Debt-laden mining giant Rio Tinto has confirmed it is well advanced with plans to outsource internal business processes, with Indian technology company, Infosys, which is understood to be in the box seat to pick up some of the work.
The Director of offshoring consultancy Mindfields, Mohit Sharma, said it was a logical evolution of Rio’s earlier deal with Infosys to award the new contracts to the same company as it had already tested its capabilities. He suggested, however, that Rio was missing an opportunity to make money from the internal processes that it had developed.
