Annik expands operations to ChinaDecember 1st, 2008 - 2:00 pm ICT by ANI
Gurgaon (Haryana), Dec.1 (ANI-Business Wire India): In another strategic move that allows for broader global coverage and language support, Annik, one of the leading research outsourcing companies in India, has started operations in China.
The Shanghai facility will service three major Asian markets - Japan, China and Korea - with local language support capabilities.
This strategic investment allows Annik’’s customers to expand their scope of work with Annik. China has been seen as a strategic location both in terms of the domestic market and the ability to provide support in multiple Asian languages by many large companies.
This center is the first initiative in providing such operational capabilities across Asian geographies and languages. Annik has been providing support for some western European languages from the India center.
The Shanghai center adds Japanese, Mandarin and Korean to the list of languages now supported by Annik and provides the company an established footprint in key markets where it expects growth for its services.
The Shanghai facility is fully operational and can scale up as required by our customers. “Our customers are all around the world. This operational model helps us provide regional services and quicker turnaround”, says Sandeep Bhatia (COO). “As we grow, we will look at an ideal mix of onshore and offshore talent to optimize our service delivery model”.
Commenting on this move, Rahul Sahgal, CEO of Annik said “We are proud of this important milestone in the growth of the company. This expansion reaffirms our commitment to our clients to expand our scope and coverage from purely English and Western European countries to other strategically important markets where there is tremendous opportunity for growth of Annik services”.
On another note, Annik has been named one of the Fast 50 Technology companies in India in a study conducted by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu. This is the second time in 3 years that it has been recognized for this award. It has also been selected in the Fast 500 Technology companies for the entire Asia Pacific region three years in a row.
Founded in 2000, Annik has been a pioneer in Market Research Outsourcing and Data Analytics in India. Known for domain expertise and technical knowledge providing creative solutions, Annik has helped researchers work more efficiently and effectively. With more than 400 employees and 24 x 7 operations, we are in a unique position to support clients around the world. (ANI)
