New York, NY, December 9, 2011— MajescoMastek, the U.S. subsidiary of global technology solutions provider Mastek Limited (NSE: MASTEK), today announced the success of its 4th annual user conference held last month in Austin, Texas.

MajescoMastek also welcomed industry experts, including analysts from Novarica, Strategy Meets Action (SMA), and Celent; guest editors from industry publications; and guest speaker Dr. Raj Sisodia, chairman and co-founder of the Conscious Capitalism® Institute (CCI).
The full agenda offered both property & casualty and life & annuity content with a nice balance, from customer case-studies and idea sharing to thought leadership, product updates, new solution launches, and a good amount of fun. The popularity of the MajescoMastek user event is evident in the 25% year-over-year increase in attendance and the outstanding attendee feedback. The conference theme “Enabling the Future of Insurance” was well integrated throughout the two day program, including all 15 sessions.

The event wasn’t all business, with attendees having the opportunity to network at receptions, experience great Austin jazz, enjoy a round of golf, and even partake in a chili cooking competition, photos with long horns, Texas line-dancing and an armadillo race. On the final night, MajescoMastek hosted a Customer Appreciation Dinner to thank the user community for their continued commitment to and support of MajescoMastek.
“As a new MajescoMastek customer this was a great experience to interact with other customers and learn about the latest industry trends. The conference was held in a great setting and I especially enjoyed the networking opportunities. Their customer case studies were very informative,” said Dan Colarusso, CIO, Cypress Insurance Group, Inc.
