How Does Synechron Contribute to the FinTech Industry?  

At Synechron, we combine innovative ideas with deep financial services acumen (across banks, asset managers, stock exchanges, infrastructure providers, hedge funds, et al.) and insurance business knowledge. We understand the broad financial services industry’s pain points, regulatory requirements, and best practices. We help build real-world solutions to enable firms’ competitive advantages and help them achieve their objectives.

We're innovators, designers, developers, strategists, and multi-disciplined skilled technology experts, and we’re transforming the fintech industry. What’s more, we rely on our ‘Power of 3’ capabilities – digital, consulting and technology expertise -- to deliver end-to-end digitally-forward solutions that solve our clients’ and industries’ complex business problems.

What Differentiates Synechron from Other Companies?

Synechron leverages a dedicated research & development budget toward innovating creative, cost-effective and future-forward solutions that enhance operating efficiencies and enable digitally-driven capabilities for clients. To date, we have ideated, created and deployed eight award-winning Accelerator programs that include 70+ individual solutions in areas such as A.I./data science, including national language processing, machine learning, data analytics, robotic process automation, Internet of Things (IoT), and more. We were also an early industry innovator of blockchain-led technology solutions.

Other proprietarily-developed suites of innovative Accelerator solutions include InsurTech tools for insurance companies, WealthTech tools for relationship/asset managers to utilize for/with customers, RegTech tools to better control the intricacies of regulatory compliance, Digital Ecosystems to co-create value by partnering for customer value chains, and our newest InvestTech Accelerator built to solve challenges facing buy-side companies.           

Our now 13 globally located Financial Innovation Labs (‘FinLabs’) serve as innovation hubs that allow for 300+ cross-functional and technical expert team members across our offices to collaborate on next-generation solutions. The innovation continues as clients’ problems are surfaced and articulated, and as clients partner with Synechron to develop proofs of concept and minimum viable products.

Synechron does not believe in cookie cutter solutions, nor do we “sell products.” Even where an industry-specific solution is created and made available broadly, we customize solutions to the unique needs of each client.
