This new office and FinLab will support Synechron’s ongoing strategy to develop innovative technology to help the financial services sector.”
The new FinLab in Paris will allow clients to have direct interaction with the latest technology and prototypes in the market: from chatbots and Robotic Process Automation (RPA), to Natural Language Processing (NLP) and gamification models.

The demand for true technological innovation is higher than ever, and as Paris becomes one of the EU’s top hubs for FinTech, our new office in Paris will not only bring our extensive expertise to ambitious businesses in this region but will also highlight the vital role that Fintech will play for businesses in the region.”
