What Customers say

“The HCL AXON team wholeheartedly embraced the challenge and exceeded our expectations. They got 11 countries transacting business and 10 remote locations communicating — all within our 90-day time frame. They are more like a partner than a vendor.”
- Chief Financial Officer, leading oil and gas service company

 

“We appreciate the dedication of HCL employees who are working on the project both from the offshore location in India and on our sites when required. Excellent work was done during the requirement specification phase, which was the core for the success of the overall project. Also, the offshore ongoing support is working well and is saving us from having full-time in-house support in each location.”
