Adventity will provide work related to voice and nonvoice operations to be executed by Fostera. New centre is expected to carry out data conversion activities and is expected to employ around 100 people initially.
Adventity has already developed a specialised training programme.The company is also looking at setting up similar centres in other B class cities in India in the long run. Kumar Subramanian, CEO of Adventity, said: Our partnership with Fostera will provide us with access to talent and infrastructure in semiurban areas like Krishnagiri and many more such regions in India. This region remains fairly untapped and gives us an opportunity to provide employment to the youth of Tamil Nadu.
The BPO industry in India has been eyeing the rural sector across the country as the next big destination for launching BPO services. Adventitys foray into Rural BPO furthers this trend, with low infrastructure cost and employment opportunities being many.
Indian BPO companies going rural will help bridge the gap between Indias urban and rural divide, the statement said.
