Captive Offshore Centers

Global Offshore Centers with a Difference

Also popularly known as Captive Offshore Centers

Captive Offshore Centers are fully owned and manged by parent company, established in offshore geography and used for global operations such as global IT services, shared services, back-office business operations, manufacturing plant for exports etc. They add value by virtue of cost saving with quality and IP in control and easy access to regional and global markets. The globally spread branches of your business can outsource to your own global delivery center in India. These centers have a full on-board management team, a legal entity established in offshore geography. There is 100% upfront investment in setup.
