Why partner with Phi for Summit services?

Phi was formed with initial hires of globally recognised Summit experts and we are proud to employ the leading Summit experts in the market. Our consultants are certified under Finastra’s FCA and FCI programmes.  When it comes to Summit there is nothing we have not seen and no problem we cannot solve. 

We were the first provider to build a nearshore Summit capability and today we provide the most complex of projects and services from nearshore without loss of quality. 

We have the latest versions of the Summit software in our delivery centre. Our subject-matter-experts are familiar with the newest features in advance of our clients. And we bring an understanding of application best-practice across both functional and technical lines, born from our unique inside perspective on the most complex Summit installations in the world. 

The result? We deliver again and again for our clients who choose to remain with us in the long term. 

Providing a comprehensive range of specialist services designed for your unique requirements.
