What does 4U Systems do, and what services do they provide？
4U is an IT systems solution provider established in China. We provide services including system design, technical consulting, project implementation, system operation and maintenance, and new technology application.
When was 4U Systems created, and why did you decide to start the business?
4U Systems was established in 2006, based on a market analysis we made at the time. In order to occupy the Chinese market and expand their influence, European and American multinational corporations and government agencies continue to increase investment in China to expand, and as part of that they hope to find international professional IT services. That’s where 4U Systems fits in.
How has the company changed in the past 12 years (from the first customer until today)?
When the company was established, 4U identified a very clear market target/customer group - top Fortune500 companies, market and technology leaders, and high-end customers. The company has built a complete international service team, including excellent market development staff. So far, we have worked with close to 150 high-quality customers. Our target customer group has evolved over the past 12 years (due to issues such as the 2008 financial crisis) - we started to invest more resources in pharmaceuticals, education, high-tech industries, and gradually expanded beyond the financial industry & traditional manufacturing customers, but our target customers are always the leaders of their industries.
What makes 4U Systems better than other IT companies in China, and why should MNC companies consider 4U for their projects?
4U always upholds quality of service as our first priority - from design documents to construction quality, from the IT infrastructure to the application of new technologies, we have stringent standards and have impressed many customers because of this;
4U has the best project management teams – they follow international standards, are rigorous, experienced, creative and are familiar with Chinese and Western cultures;
4U has a core technology team with comprehensive knowledge – able to cover most IT subsystems, and has a good understanding of the division of labour and cooperation, and is good at learning (including learning feedback and insights from customers);
