SINGAPORE, 24 July 2000 - Jardine OneSolution (JOS), a new corporate identity for the IT businesses of Jardine Matheson, was launched on 20 July 2000 in Singapore.
The re-branding underpins JOS' new strategic thrust in the provision of end-to-end IT and e-business solutions and services across the region.
JOS has recently acquired the IT distribution arms of CSA in Singapore and Malaysia, trading under CSA Distribution in both territories, and the system integration and technical services businesses of Fullmark Micro in Singapore.
JOS also announced its acquisition of 100% of the shares in system integrator ProData Computer Systems and majority share in cabling and IT infrastructure provider ProData Technologies, both in Singapore.
Steve Lo, chief executive of Jardine OneSolution, said, "The emergence of e-commerce has profoundly changed the structure of the IT industry. The enlarged market boundaries, the disintegrated industry supply chain and the explosive demand for system integrators are key elements in this new order. All these represent significant opportunities for key industry players such as JOS. I believe that differentiation, added value, strong customer service and brand recognition will be key success factors going forward."
JOS has six core businesses, namely System Integration, Application Solutions, Distribution & Logistics, Technical Services, Consulting & Outsourcing and Customer Relationship Management.
The key focus of JOS' core businesses will be the development of a of e-enabling services, which will include Web design and production, e-commerce applications, data center services and e-business strategy consultancy.
Fred Tan, Jardine OneSolution's group director for Southeast Asia, said that JOS will continue to look for new investment and acquisition targets throughout the region in order to support the long-term growth of the company.
