We have been working with Apar for over 10 years in Singapore and when we decided to explore an offshore option, Apar was our first choice given the quality of resources they had provided. We were very impressed with the speed and agility with which Apar helped us set up our offshore analytics centre. Apart from the high-quality resources, we are very happy with the way Apar handled the engagement providing valuable advice on the intricacies of offshoring and supporting us on all aspects of setting up the centre which is of strategic importance to us.
