EARLY DAYS OF PORT CITIES
Port Cities has been operating in the Asian market since 1997, focusing mostly on business process consulting & helping to make our clients' businesses more efficient. With the fast growth of the ERP industry & technologies, we started to deliver more & more IT solutions to our clients.
During that time, Odoo was born in Belgium (by that time, it was called TinyERP, then OpenERP and finally renamed to Odoo in 2014).
During the same year, we started our first Odoo implementations for our clients, as well as expanded. In 2014, we opened a local branch in Indonesia and after a huge success of this branch, we started operations in Malaysia (2017), Vietnam (2018), Singapore, Australia & Americas (2019), the UK & Colombia (2020), France (2021). and Thailand (2022).
OUR VISION & GOALS
IT systems done the right way is our vision and motto which drives us every single day. We are striving to help various-sized businesses to design & implement the IT system based on their needs, so they can fully focus on their core business and grow further.
We focus on implementations of the ERP system Odoo, as we believe that this solution is a very unique, flexible, scalable & smart one. With this idea in mind, we set out a mission to become the best & biggest Odoo partner & implementer worldwide.
