Based in Sweden, the company offers solutions in four key areas: digital distribution; growth solutions; financial services; and professional services. A public company, it is listed on the Nasdaq First North Premier. Backed by 30 years of experience, Seamless Distribution Systems is a global company, serving more than 500 million customers. Starting as a digital value distribution company, it had multiple partnerships, including Ericsson for global distribution and channel management. The company aims to facilitate a digital revolution in financial transactions for underserved people in emerging markets. It has a direct presence in 11 countries including India where it has a development centre to deliver custom solutions. Customer Challenge Seamless Distribution Systems' presence in India is primarily leveraged to deliver technical support and custom development, serving customers in Africa, Europe, Asia and the US. Many of its customers are running mission-critical applications for which high uptime is required. As a development centre, it has large teams of developers working for custom applications with tight deadlines. These teams are working on multiple projects in a collaborative environment with other Seamless Distribution Systems' developers at different locations and the customer site. High uptime and availability are critical business needs as billing is connected to the number of hours developers are logging and to achieve timely delivery schedule. Considering that time and material is a commonly used engagement model in software development, data centre downtime leads to massive revenue loss, especially when there is a large number of developers. At the same time, security is a pre-requisite while serving customers from India. To deliver timely and high-quality services, Seamless Distribution Systems must have a solid technology platform to collaborate seamlessly and deliver uninterrupted services to customers. Seamless Distribution Systems needed a solid technology partner to deliver reliable, secure and highly available data centre services. Setting up and managing a data centre is time-consuming and tedious, shifting focus from its core activity. So, Seamless Distribution Systems turned to STT GDC India to take advantage of its co-location facilities and focus on its business objectives.
