WORKS APPLICATIONS CHINA Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shanghai, China; Chairman: Tadashi Ikarugi; hereinafter "WAP China"), today announced that its next generation enterprise productivity software, AI WORKS, will be debuting in China at "AI WORKS Innovation Tour in Shanghai" on Friday, March 11th, 2016.
Challenge to Transfer Knowhow to Local Chinese Employees
Growing economic development makes China one of the most important market for Japanese corporations. Training and retaining local Chinese talent is crucial for the business expansion of Japanese corporations. Unlike Japan however, China has a high employee turnover rate therefore making it challenging to transfer knowhow and grow the local operations for Japanese corporations.
"AI WORKS Innovation Tour in Shanghai"
To help Japanese companies with operations in China tackle this problem, WAP is organizing "AI WORKS Innovation Tour in Shanghai" on Friday March 11, 2016 with the theme "Bringing All Employees to Top Performance". WAP will be unveiling its next generation enterprise productivity software "AI WORKS" to the Chinese market for the first time at the seminar.
