BANGALORE, India – Sept. 26, 2018 –In a move to expand its presence in India, global sales and marketing firm ZS announced its plan to open an office in Bangalore.

For more than 35 years, ZS has been dedicated to helping companies around the world and across multiple industries address a wide range of sales and marketing issues. Currently, ZS’s New Delhi and Pune offices have more than 3,900 employees who work across the business consulting, business operations, and business technology and software development spaces.
