HÀ NỘI — FLC Group and Viettel have signed a comprehensive co-operation agreement for the 2018-20 period. The deal will help FLC promote the application of IT services in its administration and management.
Under the agreement, Viettel and FLC will co-operate to build and implement common products and services to create a product eco-system to fully tap into the strengths of each party.
Accordingly, Viettel will support FLC in the digital transition process to provide the most convenient experience for customers as well as bring advanced technologies to each unit in the FLC Group.
In addition, Viettel is ready to support FLC in accessing its local market of around 60 million people and 40 million customers in the 11 foreign countries in which the telecom provider has a presence.
Viettel will also integrate FLC’s products and services such as aviation, hotel, entertainment, golf and air ticket distribution through its direct and digital sale channels.
Meanwhile, FLC Group will apply the achievements of Viettel Group in IT and administration such as paperless office (Voffice), Certificate Authority (CA), Sinvoice and Viettel Pay for not only real estate and resorts but also aviation and hi-tech agriculture.
Speaking at the signing ceremony, FLC’s chairman Trịnh Văn Quyết said as the Government had defined a digital economy as one of the key pillars for the country’s economic development, the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) has been both an opportunity and challenge for the business community. Firms should quickly access the newest technologies in their production and administration to develop in the Industry 4.0.
Quyết said FLC hoped that Bamboo Airways would not only connect local routes but also expand to foreign markets. With an orientation to become a five-star airline, FLC has invested heavily in Bamboo Airways, with the signing of several trade contracts worth billions of US dollars as well as co-operating with leading technology and trade partners.
He said big multi-sector firms like FLC needed to co-operate with leading and prestigious technology partners to take opportunities from the digital era.
The chairman expected that the agreement would be a pre-condition for upcoming co-operation between the two groups and their member companies.
Lê Đăng Dũng, Viettel’s general director said Viettel was known as a business specialising in providing telecom services. However, in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution which will have a big effect on all sectors, the group established Viettel Business Solutions Corporation to support enterprises in digital transition.
“Just like FLC, Viettel has both a local and international scope. From that point of view, Viettel considers FLC not only a partner but a companion”, he added.
"Although this is the first time Viettel has worked with a private enterprise, after the meeting today, any barriers or gaps between State-owned and private enterprises have been eliminated," he said.
The general director believed that Vietnamese firms would be successful in digital transition, opening new opportunities for people, companies and the country. — VNS
