RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT DIVISION

In Research & Development:

Our goal is to offer clients the best possible services according to their specifications and requirements at a very competitive price within an agreed upon period. Moreover, most importantly, we seek to create and maintain a friendly and human rapport, which makes it possible to have close collaborations and regular communications with our clients, if they so choose.

Strength lies in our ability to mobilize some of the most expert and knowledgeable consultants in their respective fields. By virtue of their extensive and diverse (individual and combined) professional experiences, we are proud to be able to guarantee quality work and satisfaction a timely and cost-effective way to our clients.

Specialty is in the interpretation of professional and technical terminology and jargon into easily understood, yet accurate, laypersonís language, and vice-versa (if required). Our consultants are usually native speakers of the languages (i.e., English, Urdu, French, Spanish, and German) in which they offer their services, and could well be located in the areas or countries from which our clients come. The virtual nature of NASTAC gives it an added advantage especially. When, in addition to online services and transactions, the client requires direct on-site visits or face-to-face consultations. We take on both short term and long term along the main axes outlined above, and are prepared to accommodate our clients from beginning to end, provided we are given adequate time.
