New York-based consulting firm Synechron is set to open the doors of its new innovation centre in London.

The opening follows the launch of a similar project in Dubai in October 2015. More centres are planning across the globe, too, in New York, Florida, Amsterdam and Pune.

Synechron Digital Innovation Centres (SDIC) are to act as hubs for clients “committed to investing in technology and digital transformation”.

The technology available to clients working at the centre will include artificial intelligence, Amazon Echo, blockchain apps and tablets with built-in apps for gamification.

“We envisioned and invested in building a space where our clients can come and touch the latest in the digital world, get inspired and learn about what trends and technologies are disrupting their customers’ banking experiences worldwide,” says Faisal Husain, CEO of Synechron.

“We want to help our clients be at the very forefront of digital transformation to drive an entirely new concept of banking interaction and engagement.”

The London SDIC will be operational from 25 May 2016 and will offer full day or half day sessions as well as prototyping and hour-long technology workshops.

“With the ability to try out our new technology first-hand, our clients will leave fully energised and inspired by transformational concepts that only Synechron has a track record of delivering,” says David Horton, Managing Director for Innovation at Synechron.
