Mar 2006, Intentia China: Intentia, the world’s fourth largest enterprise solution provider in ERP market, has formed a new partnership for mainland China with Sandz Solutions (China) Ltd., the subsidiary company of Sandz (Singapore) Pte Ltd., a clear leader in the fields of digital media, enterprise storage and performance computing.

“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to work with Intentia in China,” said Mr. Lawrence, General Manager, SANDZ Solutions (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. “We used to focus more on hardware solutions and now we pursue the professional service to help enterprises with a total solution combined hardware with a more important service——management consulting. China is a key strategic growth market for SANDZ, and our partnership with Intentia will enhance our solution offerings to both our existing and future customers. ”

The partnership announcement follows the new operational plan communicated in August 2004 by Intentia CEO, Bertrand Sciard. Under the plan, Intentia will improve sales by adding to its current direct sales model, with the inclusion of a partnering strategy to distribute the Intentia enterprise solutions throughout Greater China, Asia South, Japan and Korea.

“China is a huge market and one of the fastest growing countries in the world,” said Mr. Shane Cummings, Regional Director of Greater China and South Asia, “We used to exploit the whole market by the principle of ‘one-stop’ service, but later, we found the market extremely huge, so to cooperate with a professional solution provider is a key strategy for China market’s development.”

Focusing on key industries such as fashion, food and beverage, maintenance, distribution, and service and rental, the company will look towards aligning its new and existing partners with industries and geographies for which they dominate. Its new partner strategy aims to equip its partners with in-depth industry knowledge and proficient sales and service support skills. A 37-day-knowledge training courses was designed for all China’s partners ranging from sales, consultants and engineers. These factors will help the company extend its market coverage for its key industry focus and remain competitive.

”We are very delighted to have Sandz in China,” said Mr. John Li, General Manager, Intentia China, “through this important partner strategy, Sandz and Intentia will be able to deliver world-leading solutions for companies that make, move and maintain goods in China. This partnership is a powerful combination for resource constrained manufacturing and distribution companies with complex business requirements. The partnership with Sandz is a perfect fit into our growth strategy in China as well as in the whole world.”

“We focus on providing the most valuable solutions to more customers. And one of our expansion strategies is to build up more business teams here, with quality solutions that provide return on investment.
