Visiting China in 2014
On April 12, 2014, the representatives attended «China Information Technology Expo 2014» exhibition in Shenzhen, China. The purpose was to get to know and to analyze Chinese software and business-processes automation market.
An important acquaintance took place during the exhibition: “Millennium Institute” found new potential partners which are Chinese companies “YouYou” and “Tencent”. They have been on the market with their products – business-processes automation and software – for a long time and appear to be the strongest businesses in the field.
The exhibition was conducted on large premises which amazed participants and quests. Its level met the highest international requirements.
On April 15, 2014, the “Millennium Institute” specialists participated in another exhibition, «China Import and Export Fair», held in Guangzhou, China. The company presented its major products and services: business- processes automation and software (“1C” application with Chinese interface).
It is important to admit that particularly collaboration with “APR Group” (Moscow- Guangzhou) made it possible for “Millennium Institute” to exploit its software and IT-services on Chinese market. “APR Group” is planning on developing a network of dealers for selling “1C” software with official localization into Chinese language, accomplished by the “Millennium Institute” specialists, by the end of 2014.
Russian companies have already had an experience of translating “1C” Enterprise 8” into Chinese, but have not achieved positive results yet. At the same time, the demand for automation software on Chinese market is growing, and Russian-Chinese relationships have just started developing.
The representatives of Chinese companies showed great deal of interest in “Enterprise Managing” and “Business Administration” applications. Of course, Chinese users need time to master “1C” application. That is why “Millennium Institute” company and “APR Group”, which have many years of experience in the field, are planning on using training courses in Chinese, developed for this particular purpose , as well as specific technological methods and solutions.
There were several Russian companies which came to China to conduct their businesses. “Millennium Institute” signed several contracts for its services.
The core idea in localization of “1C” into Chinese is establishing mutual understanding between Russian and Chinese organizations and developing complex automation of their activities.
