Question posted by Peter Murray, on behalf of Computersoft in PE14

We have our own low priced Branded Office Suite Software that's Windows and all file formats compatible, that is in Chinese Traditional and Simplified and English in one Package so user's can switch.

In China and the other countries that use Chinese how do volume PC & Notebooks sales, also software dealers source and purchase their software supplies for computers they sell?

Hi Peter,

In Hong Kong where simplified Chinese is used, volume PCs and notebooks are generally sold with an upgrade option to include software such as Microsoft Office. The software bundled should be on an OEM licence basis whereby manufacturers bulk purchase licences and have them installed on PCs and notebooks based on clients' requirements.

Software dealers here generally purchase boxed software from their local distributors as most leading software brands do have their own established distribution channel in Hong Kong.

I hope the above helps.

Best regards,

Patrick

Peter,

I am not aware of any online trade magazines relating to the computer industry in Hong Kong. Below are some ICT related magazines which may be of interest. Some of them do have limited online content but unfortunately all are in local language. However, you may still wish to take a look at their website to see if they are applicable.

ITPRO (www.itpromag.com) - aiming at ICT professionals
e-zone (www.e-zone.com.hk) - a mass market consumer ICT magazine
PC Market (http://pcm.my-magazine.me/main/) - similar to e-zone but with more focus on PCs

Hong Kong has Yellow Pages but I am not sure if this will provide an effective channel to market your applications.

Best regards,

Patrick
