The company has established strategic partnerships with leading international software vendors to localize and resell the company’s software products throughout the Asia Pacific region.

In January of 2006, CDC Software expanded its offerings in the on-demand software category by acquiring the assets of JRG, a leading provider of on-demand supply chain planning solutions delivered as Software as a Service (SaaS). The on-demand software category harbors significant growth opportunities for CDC Software and the company will continue to invest in these solutions, both through additional acquisitions and internal R&D projects. In Greater China, CDC Software currently offers a marketing automation product, expresso, for customers such as 3M, Dairy Farm and Harbour Plaza Hotels & Resorts. In addition, in Q2 2006, CDC Software plans to launch its on-demand software program in China by initially offering its popular PowerHRP and expresso products as SaaS solutions. Additional products, including business-to-business market automation and supply chain planning products, will follow. CDC Software will leverage the hosted model of software delivery, particularly in hyper-growth developing geographies and industries, while continuing to provide enterprise software via traditional licenses where it makes sense for specific customer needs.
The company has several IT, web development and business services companies in Hong Kong, Australia, Korea, and the United States. Our business services companies provide program management, outsourcing services, application development and on-going support services using a comprehensive range of technologies.
CDC Software, a wholly owned subsidiary of CDC Corporation, today announced that it has completed the purchase of substantially all the business assets of JRG Software, a leader in on-demand supply chain planning solutions delivered as Software as a Service (SaaS).
The One Plan applications from JRG add complementary on-demand factory planning and scheduling to the CDC Software enterprise suite of industry-leading enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM) and supply chain management applications. CDC Software's products include Ross Systems' ERP and SCM, Pivotal's CRM and IMI's warehouse management and order management solutions.
The addition of One Plan to our current offering of on-demand applications will enable CDC to quickly expand into new market segments and geographies. The company is committed to industry leadership in both the hosted model of software services, particularly in hyper-growth developing markets, and enterprise software via traditional licenses where it is best suited to a particular customer or industry.
JRG's One Plan is an on-demand solution for factory planning and scheduling that combines a highly interactive graphical planning environment with integrated business intelligence to enable the real-time creation, sharing and monitoring of production plans across a manufacturing organization.
With direct alignment in a focus on the food and consumer products industries, and the complementary nature of the solutions, CDC is moving fast to assimilate the One Plan applications, and JRG customers into our company. The JRG customers are already live on our Web-based customer management and support system, which of course, is an application of Pivotal CRM. The company also begun cross-selling its enterprise applications to the JRG customers and One Plan on-demand scheduling applications to a global base of CDC Software customers. In addition, they are expanding their marketing and sales programs to sell the One Plan applications across the process manufacturing industries including pharmaceuticals and chemicals. The One Plan applications have proven to be very effective in food and consumer products, and through the global reach of CDC Software, the company will build on that success to quickly take the lead in on-demand scheduling for process manufacturing overall.
The company is also focused on the mobile applications market in China. The company offers consumer-based and enterprise-based mobile applications services including SMS (Short Message Services), IVR (Interactive Voice Response), MMS (Multimedia Message Service) and WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) in China.
