For Andrej Vckovski, CEO of the Netcetera Group, Vienna as Austria's financial and trading center is not only an important market, but also the hub of an area of about nine million people in Austria, encompassing also the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. Quoting Vckovski: "With the location Vienna we strengthen our presence in Austria. In addition, we are setting an exclamation point to the expansion of our international team and to serving other markets internationally with our trend-setting products and individual software, especially in the areas of banking, payment and security". With its three locations Linz, Hagenberg and Vienna, Netcetera has taken the decisive step to expand its market position as a leading player in payment transactions in Austria and Eastern Europe.
Christina Reinbacher, Head of the Swiss Business Hub Austria in Vienna, underlines the cross-national significance in her opening speech: "We welcome and encourage the influx of innovative companies like Netcetera. They are essential for securing the region's economic viability and future."
