Clients from around the world have used our expertise to successfully transform their businesses.

 


Professional Services

A successful journey to the right process solution goes smoother with the right implementation partner. Backed by our deep understanding of process solutions, extensive in-house domain knowledge and highly experienced consultants, all of our services are tailored to meet the needs of each client.

A Better Approach

Our approach works. Nearly 100% of projects that engage with DST Professional Services go into production and nearly all customers re-engage us after the initial implementation to expand their rollout.

Low Service Cost to Software Ratio

Our service cost to software license ratio is among the industry's lowest.
We routinely deliver point solutions in two to four weeks and full-transformations in 6-12 months.

Experienced Process Consultants

With a typical DST tenure of more than 10 years much of it in process improvement within highly regulated industries - including financial services and healthcare - our consultants have the experience needed to successfully drive your organization to the right business process solution.

Global Implementation Team

Our global consulting services operate out of offices in the USA, United Kingdom, South Africa, China and Australia. We have implemented our solution worldwide and are committed to providing the highest professional standards on projects of all sizes.

Personalized Delivery Models - Tailored to Fit Your Needs

Pre-Services Proof of Concept:

Not sure where to start for the greatest impact? Start small by working with our team to take one process, change it then demonstrate how it would work within your business environment - all within two weeks. By seeing rapid development with rapid results, you can gain clarity on the best next steps for your organization.

 

Turnkey Services for Fast Results:

Sometimes, you need to transform a process as quickly as possible or may not have the resources to manage it yourself. Our turnkey implementation services can meet this need. We bring in our complete team – project manager, consultants, technical leads and developers - and take ownership of your process environment for the duration of the project.

 

Transformation with Knowledge Transfer:

In addition to transforming business operations in production, this model enables your staff to become self-sufficient, learning to effectively manage future process changes in your organization. Initially, our consultants coordinate and lead the project, then assist your team as they transition to take on a greater level of responsibility. The project plan is co-managed to give ownership on both sides. We stay by your team's side post go-live to ensure all goes smoothly as the new processes are adopted in your organization.

 

In this model, we provide best practice guidance and a depth of process and BPM knowledge so your staff can learn how to build something that will work for your organization long term. By working side-by-side, your team gains the confidence needed to make changes and take control using the AWD platform.

 

Advisory and Design Support:

In this model, our experienced process design consultants provide additional bandwidth to help your project succeed, providing on-demand deliverables as directed by your team.

What are clients saying?

Senior Manager
Global Investment Management Services Firm*

"As a business leader, it is challenging to compare and contrast third party resources to solve complex business problems that can impact the growth and technology roadmap of your organization. It can be difficult to know what to trust, when to invest and how to engage with confidence to reach a successful outcome.

DST helps significantly reduce or eliminate the mental clutter that can confound the decision process through their rigorous but responsive Value Management approach. Their professionals instill confidence early on, helping me garner the critical support required from other stakeholders in the business.

DST is a global enterprise with people, service and technology literally spanning the globe but they have a unique way of distilling that vast IP in a way that makes me believe they care about our business, listen to our needs, and most importantly, they can translate that into solutions that will address our challenges. They do all of this with a sense of compassion and partnership which is very important to me."

 

"[The DST Value Management Practice] provided the foundation to understand the value we could derive from AWD. It helped us connect the dots, to understand the art of the possible, of how AWD could be used differently to better support [greater efficiency and deliver a better customer experience]."

"[The Value Management Process] showed us how we could lessen our dependency on IT by placing process re-design in the hands of our business owners, allowing the business to quickly configure AWD10 to meet the needs of our customer and financial advisors."
