The London based company, will offer software development and contract skills and will set up a training centre dedicated to SAP's business applications.
According to Eric Forbes, founder and managing director, the company sees India as good source of trained IT professionals, and has started recruiting already. "Our plan for India is to use it as a source of manpower supplies," Forbes said.
The company will begin software development in India some time next year. As well as the SAP business, it is a Microsoft solution provider and a reseller of Apricot PCs.
