ELCA founded its offshore subsidiary in Vietnam in 1998. The initial team of six people has grown to become the prosperous production site it is today with more than 200 members of staff. Each year ELCA implements around 70 projects with the involvement of its Vietnamese subsidiary – a number that is steadily increasing.

ELCA - Competencies - Offshoring - Vietnam Corporate

ELCA Vietnam is an extension of the parent company situated in Switzerland to which have been essentially relocated the development, system integration and maintenance activities. ELCA Vietnam has obtained the CMMI Level 3 certification and all its projects are in accordance with the bespoke quality system used in the Swiss company.

ELCA offers its customers two models for collaboration with its Vietnamese subsidiary:

When compared to a project undertaken entirely in Switzerland, the project duration is exactly the same but the customer benefits from savings of around 30% on the total price of the project.

Traditional project – transparency and reduced project costs for the customer

The engineers in Switzerland draw up the specifications in consultation with the customer and decide on the scope for relocating project implementation to Vietnam and to what extent. In the course of the project the personnel from ELCA Vietnam regularly visit their Swiss colleagues and these visits are reciprocated in order to ensure the success of the project.

ELCA Vietnam's involvement is transparent for the customer, bearing in mind that the customer only has contact with the head of the project and his team based in Switzerland, who monitor all phases of the project.

Hiring services – a qualified team at a very competitive price

We also offer our customers a dedicated team of Vietnamese engineers. This form of collaboration involves the customer maintaining direct contact with our Vietnamese engineers and managing their activities. The customer benefits from the technical expertise of ELCA engineers at an extremely competitive price.
