Dépèche transmise le 26 août 2009 par PRNewswire

PUNE, India, August 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Zensar Technologies (BSE: 504067, NSE :ZENSARTECH, ISIN :INE520A01019, the leading global IT and BPO services provider, today announced the successful delivery of application development and support and BPO services to Jetstar Airways. The success in this area is one more example of Zensar's successful impact sourcing service, which has been specially designed to enable significant reduction of technology and process costs for recession hit sectors and firms.

Jetstar, which is the low cost airline arm of airline major Qantas, has been showing sustained accelerated business growth since its launch in 2004 and recently announced a record profit before tax of AUD $137 million, a growth of 18% over the previous year. The company has also emerged as the second largest international carrier serving the Australian market after Qantas in terms of passengers carried. In an environment particularly difficult for the airline industry, Jetstar has been a trail blazer. The company has a unique customer-centered approach and this business-technology alignment with the support of Zensar will ensure that Jetstar becomes one of the leading differentiated airlines in the industry.

This partnership with Zensar is focused to deliver high quality IT services to Jetstar's business and leverage IT best practices with a strict SLA management system to achieve quantifiable operational and financial improvements and enhance the delivery of services to its customers.

Stephen Tame, Jetstar CIO and Head of Information Technology, said, "I am confident that the new partnership will deliver long term business benefits. Zensar has demonstrated through a number of assigned projects, and business services activities that they have the organisational agility and service engagement models to partner successfully with Jetstar's Crewing and Operations business. The Zensar team has developed trust and service levels directly with the Jetstar business operations group, and has accepted accountabilities associated with a true IT services partnership."

Dr Ganesh Natarajan, Vice Chairman and MD, Zensar said, "Despite the current market scenario, we are seeing new opportunities both internationally and in the domestic market to strengthen our relationship with existing customers. This partnership with Jetstar Airways is a strategic one for Zensar and with multiple projects on the anvil, we expect to perfect our impact sourcing services to help many troubled airlines in India and abroad to come back into the black and improve their performance in the months to come"

Zensar APAC Head and Vice-President of Sales, J. Parthasarathi credited the win to Zensar's proven business model and the capability to be flexible and adaptable to changing customer requirements and said, "Customers are increasingly focusing on consolidation, cost optimization and value-added services, while at Zensar we bring the best practices to build a strong delivery ecosystem that goes beyond typical customer-vendor relationships - our relationship with Jetstar is built on these principles and we intend to partner with Jetstar in addressing customer requirements for business continuity in the future," he said.

In addition to application development and support, Zensar also delivers crewing and roster building services to Jetstar. With greater competitiveness than ever before within the markets the company serves, Zensar's unique combination of domain expertise, market knowledge and a customer-centric approach will allow sustained growth for Jetstar.
