Furthermore, the proposed development of various technologies provides DST and MultiSys the prospective opportunity to expand their Business-to-Consumer (B2C) and Business-to-Business (B2B) solution offerings within their respective ecosystems.
MultiSys’s existing platforms will also be powered by DST and gradually expand into various MultiSys solutions.
“To be successful in the quest of DST’s digital transformation, as a Digital Service provider with its key mission in ‘Creating Convenience and Value through a leading Digital Lifestyle Ecosystem’, DST is collaborating with likeminded key players who share similar digital DNA with DST,” said DST Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Radin Sufri Radin Basiuni.
