Indianapolis, IN (Vocus) July 1, 2009
Consona Corporation, a worldwide leader in providing customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and services for companies of all sizes, today announces the success of customers in Europe, North America, and China to expand international operations, particularly in the Chinese market, due to recently expanded operations by Consona and implementation of customer focus strategy to directly support these initiatives.
"Even though China has been affected by the worldwide economic pressures, our customers have made significant progress in their ERP systems," said Rachel Lou, sales manager for Consona China. "They have utilized their system usage to improve efficiency, and they also have invested in new systems for key facilities. The Consona team is delighted to support their efforts with our expanded services operations in Shanghai, SuZhou, Hong Kong and Shenzhen."
One successful customer, Founder PCB Development Limited, is a fabricator of printed circuit boards (PCB) specializing in multilayer PCB, FPC, HDI and ChipCarries. They currently expanded the use of Cimnet Systems ERP software , a Consona solution, to five facilities in China last year. And this year, they are expanding their usage to an additional new site in Chongqing.
A new customer, Sol-Lite Manufacturing Co., Ltd., based in Hong Kong, operates a 5,000 square meter production facility with over 400 workers in Shenzhen. Since 1989, Sol-Lite has specialized in the solar consumer business and gathered exceptional experience and know-how in the solar powering of DC low voltage devices. They chose to implement Intuitive ERP , a Consona solution, to successfully meet their current and growing needs in the rapidly expanding solar power industry.
In the European market, AT&S, Europe's number-one producer of PCBs, is committed to customer service, business process optimization and growth. In pursuit of this goal, AT&S is now at the final stage of going live with Cimnet Systems Front-End Engineering software, a Consona product, in China and Austria. The system integrates incoming processes and data seamlessly so that they can engineer products consistently, accurately and optimally across multiple facilities, producing single, double-sided, and multilayer printed circuit boards.
Mehul Dave, Acting managing director, Consona China and Consona ERP vice president of international operations said. "Today, over 100 of our customers with international operations are looking beyond the current economic challenges and making strategic investments in their businesses. Last year, we had a great opportunity to expand our direct operations in China by acquiring two of our business partners," said Dave. "As part of those agreements, we gained many of the software professionals from those firms enabling us to provide the product and implementation expertise needed to make our customers successful in those markets."
Dave also added, "Consona's R&D commitment to Intuitive, the first ERP system with a complete .NET framework, and Cimnet Systems, the worldwide leader in PCB engineering and fabrication, will enable customers to continue expansion."
"At Consona, we focus on our customer base for determining product direction and investment. Many of customers in North America and Europe have Chinese operations, so it is an important region for us to serve," said Scott Malia, general manager of Consona's ERP division. "These firms represent all our customers in their business commitment and resourcefulness. We look forward to future growth opportunities with them."
