ALPHEN AAN DEN RIJN, Netherlands, Sept. 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wolters Kluwer, a global leader in information services and solutions, is celebrating its 10th anniversary in India where it has been supporting healthcare and accounting professionals with technology-enabled information tools and software solutions.
The milestone was marked with a ceremony attended by the Ambassador of The Netherlands to India, Alphonsus Stoelinga. Congratulating Wolters Kluwer, Ambassador Stoelinga said, "India and the Netherlands have been business partners for a long time across many fields such as technology, energy, transport, logistics, finance, and, of course, information services and solutions. Among EU countries, the Netherlands is India's fourth largest trading partner and fifth largest investor. The 10th year of Wolters Kluwer in India is testimony to our long term commitment to this country and we hope to build on this relationship."
Wolters Kluwer is interested in expanding its business in India and supporting Indian Government initiatives such as Digital India, Skill India and Make in India. As India continues its impressive modernization and growth, new generations of Indian doctors, accountants and other professionals will need advanced information tools to help them make the right decisions in an efficient way.
Commenting on the company's progress and plans for India, Corinne Saunders, CEO of Wolters Kluwer Emerging & Developing Markets, said "Over the last 10 years, we have seen double-digit revenue growth in India. We started with a single employee in 2006 and today have almost a thousand employees in various locations across India. India is also home to several of our global software development centers that support cloud-based solutions used by professionals worldwide."
Mr. Shireesh Sahai, CEO of Wolters Kluwer India, added, "Our mobile and cloud-based solutions are well-suited to a country where smart phones are already widely penetrated and can help India address its shortage of skilled personnel. We look forward to the next ten years of supporting India's professionals in taking critical decisions every day."
