NCS helps enhance the quality of life for Hong Kong people via IT solutions

Singapore and Hong Kong, October 18, 2006

NCS Group, a leading regional information technology and communications engineering service provider in the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions continues to enable Hong Kong SAR Government to enhance the quality of life of its citizens via IT solutions - further strengthening IT usage in Hong Kong.

Since 1999, NCS Hong Kong has been assisting Hong Kong SAR Government to provide its citizens and businesses with timely and responsive services, via the strategic use of IT.

NCS has developed and implemented the following key projects together with Hong Kong SAR Government.  For the Immigration Department - a one-stop visa application processing services; for the Department of Health - an integrated public health information management system; for the Education and Manpower Bureau - an online integrated School Administration System; and for the Commerce and Industry Technology Bureau - an integrated web-based electronic data interchange for cargo manifest processing (EMAN) system.

NCS Hong Kong believes that it can help Hong Kong SAR Government to become even more effective, thereby making it more attractive to foreign investment, which in turn further enhances Hong Kong’s status as a springboard to China.

“NCS is committed to ensure the success of digital government transformation by delivering the best practices, services and processes to help public sector agencies in Hong Kong,” said Dr Chong Yoke Sin, CEO of NCS Group. 

She added, “NCS Hong Kong has made major inroads into the public sector in Hong Kong, ever since its first e-government project six years ago. There is a strong growth in the number of projects this year. This is a good indicator that Government agencies in Hong Kong trust NCS Group's expertise in delivering high quality outcomes to enhance the quality of life for all Hong Kong people”.

NCS has been in Hong Kong since 1999.  Led by General Manager, Wilfred Tan, NCS Hong Kong has implemented many large-scale public and private sector projects.  NCS Hong Kong is also looking to apply its regional Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) capabilities to Hong Kong's fast growing enterprise market.

Dr Chong stated, “Hong Kong is, and will remain, one of NCS’ primary strategic markets. NCS is well positioned to partner and create business value for the economy of Hong Kong". 

"As part of our desire to grow in Hong Kong, NCS is also continuing to invest in its leadership position in China's fast growing IT industry. NCS is fully equipped with the right capabilities to attract application development and business processing outsourcing contracts from Hong Kong - NCS is one of the few software development centres in China to recently attain CMMI L5 (Capability Maturity Model Integration, Level 5) standard,” added Dr Chong.
