"Our commitment to the development and sustainability of Hong Kong business is matched by the dedication of Microsoft of Hong Kong," said Dr Richard Fung, Associate Professor of MEEM, and Director of the E-KIT Laboratory. "Our students will also benefit from the programme."
Under the collaboration plan, a three-day free feasibility service will be offered to interested local firms. Microsoft will donate the relevant free software, and provide technical support. MEEM students will contribute by assisting in feasibility studies for local SMEs. The experience will provide them with case studies for their final year projects and dissertations."This initiative is the latest in our ongoing engagement with Hong Kong's top academic institutions," said Ms Yolanda Chan, Chief Marketing Director of Microsoft Hong Kong. "As part of our drive to ensure local SMEs can access the most advanced technologies, we now have the privilege of working with CityU in creating a programme critical to the success of local manufacturing." "We are very impressed with the solution, which helps us to facilitate faster business processes and response to customers," said Mr Victor Lo, Vice President of Honeywell. "With the help from the E-Kit Lab and Microsoft, now we do not need to spend millions on complex software and high-priced consultants in the move towards B2B e-Commerce."
