Fujitsu Services channels 10 million euros to new competence center (Corrected)

Sapo opens laboratory at the University of Aveiro

Today, the new skills center under the responsibility of Fujitsu Services was opened in Portugal, which will provide services to 40,000 users in 106 countries and in 12 languages, including Portuguese, as TeK had already said yesterday.

This infrastructure will receive an investment of 10 million euros by the end of this year and 4.2 million euros from now on. Of the total invested, 80 percent will be channeled to human resources, namely through salaries, training, recruitment and management.

As TeK reported yesterday, one of the objectives for this center is to recruit 500 employees by the end of 2008. The team that integrates the center’s staff should be «highly qualified and proactive», with multilingual skills privileged, team work and cultural alignment, explains Sonja Habernig, responsible for managing the new Competence Center.

When opting for Lisbon to implement the structure, Fujitsu Services thought of the advantages of the Portuguese capital’s geographical proximity to the major European decision-making centers and the country’s strong cultural alignment.

Editorial Note: By mistake, Fujitsu Siemens was mentioned in the news, when in fact the competence center is the responsibility of Fujitsu Services, a company distinct from the Fujitsu group.
