On July 14th, 2022, the SEPT Competence Center team from Leipzig University (Germany), in collaboration with the Hanoi University of Science and Technology, hosted the IntVET Symposium: International Partnerships and Business Models in the Vietnamese VET Sectors.

IntVET is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The project investigates relevant success factors of international business models for the export of vocational education training to Vietnam. IntVET will contribute to exploring the factors that dictate successful business models of VET (Vocational Education and Training) providers in an international context.

Among the 40 participants from Germany and Vietnam who attended the event, 18 of which were high-profile VET (Vocational Education and Training) providers found alliance with each other, opening more commercial and partnership opportunities for the Vietnamese-German VET field in the future.

DIGI-CONNECT was presented as an online training platform, including a learning management system (LMS) and a recruitment platform (especially for the BPO industry). This e-learning platform facilitates the remote training process, arms the beneficiaries with essential BPO skills, and creates jobs for marginalized groups.

ABOUT DIGI-CONNECT:

DIGI-CONNECT is a project co-funded by the German Investment Corporation (DEG) and DIGI-TEXX, managed by the non-profit organization – ASSIST Vietnam since 2020, driving to resolve the lack of trained employees in the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry.

The project creates job opportunities for marginalized groups in rural Vietnam who are in need of employment. The targeted groups of the DIGI-CONNECT project are women, persons with disabilities, and unemployed youths.

Once graduated, the beneficiaries will gain the fundamental skills required to work in the IT/BPO industry, arming them with the necessary qualifications to be employed by either DIGI-TEXX or other companies within the industry.

DIGI-CONNECT ACHIEVEMENTS SINCE 2020

We believe DIGI-CONNECT and our other future CSR projects will bridge the gap between recruiting and training disadvantaged individuals for employment, creating a fair environment for marginalized groups in Vietnam.

Meet Mr. Thomas Hofmaier – Shareholder of DIGI-TEXX VIETNAM

In March 2022, Vietnam fully reopened to international flights. Travel restrictions from the Covid-19 pandemic have been removed, and DIGI-TEXX’s team finally reunited with Mr. Thomas Hofmaier – one of our shareholders from Munich, Germany. DIGI-TEXX spoke to Mr. Thomas about his thoughts on coming back after two years and the BPO position in the coming time.

Mr. Thomas Hofmaier – Shareholder of DIGI-TEXX Vietnam

What was your first impression when visiting Vietnam and DIGI-TEXX Vietnam after two years of isolation due to Covid-19?

I was very excited to travel back to Vietnam after 25 months and delighted to reunite with all the people I had first met in the last 16 years. It started from the welcome of the familiar hotel driver at the airport to the bustling streets of Ho Chi Minh City. I’m impressed with Vietnam’s resilient and quick recovery from the pandemic.

Everyone at DIGI-TEXX has remained the same positive and energetic spirit. The people grow individually during the pandemic even though they have faced many internal challenges in their working and personal lives. 

How do you see the company changing in the last two years?

The pandemic was definitely a challenge and an opportunity for DIGI-TEXX to grow. I see we are transiting more on the digital path under the leadership of Mr. Thoai Nguyen – our Chief Digital Officer. We launched DIGI-XTRACT to bring intelligent document processing closer to our clients. To improvise with the pandemic, DIGI-TEXX has established a highly secured online working platform – DIGI-Connect, to support and extend crowdsource working models. In the meantime, we maintain our highest commitment to all worldwide clients. 

As a company specializing in providing Digital Solutions and BPO services adopting technologies for more automation, how do you see the role of people in this transformation journey?

I believe everyone is invited to join this journey, and there is more and more work to do in this digital transformation era. BPO used to be stereotyped as works associated with simple data entry or nine-to-five jobs. In this modern-day, especially at DIGI-TEXX, BPO requires complex skills such as data evaluation and analysis skills to guarantee and improve data-driven decision-making for our clients. As a result, DIGI-TEXX’s employees have been trained to reach higher skills that meet our advanced BPO requirements.

Many people think that BPO will no longer continue its development in the coming years. Could you share your view about this?

BPO is definitely continuing its critical position, shifting into a new form, empowered by solid and high-end technologies that we define as technology BPO. By moving from paper-based to digital documents, BPO has changed its direction into providing digital transformation to clients, using web applications and services to approach our clients’ needs.

BPO is getting more complex and modernized to fulfill the global demand for digital transformation, and DIGI-TEXX believes we will witness exquisite growth in this field from this point forward.

Any messages you want to send to all DIGI-TEXX’s staff?

First of all, I would like to thank all DIGI-TEXX employees, particularly our frontline employees during the lockdown. Your commitment and discipline are critical to maintaining our business continuity.

I would like to express how proud I am of you as a united team and family for making DIGI-TEXX  such a great company and an enjoyable place to work.

Finally, I would like to send my warmest thoughts to any of you who have been affected by this disease and wish you a fast recovery.

Thomas Hofmaier – shareholder of DIGI-TEXX VIETNAM

Thomas joined DIGI-TEXX as one of our shareholders in 2007. He has brought his 29 year-experience and innovative spirit in BPO and digital transformation that advances DIGI-TEXX to become a successful offshore BPO and digital service provider. Currently, Thomas is an advisor supporting DIGI-TEXX to deliver excellent services for clients in the Banking, Insurance, and Healthcare industries.
