HTMT, as part of its IT/BPO combination, is also focusing on high-end applications like engineering design and R&D services and has successfully completed pilots in engineering design software services for two companies from Europe - an automobile major and an engineering services company - and regular orders are likely to flow from them for onsite and offshore services.

HTMT vice chairman S. Solomon Raj was quoted in a release as saying: "The rapid growth in our performance during the nine month period of the current fiscal as compared to the previous year was due to continuous ramping up of our IT/BPO combination. Our collaborative business model, which aims to achieve creation of multiple values across the demand-chain by synchronizing our internal processes with the processes of our customers, has also facilitated the growth. The results are in accordance with the guidance given for FY 2002-03."
