The second office is a delivery centre designed to support some of Capgemini’s key clients in Singapore, as Capgemini continues to deepen existing relationships and commits to growing new ones.
As of October 2014 to September 2017, Capgemini has increased four-fold, from a headcount of 78 to approximately 300 currently. The centre is a key commitment by Capgemini to show its growth and expansion plans in Singapore, which includes increasing its Singaporean work force and strengthening its Singaporean core.
“Singapore has a distinct position in Southeast Asia. The opening of this delivery centre, along with our Applied Innovation Exchange, the only AIE in the region, serves to drive invention and service delivery forward to better cater to the needs of existing clients. The longer term goal would of course be to deepen relationships with new clients and groom local talent to be part of Capgemini’s expansion plans,” said Shinichi Tonomura, Managing Director, Financial Services, Asia, Middle East & Japan, Capgemini.
According to Gaurav Modi, Managing Director, Non-Financial Services, Southeast Asia, Capgemini, “Singapore has continued to grow for us and has become a focal point of multiple initiatives across the region. As the clients in Singapore and Southeast Asia move towards their digital transformation jouney, our new delivery centre will ensure proximity of our people, processes and assets to our clients.”
