New Research Highlights Syntel's Financial Services Specialization

Troy, Michigan, UNITED STATES

TROY, Mich., Sept. 30, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Syntel (Nasdaq:SYNT) today announced that it has been cited for its specialization in financial services in a new research report.

The independent Forrester report, by analyst Sudin Apte, states that "There are several midsize providers that clearly differentiate themselves based on a unique value proposition. They offer an incremental value-add, a unique specialization...that large companies will not normally be in a position to match."

Entitled "Why Do you Need Tier Two Providers? (And you Do Need Them!)," (September 2009) the report cites Syntel for its Banking and Financial services industry specialization, stating that "The players in this category build industry-specific knowledge and solutions. They focus their centers of excellence on harnessing business processes and domain capability."

According to Syntel, it has made significant investments in its suite of financial services solutions, developing targeted services and frameworks for online banking, risk management, fraud management, emerging payments, analytics, compliance, medical banking, trade processing and reconciliations, among others.

The report states that "Syntel, by emphasizing strong client-centricity, further reinforces its value to its clients beyond the simple relevance of its solutions."

Syntel CEO and President Keshav Murugesh remarked that Syntel's emphasis on customer service and "small enough to listen, big enough to deliver" attitude is resonating well with customers.

"Staying flexible and responsive to customers as we continue to grow is the cornerstone of our business model," said Murugesh. "What sets Syntel apart from larger players is that as an agile, more nimble organization, we are better able to truly partner with our clients, driving their operations and enabling them to achieve their business goals through our customized solutions."
