Recently opened in early August, the center aims to employ 200 to support Computacenter's German operations.
Computacenter's divisional head of group managed services Paul Anderson said that while the firm did see "financial benefits provided through labour arbitrage", the right-shoring move is not just about cost-saving. When assessing options as to where Computacenter's next facility should be based in support of our global delivery strategy, it became clear that Poland was the most strategically advantageous location," he said.
"Not only does Poland has a strong reputation for shared service centre delivery… the fact that there is a strong German speaking capability was also appealing, which in turn allows us to access the vast pool of talented German-speaking graduates to further expand Computacenter's exceptional services."
He added that Computacenter is recruiting to a team of 200 IT service desk analysts and infrastructure specialists.
"The moves is intended to support our German operational delivery capability and support an onshore and nearshore delivery strategy, not necessarily to focus on the CEE market."
The new centre will join Computacenter's global network of service centres in Hungary, Spain, South Africa and Malaysia.
