New three-year mandate strengthens NCS’ position as a leading portal solutions provider
NCS Group, a leading regional information technology and communications engineering solutions provider, today announced that they have been re-contracted to manage the Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore’s web portals.
The portals under management include: ONE.MOTORING (http://www.onemotoring.com.sg), the definitive information and transaction gateway for motorists; PublicTransport@SG (http://www.publictransport.sg), a commuter’s guide to the public transport system and services in Singapore; and MyTransport.SG

Under the agreement, NCS will provide end-to-end services and operate and maintain the three portals and LTA’s e-service platforms. This includes round-the-clock Security Operating Centre (SOC) monitoring and also initiatives to grow the number of users.
