What Customers say

“This week we successfully went live with the domestic rollout of our foreign exchange and money market systems. The initiative encompassed the integration of 120 systems involving more than 350 people across the organization, 12 technical working groups, and about 30 test teams.
The delivery of the system is a tremendous outcome for us as it continues to transform our capability. Thank you for working tirelessly to ensure that the initiative met its goals”.

“Our sales force recommended a list of implementation/migration partners, including HCL. After a round of interviews, we decided to hire HCL. We were working against a very tight timeline and a lot of unknowns. HCL was able to articulate a migration plan that not only fit our schedule but removed a lot of risks. HCL brought in a team of experts. We are very happy to have worked with HCL and would do it again.”
