The Unisys Corporation said it will launch a new global sourcing services and technology center in Shaghai, China as part of its expansion into the world’s most populous nation. The new facility will provide business process outsourcing, technical help desk, IT, software development, and technology and maintenance support services. Unisys said it plans to expand its presence in China to 1,000 employees with additional facilities.
“Now more than ever, Unisys clients require global sourcing options to further their business strategies, manage costs, and optimize their return on IT and services investments,” said Cal Killen, vice president, Unisys Global Services. “This expansion of our China operations extends Unisys long-term commitment to providing global sourcing options that meet clients’ continually evolving demands in an increasingly competitive global marketplace.”
In addition to providing global sourcing support, the multi-purpose Shanghai facility will serve as an Open Source center of excellence, where Unisys will develop and deploy an open source software environment. It can accommodate 250 seats and has the capability to expand to 550 total seats.
Unisys China operations already include offices in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. Key Chinese clients include TravelSky, Air China, Beijing Capital International Airport (BCIA), Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, ICBC and PBOC.
