Technology consulting and back-office services provider Auxis has expanded in the United States with the launch of an office in Midtown Manhattan, New York.
The new center will focus on supporting clients in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region, the company said in a press release.
“We have experienced an increased demand from companies in the Northeast,” said Raul Vega, Auxis Founder and CEO. “Having a local presence will greatly enable our ability to deliver high-touch support.”
Ft. Lauderdale, FL-based Auxis is a major proponent of nearshore outsourcing, with its founders often endorsing the idea that Latin American countries are more ideal for US companies to launch shared services centers than far-flung locales such as India and the Philippines.
In 2015, it announced plans to invest US$30 million in Costa Rica and increase its headcount in the country to in excess of 1,000 in a space of five years.
In an interview with Sun Sentinel, Vega said American businesses can save between 30% and 40% in operational cost if they run their shared services center in Costa Rica rather than the United States.
In addition to Costa Rica, Auxis claims to have ‘supporting centers’ in Colombia and Mexico, but it is not clear where they are located and how many people are employed there.
Among the services it offers are finance and accounting, billing, IT support, customer service, and human resources administration, in addition to IT consulting, with its clients including Pepsi, Target, Shoes for Crews, and Tiger Direct, among others.
