Synechron signs a Calypso implementation deal with SIX Group, the financial services provider and Swiss Stock Exchange infrastructure operator
PARIS, LONDON, AMSTERDAM, the Netherlands, NEW YORK and PUNE, India, July 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synechron, a global financial services consulting and technology services provider, has signed a Calypso implementation agreement with the SIX Group Ltd., a financial services provider and Swiss Stock Exchange operator. Synechron was selected as systems integrator for the implementation of Calypso v15, the SFR (Securities Finance Renewal) Program, in collaboration with Calypso. The objective of the program is to update SIX's post-trade services where it acts as a contractual Triparty agent for its clients to enhance its Triparty collateral management services.
This innovative project is the first implementation where Calypso is being used to manage contractual Triparty agent activities. The project has been divided into two phases with the first to launch in January 2017. It is scheduled to last two years and will employ a total of forty staff from SIX, Calypso, and Synechron in 2017-2018.
"Synechron is a certified Calypso partner, which gives us access to considerable expertise and concrete Calypso implementation experience. Furthermore, Synechron already is working with Calypso in Switzerland, notably on collateral management implementation, which gives them highly relevant subject matter expertise," said Robert Bornträger, Division CEO of SIX IT who is responsible for the development and operation of SIX's IT Services since 2008.
Project scope and production support
The first team of twelve Synechron consultants was deployed on the SIX project during the first quarter of 2017. A portion of the team works on site while the rest is based at Synechron's European Delivery Centre in Serbia. Synechron's team of onsite and Serbia-based consultants have joined forces with staff from SIX and consultants from Calypso to work together to manage the project, integrate Calypso into SIX's systems, and build a testing and a production support team. Moreover, Synechron will play an important role in providing SIX staff with training covering the technical and functional aspects of Calypso. The project also includes a significant digital services offering which gives SIX clients access to the functionalities of the SFR project through their own infrastructures.
A strategic and cultural fit
Synechron was chosen by SIX among four companies following a competitive call for vendors during 2016. "We are extremely pleased to participate in this ambitious and innovative SFR project together with SIX and with the support of our partner Calypso. This project consolidates all the knowledge we have built up over the past few years in terms of financial software integration including our expertise in collateral management," added Pascal Rellier, Managing Director, Synechron.
In addition to being a Calypso Alliance Partner, one of Synechron's key assets is the existence and strength of its Calypso Centre of Excellence with more than 50 Calypso experts in Europe able to provide in-house training with the Calypso Campus program. The Centre of Excellence was created in 2015.
Furthermore, SIX has found a strategic partner in Synechron: "One of SIX's fundamental values is to foster working relationships with its suppliers that are based on trust. Synechron has shown its commitment to building a long-term partnership with us," added Roger Oehen, in charge of the SFR project at SIX.
SIX operates the infrastructure underpinning the Swiss financial sector and offers a comprehensive range of services around the world in the fields of securities trading and settlement, financial information and payment transactions. The company is owned by its users (approximately 130 banks of various orientation and size).
