The centre was formally inaugurated on January 5, 2009, by Steve Morris, Chairman, President and CEO, Arbitron Inc, at Tejomaya, L&T's new IT Park located inside Infopark in Kochi.

According to a company release, the Kochi centre had been set up as a world class facility for software engineering, R&D and product development to support Arbitron’s vision to serve the media and market research industry worldwide.
