When a customer does not want a full scale turnkey solution or outsourcing, it may choose to bring in our experts as consultants to fulfill specialized roles in conjunction with their own IT team. Consultants bring in a high level of system and/or business expertise, which may not be available internally within an organization and strategically make a great difference between the success or failure of a project. Ever since our inception in 1993, we have been offering Information Technology specialists with the most current state of the art skills that are needed to meet our client’s requirements and their dynamic information technology environments. Our consultants have had an immaculate and an impeccable record of completing all projects successfully through technical expertise that encompasses a broad range of system development skills; from concept definition to systems development to integration, testing and implementation.

UST develops custom application software tailored to your strict business needs. Even though COTS (commercial Off-the-shelf) solutions are available for a wide range of business applications - still, there are numerous situations in which the client cannot find an existing packaged solution or the requirements are so specialized that no existing package can adequately address the problem and provide all the needed functionalities. That’s the ideal business case for developing a custom application and UST can provide application development services for a wide variety of platforms, using a range of development tools utilizing industry accepted methodologies. UST can analyze your system requirements and develop a totally customized application from scratch to support your business goals. In a more general sense application development may also refer to any type of new custom programming effort for a variety of tasks such as reporting, interface programming, data conversion, data migration, data processing, online transaction processing, database inquiry/updates and endless other computer applications.
Very often organizations make the strategic decision to change their computing platforms and embrace a new hardware platform and/or a new software environment. This introduces several new issues of vital importance which must be addressed to maintain business continuity and successful integration.

We have a well-defined maintenance process and have the expertise to maintain large and complex applications that are implemented at multiple locations.
Over the years companies and organizations have made huge investments in IT systems that run their core business. These systems have been refined and perfected over the years and today many of these systems are the bread and butter of these enterprises. However, over time technology has changed and so have the ways of doing business and so what do you do with your ‘so called ‘legacy’ IT systems ? You can take a revolutionary approach and replace them entirely which might be very risk prone and expensive with costs involving everything from new hardware to software to change management and user retraining. The alternative is to take a less drastic evolutionary approach where you preserve your existing systems and try to “re-engineer” them to adapt to new business needs and make them technologically advanced to compete with the modern day marketplace. That’s the typical scenario for a company needing System Re-engineering services.
UST offers end-to-end Business Process Management services to help companies analyze, re-engineer, improve and automate business processes. We have a team of excellent Business Analysts and System Analysts who will interact closely with the client in reviewing and analyzing their business processes and workflows.

As part of Business Process Re-engineering we become involved in the design, improvement and implementation of integrated systems of people, processes, infrastructure and technology. The main objective of the practice is to increase company profits by increasing productivity at optimum cost and we believe that such a process design will inevitably serve the different areas of importance to all the different business departments. Our business processes re-engineering eliminates waste, improves businesses time-to-market, and increases productivity. The re-engineering process is initiated through an in-house consultation, where we thoroughly examine business processes including how businesses process and fulfill orders, service customers, and track information throughout the company. We look at the business impact of your processes on your production, customer service, sales, and marketing departments as well.

Organizations around the world are outsourcing many of their ‘non-core, non-critical processes’, in an attempt to understand fully their true core competencies, and focus on only those competencies. Business process outsourcing has become the new imperative. Gartner defines Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) as the “Delegation of one or more IT-intensive business processes to an external provider that in turn owns, administers and manages the selected process(es) based on defined and measurable performance criteria.”
UST provides customized knowledge transfer and end user training for our customers as per their special needs and demands. Generally, our training and education services are bundled as a part of our total system integration solution, but occasionally it can be offered separately as well.
