“We closed FY20 very strong, for the first time in Persistent’s history crossing the half billion-dollar mark in revenue. We had particular strength in our Technology Services Unit, which delivered a robust quarter driven through solid expansion. We continued a strong expansion of new logos across the business. While Covid-19 is presenting challenges, it is also unearthing business opportunities as every organization now understands that the status quo is not a viable option. Our prescient adoption of cloud technologies internally allowed us to enable more than 99% of our employees to work from home within the first week. This helped us ensure business continuity for our customers. This is a testament of the dedication, spirit and values of everyone here at Persistent.”

Sandeep Kalra, Executive Director and President – Technology Services Unit, Persistent Systems

“We saw secular growth across our top customers, in particular across BFSI and Software & Hi-tech industry segments. We’re delivering differentiated value to our clients by anticipating what they need beyond their current requirements, tapping the best expertise from across Persistent. This combined with our continued recognition by industry analysts including Zinnov, ISG and Constellation is leading to positive traction in new and existing accounts and increased deals, deal sizes.”

Persistent also announced a contribution of Rs. 25 Crores ($3.3M) in support of COVID-19 efforts globally.
