Global Orient advisors
Strategic Advisory

Global Orient provided these services for a start-up Asian anti-spam service provider based in Hong Kong. We undertook to generate and validate the business and financial plans, raise the seed capital and we are providing ongoing Advisory services during the first two years of operations. Within a few months of launching, this service provider acquired PCCW as an anchor customer.

Strategic Advisory

For a client we undertook extensive due diligence in Asia of existing wireless broadband operators and vendors, including WiFi and WiMax and other fixed and nomadic broadband wireless technologies. During this project we developed an excellent grasp of the current competitive landscape. Global Orient also advised on making an investment into one of the wireless vendors and assisted this vendor with defining their initial China market entry strategy

Business Concierge

Global Orient is currently providing these services to a New Zealand based provider of IP traffic analysis appliances targeted at carrier grade and corporate IP networks. The appliance protects the integrity of these networks. We have evaluated and recommended partners for Hong Kong and other target Asian markets already resulting in sales conversion and revenue. During August 2004, Global Orient secured a contract with PCCW for this client which was the single largest value order that our client had ever won to date.

Business Concierge

Global Orient provided business concierge service to a Taiwan TFT LCD colour display manufacturer that was seeking retail outlets in the Pearl River Delta during March 2003. Global Orient recommended that besides direct selling to mobile phone or PDA manufacturers, services centres of mobile phones should be targeted. Global Orient lined up with a communication equipment supplier in PanYu and successfully helped this Taiwan manufacturer step into a new area, and it was reported that the sales in this area had a 50% increase in sales volume in last 10 months.

Business Concierge

The team is currently working with a Singaporean based mobile applications company to bring their award winning applications to Hong Kong. During the client's initial two-day visit to Hong Kong, we introduced them to five out of six potential partners, all of whom have shown keen interest leading them to sign up trial agreements for the products. The client is so pleased with Global Orient that they have already engaged us in discussions on engagement in other markets.
