In Cybercity, Gurgaon, the company is planning to open its 200 people centre. The future plans include scaling this centre up to 1,000 people.

What are your challenges in the Indian telecom sector?

We are handling the global telecom market. The company plays the role of the IT service solution provider in the telecom segment.

Who are your current competitors in the market and how you plan to have an edge over them?

There is not much competition in the market. The company has its own unique methodology to manage services and global delivery which actually separates it from other players in the market. The company believes in providing value to its consumers and therefore it has its own dedicated consumer base.

Is the Indian branding likely to come up soon?

UST Global’s customers include Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies. The company strives towards giving value to these clients. Most of the company’s operations in the telecom sector are relationship driven and delivery driven.  The company is now working towards creating an impact on the Indian customer business.
