“It is a great honor for FPT Software to become Panasonic ITS’ best partner. This award opens the opportunities for us to promote our image to other subsidiaries of Panasonic Corporation and affirms our position as enterprises’ trusted partner in the turbulent time”, said FPT Software’s SVP, Head of Automotive & Manufacturing Verticals Nguyen Duc Kinh.
FPT Software has been partnering with PITS for six years straight. From taking over challenging projects to providing tailor-made CAN (Car Area Network) solution, FPT Software has helped PITS drastically reduce operational cost and enhance its prestige with customers through several successful projects. In the time of COVID-19, the company is evaluated the fastest-responding one among PITS’ vendors. While other vendors failed to keep up with progress due to pandemic impacts, FPT Software still maintains its progress and productivity despite work-from-home period. PITS, therefore, handed over more complicated components and technologies for In-vehicle infotainment system to FPT Software. Vietnam’s leading IT service provider has delivered results with comparable quality.
