At OST, we've coined the phrase "Practical Innovation" — the process of taking your big idea, mixing in our expertise, and leveraging information technology to make real, transformational changes in your business.
OST offers a highly unique combination of skills you might only expect to find in one of our multi-billion dollar competitors. But working with us — the comparatively "little guy" — yields some serious advantages. In fact, we can deliver quality results in half the time. At less than half the cost. Why? Because we're large enough to boast a deep bench of standout application developers (over 50), business process consultants (over 10), senior data center IT professionals (over 15), and a rock-solid project management office (PMO)…but we're still small enough to keep things lean and agile. And we're not afraid to apply some good ol' common sense liberally, as required.
In 2011, we performed over 80 custom projects with a customer satisfaction rating of 98.7%. (That's out of 100, folks.) The following are a few examples of those cutting-edge customer jobs:
Developing a just-in-time inventory portal for a multi-billion dollar international client, allowing them to now deliver information to their customers in four hours — instead of the previous six-week timeframe. The client called the solution "a game changer" for their business.
Partnering with a global diversified technology and industrial leader by taking reams and reams of data and creating a series of dashboards and kiosks that monitor, track, and inform others about energy usage and consumption to positively affect behavior change.
Working with a small, local business to take them from an environment that was paperwork intensive to a completely paperless one, by looking at the problem strategically with a consultative, architectural approach. We even put one of our senior-level consultants in the client's offices…smack-dab between the CEO and Operations Director. This method helped foster an unparalleled level of communication between vendor and client.
So, what about you? How can OST and our Practical Innovation process help your company solve its big issues — and make your big idea a game-changing, sanity-saving, customer-praising, income-generating reality? Let us know today!
