Acquire, Grow and Retain High Value Customers

Asta believes the key to long-term sustainable growth lies in the ability to identify, acquire, grow and retain high-value customers. The competitive environment today has never been more complex and fierce. Customers are more demanding and have greater choice in the marketplace. Companies must identify and retain their most valuable customers in order to survive, and those companies that can consistently acquire and grow new high value customers become leaders in their industry.

Asta follows a well-defined project execution methodology. The Asta Organization's Standard Software Processes (OSSP), developed and maintained by a dedicated Software Engineering Process Group (SEPG), drives Asta's project execution methodology.

The OSSP defines the SDLC processes, Procedures, Manuals, Guidelines, Formats and Templates to be used by projects. In addition, the SEPG also maintains the Process Database of published results, artifacts of past projects, library of reusable components and training material. The Project Managers and the Software Engineering Team are well trained in the use of OSSP for their projects.

The Asta Methodology addresses various requirements from Project Acquisition, through Project Execution to Quality Assurance.
