Neptune Software plc today announces the establishment of Neptune Financial Software Pvt. Ltd. in Chennai, India.
The new wholly owned subsidiary is the focal point of Neptune's strategy to expand its own Rubikon development capacity, provide an international support centre, as well as sales and pre-sales capacity for the Asia region.
The new operation will include a strong team of 60 developers, many of whom were transferred over to Neptune from Cordiant Technologies as part of the conclusion of the BOT (build, operate, transfer) agreement that had previously been in place.
Neptune Financial Software Pvt. Ltd. will therefore become a fully functional regional office, taking on the bulk of development for Rubikon. It will also have a purpose-built customer support centre and a full operating training centre for clients, partners and staff.
Neptune's global expansion is successfully reaching out into Asia, with a number of wins in the region in 2009. It is therefore appropriate timing to launch Neptune Financial Software Pvt. Ltd. in Chennai, India, where additional resources for development, implementation and sales will be recruited.
According to Simeon Agu, Chairman and CEO, 'Asia is proving to provide fertile ground for Rubikon growth, with a number of wins in the region and a healthy pipeline, therefore reinforcing operations to cover the territory is a natural step for us to take. We have big plans for Rubikon. Chennai's location makes it a perfect strategic hub for development, support and sales.'
