The S&T Group is specialized in professional business consulting and provides high quality IT solutions that address and solve customer needs in challenging environments. We successfully serve medium-sized and large companies in main areas of the trade business, with a particular focus on retailers, wholesalers & distributors, logistics companies and freight forwarders.

Saturated and emerging markets demand localized strategies and tailor-made go-to-market processes. Even if the purchasing behavior of consumers or business customs may be similar in some regions or closely related industries, each individual company model shows significant differences in terms of heritage, history, growth, expansion, understanding about markets, management capacity and execution quality.

We are well aware of these requirements and have adopted an approach of providing easily customized process re-engineering in different markets and taking a deeper look at your individual business lines. The S&T Group is oriented to achieving practical benefits and satisfied customers and our learning from the past shows that analysis and the drawing up of strategies are important, but the most critical factors are those that determine your acceptance by customers and employees. A key aspect is professional execution. We therefore work with benchmarks and utilize our considerable experience in order to make the most of your current strengths and to improve your margin growth in many areas.

Customers and consumers are generally well informed these days, a fact which means that high standards must be maintained to remain in business. The presence of stronger and larger competition doesn’t allow any mistakes. More stringent legal and compliance requirements demand changes in production, reporting and finance. Margin erosion and complex business relationships lead to a need to pay increased attention to your business processes. We strongly believe in profound re-engineering of your strengths and the bridging of possible gaps with the right IT solutions. This is the business we understand.

Our professional focus is on:
  • Business Process Reengineering (BPR) & Consulting
  • IT Solutions and Applications: ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning), Industry Solutions, Business Intelligence
  • Software Development
  • Implementation & Delivery
  • Support & Maintenance Services
The S&T Group’s IT solutions implemented in 22 national markets utilize technology from major global players – our partners. All special customer requirements can be satisfied by our own software teams, which have access to more than 300 specialists. Another advantage of working with us is our core strengths in Business Intelligence (BI) and specific industry solutions (vertical solutions).
