SPEAKER: ALANAhiSoft has a long and unique history compared to most Chinese IT outsourcing firms. We actually got our start working with large Japanese clients almost 14 years ago. It was a difficult way to begin … I’m sure you can appreciate how demanding Japanese customers can be … but early on it forced us to adopt a disciplined engineering model. That focus on quality and security excellence was quickly noticed by global giants like Microsoft and GE who were very early entrants into China, and our client base soon extended from Japan to the US and Europe. Today, hiSoft is by far THE MOST internationally experienced of the Chinese ITO firms, which combined with our deep Chinese roots, provides a unique value to both our global clients and our expanding Chinese customer base, who are now also seeking to drive their business globally. We have often been THE FIRST Chinese ITO to be recognized by global analyst and professional associations, as well as to adopt critical quality and security standards. We also follow global business practices such as compliance with US GAAP and ITIL standards, which includes the method by which we report revenue and full time employee numbers. With hiSoft you can count on what we claim to be true.
