While many companies advocate ‘Cross Borders’ solutions, we are more in favour of a direct presence in China because the Chinese consumer needs to be served in his/her own language and should be able to have a customer service always available. We are different from many others ‘digital agency’ in that we are a digital sales provider, in fact, we not only make sure that your brand and your products are perfectly blended in the Chinese world but we also provide local operations. In this way, you have one single partner which can cover the entire spectrum of the digital operations in China. For more information please download our Presentation
