Company to open Oklahoma call center, hire 500
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A Dallas-based company owned by Xerox Corp. says it plans to open a call center in Oklahoma City and hire 500 people.
Chris Gilligan, a Lexington, Ky.-based spokesman for Affiliated Computer Services Inc., says the company plans to open the call center in December.
Gilligan says the company needs to hire the new employees quickly so it can handle expected growth after the signing of a new client.
He says ACS chose Oklahoma City in part because space was available for the call center at a local Xerox plant. Norwalk, Conn.-based Xerox bought ACS earlier this year.
ACS provides call center outsourcing services and says it has 150 call centers worldwide.
