What Customers Say

"We were facing two main challenges in our business. First - we needed to reduce our IT cost structure significantly to bring it in line with the declining revenues from the print side of our business. Second - we needed to revitalize and add to our digital product portfolio to reflect the rapidly changing nature of our business. We brought in HCL in March of 2011, and have already seen significant results. We have reduced internal headcount by 30% and reduced IT operating costs by over 20%. Additionally, HCL is playing a critical role in several of our new product development initiatives. This has allowed us to improve the quality of our digital products and reduce costs.”
