SymbaSync Secures OTP Bank Pilot

Edinburgh, Scotland – SymbaSync, Ltd. continues to make strides today with the announcement of a ground-breaking tool in human capital asset management, currently being trialled in OTP Bank’s Headquarters in Budapest, Hungary.

Project Team Builder (PTB) is a human capital asset deployment software, spearheaded by a paid pilot in collaboration with OTP Bank, a top tier player of the financial industry in Central and Eastern Europe.

This marks SymbaSync’s newly acquired focus on team creation in the banking industry after a two-year period of revolutionizing anonymized job-matching.

The powerful new platform bridges a gap in internal project management, allowing for internal talent to be recruited into new projects instantly. Project Team Builder organically improves employee retention and return on investment by instantly engaging employees and (re)deploying them to ideal teams. Project Team Builder unbiasedly matches skillsets to needs – forgoing expenses associated with the inefficiencies of word-of-mouth, internal advertising, and external candidates.

SymbaSync’s founder, Joseph McElmeel says, “We are honoured to have been selected for the pilot by the bank, a European leader in innovation and excellence.  The support and encouragement provided by OTP Bank and the customer growth expertise they bring to the table will substantially impact on our growth.”

The collaboration between SymbaSync and OTP Banks crosses a new threshold into the rapidly developing and resource-intensive practice of building projects and creating new agile team structures within the banking industry. The Project Team Builder implementation into OTP Bank’s current operations will ensure a smooth and efficient distribution of human capital and a more comprehensive service to the bank’s clientele.

Speaking of the contract win, Mark Peter Zsuga, Digital HR Senior Expert at OTP Bank, said: “We have high hopes for this pilot and are really excited about working with SymbaSync. We expect that their solution will revolutionise our project team building process while improving cross-department and – on the long term – even international communications and collaborations within OTP Group.”

The potential of this partnership to expand into 10 markets and implement PTB across Central and Eastern Europe signals a paradigm shift on returns on employee investments and specific project success rates.


SymbaSync helps organizations maximize return on employee investment by providing Human Resources Software to source, qualify, and engage employees to populate project teams. SymbaSync’s tools increase employee satisfaction improving employee ownership, devotion, and retention.

OTP Bank is the leading retail bank in Hungary, and the headquarters of OTP Group, which is currently present in 10 countries and growing rapidly across Central and Eastern Europe through targeted acquisitions.
