MphasiS establishes Near Shore Development and Delivery Centre at the University of Wollongong

By MphasiS

MphasiS will tomorrow open its first 'near shore' integrated development and delivery Centre in Australia at the University of Wollongong. The strategic location of the Centre will enable MphasiS to work closely with the University of Wollongong on a range of initiatives including training, recruitment, and research and development in the ICT space.

Headquartered in India, MphasiS is an HP company which employs over 38,000 people and provides applications services, remote management services, and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) services to customers around the world.

The MphasiS Near Shore Centre, referring to its regional location and proximity to customers in Australian capital cities and in New Zealand, will provide local employment opportunities with plans to create at least 265 jobs over five years. The Centre will focus exclusively on customers in Australia and New Zealand and will offer a specialised resource pool for the telecommunications industry as well as a Centre of Excellence for testing. MphasiS plans to offer specialised automated testing services from the test lab being set up in Wollongong.

Initially located on the main campus of the University of Wollongong, in 2011 the MphasiS Near Shore Centre will relocate to the University's research and commercial precinct, Innovation Campus (iC). MphasiS has secured 1288sqm of A Grade commercial space in the iC Enterprise 1 building, due for completion in mid-2011. The Innovation Campus will help facilitate a healthy work-life balance for MphasiS employees given its close proximity to public transport, the University of Wollongong, the Wollongong CBD and beachfront, as well as on-site facilities including a health club and cafe. MphasiS will join BHP Billiton Illawarra Coal as tenants of iC Enterprise 1.

Both MphasiS and the University of Wollongong wish to acknowledge the strong and positive support received from the NSW Government in ensuring the establishment of the Centre in Wollongong.

'Australia and New Zealand are very important markets for us,' said Sudhir Mathur, MphasiS Regional Director, ANZ. 'The MphasiS Near Shore Development and Delivery Centre is a key investment that we are making to cater specifically to clients in this region. Furthermore, our partnership with University of Wollongong will work towards the development of local talent and create exciting employment opportunities in the region. At MphasiS, we service Australian clients ranging from the world's number one retail bank to the leading communications service provider. This is yet another milestone in strengthening our collaboration and service-oriented approach,' Mr Mathur added.

'The University of Wollongong is delighted MphasiS has selected the Innovation Campus to house its Near Shore Development and Delivery Centre. This Centre will put the Innovation Campus on the map as a global ICT hub and will create long-term benefits for both the University of Wollongong and the Illawarra region,' said Professor Gerard Sutton, the University of Wollongong's Vice-Chancellor.

'The agreement with MphasiS represents a significant win for the Australian ICT sector. It supports the NSW Government's Knowledge Services Strategy for the Illawarra region and will establish Wollongong as an ideal near shoring location. I would like to acknowledge the University of Wollongong's Ambassador to India, Adam Gilchrist, for his role in helping to secure this agreement, as well the support of Austrade and Industry and Investment NSW,' said Craig Peden, the University of Wollongong's Director of Corporate Relations.
