Hyderabad: InsideView, a leading player in on-demand Business Search and Intelligence applications, has said that it has plans to double the headcount in India. The company's R&D center based in Hyderabad currently has 15 people, and will be doubled by the year-end.

Umberto Milletti, Co-founder and CEO, InsideView, in an exclusive interview with siliconindia, said, "At present, the immediate plans are to shift the customer facing/support team to India. Apart from product development, the India center will now also provide global customer support, pre sales and post sales, for the company's products. We also plans to hire more people in the coming months."

A majority of software development, testing, and product deployment is done from the company's Hyderabad center. "The team here works on some exciting work like aggregation and structuring of global content providers' data, business search and intelligence. Over the years, this high quality challenging work has attracted bright engineers with patents and paper publications from IITs, BITS Pilani, and from reputed MNCs," said, Shesha Rao, MD - India Operations, InsideView.

Commenting on the U.S Prsident, Obama Barrack's recent decision on denying exemption for IT companies who outsource their work, Milletti said, "In the wake of the economic recession that the U.S. is going through, it is understandable that the Government is pressured to create job opportunities for the large unemployed population. Today when everyone is talking about globalization, it is very difficult for nations to survive without depending on each other. According to me this will just be a temporary setback for all the MNCs until the economy is revived."

Founded in 2005, InsideView develops on-demand Business Search and Intelligence applications. Taking advantage of the convergence of social media and enterprise applications - what it calls "Socialprise" - the company brings the insights gained from subscription-based and user-generated sources to the enterprise. SalesView, its pioneer product, specifically designed to mash-up social data with search and intelligence capabilities to help sales teams monitor data sources, deliver alerts, automate prospecting, discover connections, present extraordinary relevance and user specific intelligence to accelerate sales cycles, and close more deals. The company recently closed a second round of funding of $6.5 million.
