Seeing great opportunity in Thailand′s ERP market, Ares worked with DataOne Asia, in introducing “ArgoERP”, an easy and efficient business process software, to Thai market to establish Thailand as a hub to further expand into ASEAN markets.

Lin said that ERP is Oracle-based software and is highly reputable for its data security and system design. ArgoERP was designed in Asia but with international concepts – high flexibility and customization. Enterprise can change the parameters to best match organizational needs. ArgoERP′s full functions were researched and developed to directly address specific demands of enterprises and legal requirement in local markets, including ASEAN. It is therefore easy for IT managers to successfully implement the system and at affordable costs. At the same time, enterprises, especially medium and large scale enterprises, can be assured that they have the right ERP that will effectively fuel their business.

Adisorn Kaewbucha, CEO of DataOne Asia, said that DataOne Asia offered three main product and service offerings – hardware sales, product distribution to partners, and outsourcing service. As part of its product portfolio expansion, DataOne Asia has added ArgoERP to its ERP offerings as it sees a great opportunity for growth in this segment. The company first introduced the software in SVOA Public Company Limited and its subsidiaries to accumulate its team′s expertise and experience in system implantation, problem solving and consultation. This will also help the company gain greater confidence among its customers.

According to Adisorn, Thailand is the largest IT market in Southeast Asia considering continual and more investment from leading international companies, which make Thailand their hubs for production and businesses. Half of the IT market value is dominated by imported software, including ERP, which totaled US$27 million in 2014 and is expected to reach US$90 million in 2017, representing 10%-17% growth per annum.

Lin explained, to better understand local market needs and deliver the best possible products in Thailand, Ares has worked closely with SVOA, a leading Thai IT distributor, and DataOne Asia, a SVOA subsidiary. SVOA offers IT service and retail, factoring and leasing services and a large network of 16 branches, over 2,000 agents, and the largest service center network across Thailand. Meanwhile, DataOne Asia, is specialized in providing corporate IT solution. By combining strengths of the three partners, they can deliver efficient IT solutions that are customized for Thai customers and prevent possible problems related to compliance and legal requirements which differ from country to country and limitation related to translation into different languages.

More importantly, Ares can answer customers′ need in this mobility era by combining Argo Portal with e-ARGO, a Cloud-based function that enables enterprises to have easy access to data and information regardless of time and places. This feature enables enterprises to see and grab any business opportunity presented to them. ArgoERP has been continually improved to best address the changing business environment, Adisorn noted.

Lin expressed that Ares will stay focused on Southeast Asia′s software market, hoping to take the preemptive opportunities and grasp the initiative situation in the market, to assist Thai enterprise to overcome the challenges.
