Retail Solutions Becomes Part of USTC's Internship Foundation Program; Expects to Leverage this Program to Grow its Chinese Development Operations

USTC's education is a perfect fit for our company

Retail Solutions Inc., the leading solution provider helping consumer product goods (CPG) companies create value with retailer data, today announced it has been endorsed by the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) as a participant in its Internship Foundation program.

"I am delighted to have Retail Solutions join our Internship Foundation program," said LiuSheng Huang, president, USTC graduate school. "Retail Solutions will offer USTC students a great way to gain practical experience with leading edge software-as-a-service technology and exposure to a solution set in use at most of the largest consumer goods companies in the world."

USTC's education requires all students to successfully complete an entire year internship with one of the companies participating in its Internship Foundation program. As a participant in this program, Retail Solutions will be able to hire from one of the best student talent pools in the Shanghai area.

"USTC's education is a perfect fit for our company," said David Sun, director of engineering, China, Retail Solutions. "Since the official opening of our Retail Solutions' Chinese subsidiary in April 2008, we have already grown our staff from 14 to 19 employees. Through this program we can successfully address Retail Solutions' challenge of fast growth, by hiring qualified students with the opportunity to transition them into full-time employees once the internship is completed."

"This relationship between Retail Solutions will provide USTC students with the right practical experience to complement their education - rather than theoretical internships in large research centers," added Professor GuoLiang Chen, member of the China Academy of Science and chairman of the National High Performance Computing Center of China (NHPCC). "I also look forward to Retail Solutions' contribution to the NHPCC research programs in the areas of massive data processing."
