About Port Cities


Port Cities started its operations back in 1997 in Hong Kong, and from that time, opened 8 new branches in 5 countries (Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Mexico and Australia).


Today, Port Cities is one of the strongest Odoo partners in Southeast Asia with more than 80 successful implementations and more than 100 Odoo professionals under one roof.

Now we will reveal a story of a Vietnamese expansion and their first steps to its successful establishment.

First steps - Odoo Roadshow in Ho Chi Minh City

An amazing opportunity for entering a new market is the annual Odoo Roadshow. It is an event organized by Odoo and their partners to present the latest version of the system and its benefits, as well as to provide space for networking among business owners, company representatives and Odoo partners.


This event kick-started the operations of Port Cities in Vietnam and connected them with businesses in need of a suitable ERP system - Odoo. From this day, the team of Port Cities in Vietnam has been working to raise awareness about smart business management applications and helping Vietnamese companies grow by automating their business processes.


Keeping up with new trends - The 1st Odoo 12 implementation in Vietnam

Every new edition of Odoo brings amazing innovations, functionalities and upgrades. Odoo 12 was no exception - new modules (Document Management, Internet of Things) were introduced, as well as useful upgrades for almost every module from earlier versions.

IT SYSTEMS DONE THE RIGHT WAY is the motto of Port Cities Vietnam, and implementing the newest, fastest and most advanced version of Odoo matches their vision well.

Just one month after the new version was released, Port Cities was the first partner to deploy Odoo 12 Enterprise system in Vietnam.


Today, half a year after the release of version 12, there are 5 clients with successfully deployed Odoo 12 working with Port Cities and more are ready to join them within the upcoming weeks.

Quality matters - First certified Odoo partner in Vietnam


To ensure the quality of consulting and implementation services, Odoo challenges the partners to constantly raise the level of their knowledge and understanding of the system. To bring this idea to life, Odoo started to certify those partners, by having them pass the Odoo functional knowledge examination.

Even though Port Cities is a very young Odoo partner in Vietnam, the experience of a multinational company, well-trained project managers and strong vision to deploy IT systems the right way, drove them to obtain the Odoo functional certifications as soon as possible. In February, 2 Port Citizens became the first certified Odoo 12 experts in Vietnam, and more are getting ready for the examinations.

Silver Odoo partner in 7 months


Combination of quality-driven mindset and successful deployment of 4 Odoo Enterprise systems made Port Cities a Silver Odoo partner in just 7 months  after the establishment of their branch in Vietnam.

But this is just part of the transformation period - the team is motivated to become a Gold Odoo partner for Vietnam within this calendar year.

Such a fast growth is possible because Port Cities is a multinational group of companies, that shares knowledge, Odoo experts, experience and best case practices. Moreover, all the branches closely cooperate to provide the best consultation and implementation services to businesses and organizations of all sizes - in the past, Port Cities deployed IT systems for giants like Paragon Innovation and Technologies, AEON, and for SKK Migas, an Indonesian governmental organization.
