Right from the day of inception, SGIC paid special attention to customer experience and relationships. SGIC ensured that every employee understood the customer expectations and reacted positively to their constantly changing needs. SGIC deployed customer-centric processes and systems that provided seamless communications to the clients. SGIC made special efforts to understand employee needs and kept them happy and productive. Right from the top management, our topmost concern is customer loyalty. SGIC has learned the skill of becoming a part of the customer’s agenda.

"Our primary goal is to help our clients achieve digital transformation by providing them with effective solutions and experiences.”
'Solving difficulties strategically' is SGIC's major differentiator. While competitors tactically resolve issues to address customers' pain points, SGIC analyses and determines the root causes by funnelling and analysing data/issues through structured processes; identifies tactical versus strategic issues; and designs and implements strategic solutions to address the root issues. SGIC continues to proactively develop talent and provide Cloud-based SAP Solutions, including S/4 HANA, Information Security, Cloud Infrastructure, CRM (SFDC Suite), and Project Management (Agile Enablement). SGIC is a Strategic SAP PartnerEdge and SFDC Partner with insight into their product plans.
Tony says, in order to stay a step ahead of the competition, SGIC identifies the current and more importantly, near future customers' pain points proactively. We then partner with the clients and our vendors to design a solution and invest in developing resources early. Due to strategic relationships with the clients, SGIC resources become an integral part of their strategizing, designing and execution plans. Together with our clients and vendors, we use iterative methodology and sprint ahead with the necessary corrective courses during execution. We become an integral part of client’s execution team implementing newer technologies while others are catching up. Continuous learnings from execution of the sprints further enhances team effectiveness and helps us stay ahead.
