Through its Lean DigitalSM approach, Genpact reimagines clients' businesses by extending digital technologies through the middle and back office to deliver measurable business impact such as revenue growth, cost efficiency, and business agility. This unique approach to rapid and impactful digital transformation of business processes and operations – which leverages mobility along with other key digital technologies – is built upon Genpact's Lean-inspired and patented Smart Enterprise Processes (SEPSM) framework.
"This acquisition is one more important step in our ongoing strategy to strengthen our rapidly-growing Lean Digital portfolio," said Sanjay Srivastava, senior vice president and chief digital officer, Genpact. "Endeavour's mobile capabilities will help our clients achieve the optimal enterprise-wide impact of digital technology by combining our deep industry specific process knowledge with innovative and advanced technologies including mobility and analytics."
"We've been driving mobility success for our clients since the early days of this technology, and we are excited to integrate our more than 13 years of expertise into Genpact," said Avinash Misra, chief executive officer, Endeavour.
