Inspired, a global games technology company – supplying virtual sports, mobile gaming and server supported gaming systems – has set up its Centre of Excellence in India at the Infopark here.

The new office which will initially seat 30 people, was inaugurated by Infopark Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Hrishikesh Nair, in the presence of Inspired Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Tariq Tufail.

“We chose Infopark after an exhaustive search for locations across Chennai, Thiruvananthapuram , Coimbatore. Infopark scored highly as we felt the city was high on local knowledge, connectivity to international hubs, rich talent pool, work life balance and IT facilities. In our Kochi office, we initially plan to employ around 30 professionals with expertise in gaming and strengthen our team to 100 by 2022. Once the initial operations of Kochi office are streamlined, we are also planning to migrate operational support from our onshore office in the United Kingdom (UK) to Kochi,” said Tariq Tufail.

He also explained that the company, through their new Centre of Excellence in Infopark, aims to develop technology platforms that facilitate the delivery of games.

“The Kochi offshore centre will be working on the company’s Remote Game Server, a complicated software platform that hosts gaming content and handles the systems integration to iGaming Platforms. The platform though currently in production, is expecting to grow organically in tune with market demands,” he said.

“Gaming is a fast and ever-growing industry and Inspired is one of the key players globally in this industry. Their presence in Infopark will turn eyes of other similar companies to our IT parks in Kerala”, Hrishikesh Nair said.
