing global business processors, has
relocated its Singapore operations to a new flagship centre. This centre will be
headed by William Woo, who was recently appointed as Managing Director for
Xchanging, South East Asia.
Located at 13 International Business Park, Jurong East, the centre follows
global best practice in design and technology to create a state-of-the-art
environment. It follows a repeatable format seen in all Xchanging offices across
the world. The design supports lean processing, collaboration and transparency
with customers. This centre also advances Xchanging's corporate social
responsibility goals as an economical and environmentally responsible workplace.
David Andrews CEO Xchanging said, "Establishing our South East Asia headquarters
marks a significant milestone for Xchanging as it forwards our ambition to be
the global business processor of choice for our customers. Singapore is
undoubtedly emerging as a global financial services hub; the region as such is
taking a leadership position in the utilisation of new generation technologies
such as Cloud Computing. This makes it a logical step in our growth strategy.
Our existing customer relationships such as with the Government of Singapore and
DHL give us a good head start in the region".
Xchanging's Asia Pacific business includes Australia, Singapore, Malaysia,
India, China and Japan. Kerry Purcell, Head of Asia Pacific for Xchanging added,
"To address opportunities in the diverse economies of this region, we have
organised ourselves as three sub-regions in Asia Pacific - Australia, India and
surrounding South Asian countries and South East Asia. As a central business
hub, Singapore was the perfect location for us to set up our South East Asia
headquarters. There is a growing demand for technology and BPO services in the
region. Our centre in Singapore brings us closer to our customers in the region
to offer Xchanging's expertise and services to companies across industries in
South East Asia".
