NCS to focus on government and enterprise market in Hong Kong in 2006

NCS Group, a leading IT and engineering services provider in the region, today announced the opening of its new office in Hong Kong. NCS plans to solidify its presence and commitment to Greater China via the Hong Kong office, with the aim to be the preferred Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) provider in Asia Pacific.

The move is expected to push NCS to the forefront of the IT services market, focusing on the delivery of its services and solutions to the Hong Kong Government and to the enterprise sector.

In addition, NCS will be reinforcing its core competencies in Business Intelligence (Data-Warehousing), Document Management Systems and Enterprise Application Integration (EAI).

“Hong Kong is one of NCS’ primary focus markets in our regional strategy. Our goal is to grow profitably to become a S$1 billion business within three years through a mix of acquisitions and joint ventures,” states Dr Chong Yoke Sin, CEO of NCS Group.

“We aim to expand our regional business to 30% of annual turnover, to be the market leader for IT services in both the government and enterprise sectors in Asia Pacific.”

NCS has been in the Hong Kong SAR since 1999.  Led by Country Director, Wilfred Tan, the company has implemented several large-scale public and private sector projects.  Public sector projects and services that are currently managed by NCS HK include those within Hong Kong Commerce and Industry Technology Bureau, the Hong Kong Department of Health, Hong Kong Education and Manpower Bureau and the Hong Kong Housing Authority.

In October last year, NCS won a HK$300 million contract with the Hong Kong SAR  Immigration Department to provide a secure document and record management solution. As one of its key objectives, NCS will focus on delivery of the project on schedule, its largest secured contract sealed so far in Hong Kong.
