Risk Free Setup through Run and Build of an India captive entity to leverage India and build globally competitive service models, for one of the world’s leading outsourcing advisory firms.

Our client wished to leverage the advantages of India to be more competitive in the global marketplace for their consulting services. They also had, via an acquisition, an existing entity in India, that developed a proprietary product for the company.

CaptiveAide’s approach was to set up a new, company-owned entity in India and merge the existing entity into the new company.

We helped develop the business case and budgets and used our Entry-Transition-Operate-Transform-Switch (ETOTS) Model to execute the transition plan.

Our work included completing the location study and identifying the right facilities, providing the design for IT infrastructure and employee facilities and ensuring the set-up was ready in time for the first batch of recruits. We deployed our ecosystem partners to provide support across Finance, IT, Administration, Recruitment and HR Administration. We also localized the global HR mandates and policies, developed locally appropriate Role and Compensation structures and provided the core team of managers for the India facility. We also conducted workshops to orient the senior leadership on getting their offshore plan right and also conducted two-way culture workshops

The offshore center provided significant, demonstrable business benefits around operational efficiency and profit uplift to the business. The entire business was eventually acquired and CaptiveAide continued to provide provide local oversight and governance to the India entity till it was acquired and merged into a larger India offshore center.
