Lawson Software has announced the opening of the Lawson Philippine Solution and Services Centre (PSSC). The Lawson PSSC, located at Net2 in Fort Bonifacio’s Global City, Metro Manila, will create hundreds of career-oriented jobs for technology professionals in the Manila area. As one of Lawson’s Global Support Centers, the PSSC will provide direct customer support as well as research and development, professional services, and internal shared services to support the company’s growing global business.
Lawson has established a strong PSSC management team, which has already hired more than 120 technology professionals to ramp-up operations. The company plans to nearly double the number of employees at the PSSC this year, and expand to nearly 400 employees by the end of 2007.
Based in the United States, Lawson is expanding its global reach in the Asia-Pacific region as well as Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Lawson chose to locate the PSSC in the Philippines over other potential locations due to strong government infrastructure investment, a stable, quality workforce and support offered by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA).
