Promantra has opened a 30-seater BPO centre at Hitec City in Hyderabad.

Besides bagging the BPO order, Promantra has also announced a joint venture with Northwest BEC proposing to set up a 300-bed geriatric hospital and research centre in Hyderabad.

Promantra’s CEO Dr Praveen Vadlamudi said the BPO centre would focus on attracting US healthcare companies and the multi-year contract will help in handling financial functions of Northwest.

The company is bringing in initial investment of Rs 2.5 crore for the 30-seater facility which will later be scaled up to 150 seats with an investment of Rs 12.5 crore to be made within a year.

The proposal to set up geriatric hospital is in initial stages, he said.
