The Apacer gaming series will debut for the greater Chinese market this year to introduce exceptional performance with personal identity designed specifically for the gamers. Gamers can expect higher standards in performance, graphics, and cooling solutions in a whole new package.
III. Comforming to Mobile Devices
The wide spread popularity of mobile devices around the world has also greatly driven the demand for peripheral products in consumers. Apacer is introducing the practical and fashionable peripheral product series for the consumers to reveal personal taste. Recent development in wireless charging is leading way for manufactures of electric vehicles, game consoles, and consumer electronics to introduce the technology into their products, and mobile device makers are of no exception. Apacer recognizes the potential in wireless charging and will be debuting the series of products and applications for this emerging market. Consumers will soon be living the “wireless” smart lifestyle powered by Apacer.
IV. Cloud Integration
The Internet-of-things (IoT) is going to massively drive up computing and storage solutions, while the industry is merely tailing the market into the cloud, data centers, servers, and other related applications. With its forward-thinking strategy, Apacer offers highly-integrated cloud storage solutions with a focus on niche applications to develop selected markets, well ahead of the competition into the cloud solutions.
Sustainable Corporate Growth Built on Talent Supply Chain
Apacer believes that employees are the most important asset of a corporation and the key to sustainability. Starting from 2015, Apacer initiated the talent supply chain system based on positions and required core competence. Talent development is now closely linked to the strategic goals of the organization to lay a good foundation for sustainable development. Assessment tools are introduced in the process of recruitment, training, performance evaluation, promotion and job assignment to establish a precise talent database to meet the demand of future growth. Furthermore, Apacer will continue to rotate management level personnel to challenge professional managers with more market opportunities and broader platforms for growth and innovation.
