SETsquared member invests in India

19thApr 2011

Software testing and hardware verification provider TVS opens office in India and takes part in a UK trade mission to the country.

UK company TVS, a supplier of software testing and hardware verification solutions, has opened an office in Bangalore, India. The office, which is a joint business venture with local company Embitel, aims to bring chip verification and validation services to the Indian market, but also offers TVS's UK and European customers a safe route to off-shore development in chip design and in verification.

TVS specialises in providing software testing and hardware verification solutions to customers in the software and electronics industry either by providing highly-qualified and experienced verification engineers for an in-house project, or by organising off-shore chip verification services through a blended delivery model.

"A number of companies recognise the benefits that off-shore development brings - mainly access to large numbers of highly educated, professional engineers - but find it difficult to find the right partners and then execute on their projects," says Mike Bartley, CEO of TVS. "Managing off-shore development can be a challenging process, but at TVS we have many years experience of handling such projects for our clients. Now with our new Indian office we are validating our long-standing relationship with the country and our confidence in the skills and expertise of its engineers. Our blended delivery model provides the local support to companies in Europe along with access to the talent pool in India."

The company is already executing projects in Bangalore and Embitel has a good reputation in bringing embedded software development services to that market.

"This joint venture will benefit the customers of both companies," said Sharad Bairathi, managing partner at Embitel. "Our joint partnership provides a fuller range

of expertise and gives us the ability to take on full product testing through use of hardware and software expertise as well as complete product development."

TVS recently identified several major opportunities in the European market and is now recruiting into its Indian office to service those opportunities.

TVS has been a member of the SETsquared Business Acceleration Centre in Bristol since 2008 and provides a crucial service to the flourishing microelectronics cluster in the South West. SETsquared Centre Director, Nick Sturge, commented "Partnerships are the key to successful business growth and TVS is a great example of pioneering such partnerships as well as making the most of global expertise and markets".
