Transformational role

A spokesman for UST said here that its digital transformation efforts were highlighted in the following two case studies:

Muthoot Pappachan Group

From branch to boundaryless — a digital transformation of financial services in India: UST’s work on behalf of Muthoot Blue (Muthoot Pappachan Group) resulted in a fully digital operating model that has led to vastly improved customer experience for millions who depend on its financial services.

As a result of UST’s efforts, Muthoot’s infrastructure was transformed to a fully modern architecture with an agile design flexible enough to incorporate future business needs. The company could bring in significant cost savings while providing a better customer experience.

According to ISG, this collaboration is a standout example of a modern IT infrastructure driving a scalable and sustainable digital operating model.

Ahold Delhaize USA

Strong ROI and new consumer insights from fully automated contactless in-store checkout solution: UST teamed with Retail Business Services, the services company of Ahold Delhaize USA, to develop a Walk-in, Walk-out solution, delivering a contactless store experience.
