Financial institutions

The financial services sector in Central and Eastern Europe faces change as the only constant in this continually evolving market. For this reason it is vital that banks and insurance companies can rely on flexible and efficient IT systems and infrastructures. Amid the realities of fast growth, limited budgets, and regulatory requirements like Basel II, operating in the financial markets in emerging Europe is not without challenges.
This situation, coupled above all with a level of security concerns never experienced before put an enormous pressure on the financial institutions and their IT environments. Insurance companies are battling with dwindling customer loyalty, loss events of magnitudes that are difficult to calculate and high cost pressure.

What S&T can do for you: Solutions and tools for reporting, enterprise planning, score carding and business intelligence.

  • Sales force automation: The rapid development of the customer market for financial products challenges the IT infrastructure, technology and equipment used by sales reps and sales managers in the financial sector. This applies especially to software tools and corporate solutions.
