TROY — The IT and business process outsourcer Syntel Inc. (Nasdaq:SYNT) Wednesday announced an implementation partnership with Pyxis Mobile, a Waltham, Mass.-based provider of a cross-device mobile application development platform.
The partnership will enable Syntel to use the Pyxis Mobile platform to provide greater flexibility, speed and interoperability in the mobile applications it develops and delivers for devices including iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, and Android smartphones and tablets.
“More and more Syntel clients are seeking robust, secure, full-featured mobile solutions, not just to reach customers, but also to enable their enterprises to work smarter and with greater flexibility,” said Syntel CEO and president Prashant Ranade. “By partnering with Pyxis Mobile, Syntel is able to extend our clients’ enterprises by quickly rolling out new consumer and business applications to a wide variety of mobile devices, without the time-consuming and costly step of creating new code for each platform.”
Added Steven Levy, Pyxis CEO: “Syntel has been providing business value through innovative technology solutions for more than three decades, and by working together, Pyxis Mobile and Syntel can bring a new level of value to today’s businesses and consumers.”
Syntel’s current suite of mobility solutions includes mobile strategy consulting, application development and porting, usability, mobile security, mobile business intelligence and mobile testing and support for the banking, insurance, healthcare, retail, logistics and telecom industries.
Using Pyxis Mobile’s innovative platform software, companies are able to build rich native client applications that run on the most widely used smart devices including BlackBerry, iPhone, iPad, Android, and Android tablets. The Pyxis Mobile platform allows non-developers to create rich, complex mobile apps without coding, dramatically reducing the time it takes customers to build and deploy mobile applications. The platform enables customers to update applications quickly and easily (no code recompilation or
redeployment is required), integrate with unlimited data sources using a plug-in-based architecture, and implement enterprise-grade security.
