MUMBAI and DALLAS, February 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Aegis Limited, a global outsourcing and technology services company announced today
that it has been recognized with the Excellence in BPO/ITES Award for Large Enterprise
Category by the Indian Merchant Chambers. This recognition was bestowed upon Aegis during
the Annual Indian Merchants Chambers (IMC) IT awards 2014.
Established in 1907, The Indian Merchant's Chamber is recognized as India's top
chamber of trade, commerce and industry with over 3000 members. Indian Merchants Chamber
(IMC) - IT awards is an initiative to acknowledge organizations which have contributed
significantly in area of Technology and Business Transformation. It acknowledges IT / BPO
Companies and end users of IT/BPO for technological solutions, applications and
improvements that have transformed the industry.
Sandip Sen, Global CEO, Aegis Limited said "We are humbled with this recognition from
the prestigious Indian Merchants Chamber. This recognition further acknowledges the
breadth of services we provide and particularly our investment in global delivery model,
customer experience management and domain capabilities which is driving better business
outcomes for our clients".
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Shailesh Vaidya, President, IMC, said that, "India is
now known to churn out one of the best quality of IT in the world today. IMC IT Awards
2013 are the first step to recognize this fraternity of industry, which has made IT
synonymous with India. Technology has changed the way we look at the world today. It has
made life easier and more efficient for us, and India has now become a name to reckon with
in the international IT sphere."
Giving an overview on the IT sector, Dr. Lalit Kanodia, Chairman, IT Committee, IMC,
said, "There was a need for taking up the issues of IT sector seriously in the current
scenario. Software Exports from India were expected to be around $85 billion this year,
despite the global meltdown. Together with domestic software revenues, IT Services
constituted 1% of our GDP in 1998, 4% in 2008 and 6% today. If IT Hardware is included, IT
constitutes about 71/3% of our GDP. This is about half the share of entire manufacturing
sector in our economy, and thus underlines the importance of IT to India."
