Expanding our horizon

Strategic move to the APAC region gets awarded

One and half years ago, we took another step towards global expansion with an office in Singapore. This strategic step into the Far East enables us to better respond to our customers’ needs, to find optimal solutions for their business, and detect regional market trends early to understand the market and help shape its digital evolution. In December 2021, we were honored with the highest award at the ASEAN Digital Transformation Awards: We are the overall champion in Business Excellence. Kiril Milev, Region Director Middle East and APAC, had the opportunity to ask our CEO Andrej Vckovski a few questions.

Kiril: What’s the importance of the Asia Pacific region for Netcetera?

Andrej: On a scale of 1 to 10, it’s 11. Joke aside, we have an ambitious plan for growing outside of the EU and APAC is a milestone in this global growth strategy. Many countries in the region are the drivers in the digital world, so we fit right in with our cutting-edge digital products and solutions. Being honored with overall Champion in Business Excellence and winner of the Cyber Security category at the ASEAN Digital Transformation awards confirms that we are on the right track.

Kiril: How does our presence in APAC influence our global expansion strategy?

Andrej: Even though we all share one planet, obviously there are many differences in various areas like culture or business contexts. This makes doing business both challenging and enriching. Being present in the APAC region also means that we align with and appreciate these differences.

Kiril: What’s the significance of our partnership with G+D to our endeavors in APAC

Andrej: Our strategic partner Giesecke+Devrient has been in the region for a long time, especially in Australia, where we have a very productive cooperation. We believe that with their established presence and our digital ambition we can provide real benefits to their customer base and jointly create new value propositions that meet the market needs of the region.
