Patni Telecoms Consulting to fulfill market need for impartial advice coupled with full range of implementation services

London, 4 September, 2007: Patni Computer Systems Inc. (NYSE: PTI), a leading global IT services provider, is today launching a new offering to the telecommunications market called Patni Telecoms Consulting (PTC). The new PTC brand is based on the global capabilities of former telecoms specialist Logan Orviss International (LOI) that Patni acquired in July this year.

Spearheaded by LOI founders Colin Orviss and Brendan Logan, Patni Telecoms Consulting will bring the same vendor-independent, impartial advice to mobile, fixed and converged communications network operators and service providers that built a strong reputation for LOI in the market. The consulting practice will be fully supported by the reach and experience of Patni, which also offers systems integration and managed services for communications players both in Europe and globally.

PTC’s areas of expertise extend across the entire telecoms ecosystem, from consultation on business models and operational strategy to functional areas such as customer lifecycle management, revenue management, assurance and service delivery, and actionable advice on all areas of infrastructure, including core and access networks.

Brendan Logan, Senior Vice President at PTC, said: “The demand for strategically sound and independent advice grows daily as the telecoms market continues its evolution into enriched third party and content services. We deliver an impartial viewpoint on systems, technology, architectures and business models, and – thanks to Patni – we now have the capability to fully assist operators in acting upon our advice by implementing what they require for revenue growth and competitive market success. With new European Union (EU) regulations on the horizon and new commercial drivers to contend with, including new media channels and new technology platforms, our consulting services will aid operators to navigate future challenges.”

Neeraj Gupta, Executive Vice President at Patni, commented: “The former LOI team brings us thought leadership and strategic IT advisory capabilities to assist operators in this rapidly changing space. Through the expertise of our highly-regarded management team led by Colin Orviss and Brendan Logan, Patni brings an integrated combination of offerings that is unique in the market. We are putting the required energy and support behind it to succeed, and our customers can now access a much richer set of capabilities supported by a company-wide single vision that will ensure the profitable transformation of their businesses on a local, regional or global basis.”
