pace of development and future business expansion needs.

overall cost of ownership is minimized," said Chen Yabing, General Manager of

cost is a key factor for enterprises to consider. The Infor interface is also
user-friendly. After streamlining the entire business process, the degree of
information flow within the company has improved, with quick information processing,
and more accurate feedback. Huida built our ERP system into the core of the
information system of the entire group, through which the upstream and
downstream supply chain is connected, so that the management of the enterprise is
more accurate and comprehensive."

continue to streamline outdated operational models that have slowed them down due
to old management tools. The company plans to build out an ERP system that will
