Effective IT for Sustainable Business Growth

Invest

Efficiently

Organizations that invest in IT know how important it is to keep the systems that serve as the backbone of their operations updated and properly maintained. And, as the company grows, its technology must be scaled accordingly as well. But with all of the solutions in the market, how do you know which one is the best, which will bring the highest ROI, and, most importantly, which best fits your company? The options are endless, but which one will truly bring value to your business?

If your company needs solutions in anything from IT applications to various infrastructure systems, networks, and IT structures, Beyondsoft’s IT consulting service can help you find the solutions or partners consistent with your company objectives and distinct from your competitors. Our targeted assessment of each client’s needs and objectives, done with the help of industry experts, help us come up with scalable and quality solutions that give them a competitive advantage.

Strategy & Governance

IT as a Business Enabler

Two-thirds of CEO’s consider IT as a strategic weapon and a differentiator according to “IT in Practice®”. Not having a strategy for utilising the competitive advantage of exploiting IT technology is lost business value.

Creation of a business-driven IT strategy takes a concerted effort by top management, the IT organisation, key technology people, business unit management, key business people and other high influencers. We help clients orchestrate and establish IT strategies and effective governance that are intimately aligned to the business goals and priorities, and make continuous development and subsequent execution easy.

SYLVERSYS is a truly technology-agnostic company and used to developing successful strategies by working in partnerships with influential stakeholders on all levels, to deliver both agile and robust results. SYLVERSYS has a recognised approach for proper co-creation of IT strategies, satisfying all relevant stakeholders based on business rationale, deep involvement, teamwork, coaching and visual scenario-building.

Growth companies have set their sights on using technology to edge even closer to their customers. Fresh studies reveal that business strategies shift towards customer intimacy as senior executives believe that the biggest potential for differentiation lies in customer-focused IT strategies and the unique customer experience.

Set up your business technology as a catalyst for customer intimacy.
