Kapoor added that keeping customer centricity at the core, the company has reorganised and redefined its service lines to align with contemporary market demands and customer priorities in the hyper-digital and subscription economy.

The company signed deals worth USD 153 million in total contract value (TCV) during the quarter.

In dollar terms, the company's net profit more than doubled to USD 15.4 million, while revenue was up 5.9 per cent to USD 128.4 million in the June 2021 quarter from the year-ago period.
