ABLECOM’s organizational structure is also designed to meet the needs of its customers. With more than a decade of product designing experience in the server industry, ABLECOM provides a one-stop seamless service system, covering R&D, designing, sample, validation, molding, production, customer delivery, and performing full project planning for all levels of the service chain. Hence, ABLECOM’s business scope has expanded to beyond the IT server market. General Manager Leung, expressed, “Our strategy is to be highly efficient, emphasizing supply chain management with horizontal division of work. For example, when we wanted to simplify our processes and equipment, we tried to integrate the equipment models that we invested and managed on our production lines. This allowed our standard operating environment to be more consistent so that all of the operating systems and common communication software and hardware could be unified. This also established standard operating procedures so that a common language is spoken from the front-end RD personnel that receive the design orders to the back-end staff that support production and delivery. In addition, the establishment of standard operating procedures simplifies the complexity of maintenance costs, which naturally will enhance our ability to develop new business by being able to achieve rapid DOD (Design-on-Demand)."
With the fierce competition in today’s industry trends, the rules in the product market are constantly being redefined. Computer computing devices are no longer limited to its original single structure; many products have turned from being highly homogeneous into specialized devices with multiple applications or highly function-oriented. Therefore, ABLECOM emphasizes innovative process integration services, reducing process duplication, and effectively reducing errors, which helps improve efficiency. The company also works hard to meet customer’s demand for simple hardware products in the market and provides products and services that are even more customized to the customer’s needs. ABLECOM’s DOD (Design-on-Demand) strategy also offers a number of supply chain vendors for customers to choose from, giving customers greater flexibility and choice in their product planning, and assisting customers with the products needed for them to achieve their target market.
In addition, ABLECOM not only utilizes DOD (Design-on-Demand) to help customers got a hold on the rapidly changing market, but also has established an Asia Pacific manufacturing operations base, which will have a sample center, molding, plastic molding and metal chassis manufacturing capacity. The base will begin output as soon as 2012 and its One-Stop-Shopping advantages will certainly help reduce costs and improve quality. With the expansion and deepening of product services and contents, ABLECOM’s introduction of its seamless process has enabled the company to provide customers with products and services that have reached global standards in both innovation and quality, from the initial product concept design, mass production to after-sales service. Moreover, by sharing and increasing the percentage of re-used modules, the development costs between ABLECOM and its customers can be effectively reduced, giving customers a differentiated competitive advantage, shortening the product’s time to market and reducing costs. This is not only a win-win situation for ABLECOM and its customers, but also makes ABLECOM a successful business partner and at the same time significantly increases its ODM competitiveness in the global computing platform market.
