The idea for CST started in 2008 when founder Mark Habashi led a project for an enterprise telecommunications company. This company was struggling with a failing modernization effort, and Mark brought the organization, structure and attention to detail that captured the company’s requirements and guided them to a successful project completion. While leading this project, the founding team recognized a quality deficit Information Technology companies. This deficit needed to be filled in order for organizations to successfully complete projects like this one. The idea for CST Systems was born.
Based upon the success of this telecommunications project, CST received numerous referrals for other projects and expanded its commercial consulting and development services. CST worked with financial services, media and entertainment, IT companies and manufacturers to transform business processes, web enable legacy systems, as well as develop and support applications.
CST entered the Small Business Administration’s Emerging Leaders Program. Recognizing a similar need for quality consulting and development services in government agencies, CST is expanding its work with Federal, State and Local Governments as well as educational entities. CST is currently leveraging its commercial best practices and lesson learned with its government clients.
