NCS Group, a leading regional information technology and communications engineering service provider in Asia Pacific and Middle East regions, today announced its plans to continue investing in its leadership position as an IT Service Provider and Business Processing Outsourcing (BPO) company in China.
NCS has already set up a network infrastructure in China with establishment of its China headquarters in Shanghai and offices in Beijing, Chengdu, Suzhou and Guangzhou. NCS is planning to expand its operations and services in China by about 20% per annum.
Announcing the plans in China are Mr Lee Hsien Yang, Group CEO, SingTel, the parent company of NCS Group and Dr Chong Yoke Sin, CEO, NCS Group who have specially flown to Beijing to meet with government officials, partners and customers.
“NCS Group is a successful example of a Singapore multinational company and has operations in 10 countries. By continuing to invest in its leadership position in the China market, NCS will be able to transfer its technical know-how and expertise that it has gained since its inception over 25 years ago. Furthermore, China presents abundant opportunities for NCS to grow into a world-class IT Service Provider and Business Processing Outsourcing Company in the region,” remarks Mr Lee.
NCS is aggressively expanding its business into the western region; beyond traditional YRD and PRD areas. Besides business development, NCS places great emphasis on its application development capabilities in China. In addition to its CMMI L5 certified Application Development Centre in Suzhou, NCS Chengdu was set up late last year to focus on application development and business process outsourcing services, catering to a wide variety of local and multinational clients.
With the broadening of its China network, NCS Group is able to further expand its reach in offering world class quality and professional IT services to the Chinese Government sector, to MNCs as well as to Chinese financial and enterprise companies based in China.
“China is central to NCS Group’s overall growth strategy. We take pride in delivering business value to our clients using world class skill sets. NCS will be investing in the talent in China to raise the bar of IT services as the demand for IT outsourcing and BPO services continue to accelerate. To achieve that, we will provide regular training to our local staff to upgrade their skills and augment our facilities in China constantly,” states Dr Chong.
NCS China has more than 650 employees in China including Chengdu, Suzhou, Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou. Of which, 98% are local talent. NCS believes strongly in the ongoing investment in the quality of people to position itself as an Employer of Choice.
NCS’ leadership position in China’s IT industry is supported by its ongoing focus on attaining international certification for its China operations. NCS is one of the few China-based IT service providers with CMMI level 5 recognition and aims to gain other standard qualifications in the areas of quality processes (ISO standards) and information technology services management throughout China.
