Wipro Digital, the digital business unit of India's third largest software firm Wipro Limited, has opened a new London pod to provide improved digital transformation services to its client in UK and Europe.

Wipro Digital also plans to hire more people in the UK to grow its business and expand the range of services offered by it. In the past one year, the Bengaluru-based software major has recruited more than 600 people and currently it has a headcount of over 4,000 people in the United Kingdom.

"Wipro has shared a long standing and synergistic relationship with leading UK businesses over the past two decades. Our intimate knowledge of the local market, combined with our global experience and operational excellence allow us to help our clients achieve their desired outcomes. Wipro is deeply committed to job creation in the UK and has an abiding interest in engaging closely with the local communities," said T K Kurien, Chief Executive Officer and Member of the Board, Wipro Ltd.

The new pod is purpose-built for Wipro Digital's strategy, design and engineering teams to work in a collaborative and adaptive workspace side-by-side with clients.

Both clients and employees will greatly benefit from the open, free-flowing design, enabling the easy formation of multi-disciplinary and agile groups to help businesses transform and succeed on their digital transformation journeys, the company said in a statement.

Wipro Digital officially opened its new London pod in the presence of several dignitaries including the UK Minister of State for Trade and Investment, The Rt Hon Lord Maude of Horsham (Francis Maude).

"UK companies, customers and employees have all greatly benefited from Wipro's investment in this country since 1995," commented Lord Maude, UK Minister of Trade and Investment. "We are very grateful for their commitment and continued investment, and their decision to locate Wipro Digital's office here in London. I look forward to seeing the results of Wipro Digital's innovative work with UK companies, and the new experiences they will provide for customers around the world."
