    Our Approach
    • S-dev performs our work through careful teaming arrangements that allow us to leverage the unique skills and capabilities of our international and local staff, consultants, and outsourcing in order to give excellent service to our clients at a reasonable price. Our core team and affiliated consultants represent a broad spectrum of expertise including business education (various specialties), management, economics, engineering, project management, construction, public administration, agriculture, and mathematics.

    • In 2011 Sdev launched a sister company, South East Asia Development Company, Limited, (Seadev) in Vietnam.

Our companies work together closely to provide localized services for our South East Asian clients, and price and efficiency advantages for our global clients. In 2012 we launched our Social Media Services Department.
