Under the investment agreement, FPT Software is entitled to access and allocate resources of Intertec's two service centers in Costa Rica and Colombia. This deal also enables the Vietnamese company to expand business opportunities in the US and Latin America (LATAM), and address increasing demand in these two markets.
This investment is aligned with the strategic direction of FPT Corporation’s subsidiary FPT Software, which is intended to optimize the efficiency of combining resources of its services centers in the US and those in neighboring markets.
Intertec International’s strength in agile software development and FPT Software’s ability to advise and deploy technology solutions and services will help lay a solid foundation for their commitment to bringing quality service experiences for customers in the English-speaking market and in the US.
Together with FPT Software’s newly-established production center in Costa Rica in early 2021, the two firms can cut through cultural and time-zone barriers between US customers and production centers outside the continent, saving up to 30% on operating costs.
Intertec International will also gain competitive advantages from the resonance of FPT Software’s resources, including platforms, infrastructure, and proprietary technology developed by FPT Software, with a network of 22 service centers worldwide.
Costa Rica and Colombia are attractive service hubs and renowned outsourcing destinations in the LATAM region.
FPT Americas CEO Dang Tran Phuong said: “With the combination of the region’s geographical advantages, business-friendly government policies, our digital solutions, and both companies’ technical know-how, we aim to assist more customers at an accelerated speed while saving costs.”
