MUMBAI: British computer services company Xansa Plc will expand its operations in India and ramp up staff strength to meet booming demand for software services, company chairman said.

Xansa, which has 4,000 employees in India or about half its total workforce, plans to add about 1,000 staff a year over the next few years, Bill Alexander said.

The firm does work ranging from developing software to processing financial transactions out of its three centers in Noida, Chennai and Pune.

Alexander, who was in Mumbai for a software conference, said he plans to expand operations at all the campuses.

In Pune, it aims to triple its headcount in the next 12 months, he said.

At $69 million sterling an annum, the cost of the Indian operations is about 10 per cent of the total turnover of Xansa, Alexander said.
