Aditya Birla Minacs Selects Verizon Business to Improve and Manage Global Communications

MUMBAI, India - Aditya Birla Minacs, a leading provider of business process outsourcing services, has selected Verizon Business to upgrade its global communications network to enhance management capabilities and achieve greater cost efficiencies. The company has implemented a fully managed Verizon Private IP solution to link its Indian headquarters with operations in Canada, Germany, Hungary, the Philippines, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Part of the US$24 billion Aditya Birla group, Aditya Birla Minacs has 12,000 employees across 28 locations in seven countries.  The company is expanding rapidly, having opened up nine new sites since it was formed in 2006 from the merger of Canadian-based Minacs and Mumbai-based TransWorks. Reliable and flexible connectivity to support Aditya Birla Minacs' ongoing growth is therefore paramount to enable the new company to enhance its position as a leading global business process outsourcing player. 

The fully managed Verizon Business Private IP network provides secure, reliable high-bandwidth connectivity across the organisation's key operational sites.  Quality of service is supported by Verizon Business' industry-leading service level agreements.

"Our partnership with Verizon Business gives us flexibility to focus on other critical aspects of our company's IT infrastructure that are necessary to support our future growth," said N. Gajapathy, chief information officer, APAC, Aditya Birla Minacs. "With multiple sites around the world, a secure, reliable global platform is absolutely business-critical. Verizon Business is a truly reliable business partner and was able to offer us the experience and expertise to optimize our infrastructure for scalability and growth."

John Samuel, president of Verizon Business India, said, "Aditya Birla Minacs needed a highly reliable communications network and a dependable partner with the experience to support its growth. Verizon Business' expansive global IP network and proven managed services capabilities, coupled with our in-depth understanding of the needs of expanding multinationals, made us the perfect choice to support the company in achieving its global business ambitions."
