With over 100 years of collective senior management and consulting practice experience, Plintron Consulting assists you with regulatory processes, strategy, marketing, operations and finance.

We transform your ‘powerful brands’ such as banks, insurance companies, retailers with a strong moat into a eco system of complementary competitive telecom services, to cross sell your services, promote products, engage customers with loyalty programs which will lead to reduced churn.

Most businesses are going through business transformation in a highly competitive market where customer loyalty is changing by disruptive changes in business models and offerings. This requires an experienced and knowledgeable team as an advisor to navigate the complexities in regulatory, technology, operations and business.

The Internet Of Things is also changing the way businesses operate, at a fundamental level. Research indicates that as many as 3 out of every 4 IoT projects fail to meet their business objectives, and deliver real, sustained value and insights to the underlying businesses. We understand that IoT is not just providing connectivity, or displaying a dashboard of aggregated data. A successful IoT implementation requires deep understanding of technology as well as of the business, in order to gather, analyze, and take action on key metrics. Plintron’s end-to-end capabilities allows us to take a holistic view of your business requirements, and approach your project with a clear understanding of outcomes and expected gains.
