|Digital Products Burn-Hot, Arcadyan turns from Loss into Gain Parent Company Accton—Inventory Down to 1.8 Billion—Lift of Turnover Rate|
Hsinchu, Taiwan - As worldwide companies gallantly come to Taiwan in droves competing in the market battles of WLAN technology and digital appliances, Arcadyan Technology Corporation's prospective techniques has been approved by an international leading corporation. Within the coming one year, Arcadyan will develop PVR (Personal Video Recorder), DVD access devices (Digital Video Disk) as well as brand-new wireless integrated products and will begin mass production next year. Arcadyan will surely be the most sparkling star among rival commodities in intense competition in digital appliances. The leading technology brings cooperation opportunities with several western renowned companies.
New technology and effective management are the most essential factors for a successful corporation. In the initial stage of establishment, Arcadyan efficiently commanded Royal Philips Electronics' surpassing patents on multimedia applications and audio-video appliances. Among networking and communication industry, Arcadyan is the first to enter into these arenas. Moreover, integrated with Accton's WLAN core technology, Arcadyan hence developed new digital WLAN audio-video home appliances.
WLAN ADSL Router is the major profits for Arcadyan in the current stage; estimated one-third of shipment quantity in Taiwan. This Router has won appreciative comments in America, European countries and Japan. Presently, Arcadyan is devoted to developing IAD (Integrated Access Device) combining WLAN and VoIP. The new device has been accredited by worldwide leading companies and will begin shipment in the second-half year.
It is reported that for a long time, Accton adapts "independence of sovereignty" strategy for its subsidiary companies and does not manipulate leverage to control them. Therefore, synergy is rarely carried out; subsidiary companies have to be self-reliant for the profits. However, Accton decided to carve out further victory as Arcadyan took the lead among competitors with steady steps. Accton transferred the Executive Vice-President—Mr. Kuo Fei Long to manage the kernel of Arcadyan—taking care from resource coordination, capital supervision to material & supplies purchase, product development and production management, Mr. Kuo effectively improved the profiting structure only within three months. Arcadyan has begun making profits in July, earlier than the estimation (Q4). Arcadyan turns from loss into gain in Q3 as well; the annual business volume is more than US$ 2 hundred million dollars.
The Parent company Accton is doing brilliantly as well. By raising profits and lowering costs, the inventory has been descended from NT2.6 billion to NT1.8 billion; apparently the turnover rate is on the increase. Such excellent performances out-stand the competitors and lay a foundation for better future. Moreover, Accton is making efforts in developing new products. New Enterprise Access Point will be released soon; it will help raising added-values and become a promising product.
Accton pointed out that it is common for a long-lasting company to experience ups-and-downs in the business cycles. The international market of Enterprise networking equipment is still struggling between rise and fall, which resulting in an inactive business environment. Accton, since devoted to developing and designing for those worldwide leading companies, has been influenced to some extent. Although the market is still looking bad, Accton is willing to work closely with customers (making partnership work) to go through any difficult situation. This is why Accton is one of the international biggest factories; Accton has prepared to help one another at this challenging moment.
Looking to the future, synergy between Accton and Arcadyan, with the methods of highly controlling new technology and running the effective management plus the full supports of international leading companies will help Accton Group to take throne in the popular fields of WLAN networking and digital home appliances. The profits will ladle out tremendous advantages for this corporation as well.
