Let’s go back to the year 2005…..
China implemented new system called e-Hub which will allow Chinese manufactures a way to exchange information with international customers and suppliers. Global eXChange Services and ChinaECNet will jointly developed this system. This helped improve the Chinese market in material management efficiency and help detail with the challenges the Chinese’s electronic global market. This B2B platform is based RosettNET. RosettNET is a self-funded non-profit organization which specializes in electronic components and whom are in the process of creating open e-business standards and XML-based technology. RosettNET and XML make sure interoperability with other trading communities.
This system made it easier, faster, and cheaper for multi-national companies to integrate with thousands of small and mid size enterprises, suppliers, and distributors. Toby Redshaw who is the Chairman of RosettNET, says that eHub will give a competitive edge to eHub user’s and to China’s general market. Motorola was one of the first companies to use this system. Using eHub Motorola was able to rapidly onboard China-based trading partner to achieve tighter synchronization and visibility across China’s end to end supply chain, which resulted in improved operational and financial opportunities.
….9 years later, Lenovo buys Motorola.
