New partner from Vietnam strengthens the CONTACT Global Ecosystem
CONTACT Software pushes its sales activties in South East Asia with a new channel partner. SoluCA is a renowned PDM provider in Vietnam. Now the company is expanding its offering with CONTACT's PLM and collaboration portfolio to meet the increasing customer requirements.
Vietnam's manufacturing industry has been growing at double-digit rates for years and has established itself as an important part of international supply chains. Local companies are increasingly in demand as suppliers and foreign investors - especially from China, Japan and South Korea - are nowadays a backbone of the Vietnamese economy. As a result, development-driven companies must optimize their work processes to meet the demands of globally active customers.
"We have been observing the ASEAN region for quite some time, as we see good business potential in some countries", says Michael S. Murgai, member of the management board and responsible for CONTACT's partner network. "Vietnam is a very promising market and with SoluCA joining the CONTACT Global Ecosystem we now have a strong partner at our side".
SoluCA Co, Ltd. has its headquarters in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), the country's largest city and its financial and economic center. CONTACT's new partner is the first provider in Vietnam to successfully specialize in PDM projects. The company knows from more than eight years of market experience that a PDM system often cannot cover today's customer requirements. "Many Vietnamese manufacturing companies need collaboration solutions that are far more powerful," says SoluCA Managing Director Le Quang Duc. "As a member of the CONTACT Global Ecosystem, we have the opportunity to meet this need very flexibly through the modular Elements platform and its numerous PLM applications".
SoluCA has already conducted first demos at interested parties and is in intensive discussions with several companies from the woodworking and engineering industries about the use of CONTACT's R&D solutions. "SoluCA immediately understood the idea behind our products and technologies and was able to act promptly", says CONTACT's Partner Account Manager Nam Nguyen. "This is impressive and shows us that this cooperation is a clear benefit for our worldwide network".
