Conducting Meetings with Foreign Clients

As a purchasing consultant, author and foreign customers have visited hundreds of companies in different industries and factories all over the country visit and negotiate business, large industry leaders of tens of thousands of employees of large State-owned enterprises, from small private production enterprise of dozens of people. Entertain guests, make the atmosphere congenial business meeting these aspects of nature, trust and propriety Chinese companies could do is put in place. However, during the process of discussion and factory visits, there are some common factors often affect the quality of meetings and customer impressions of the factory -


Is the author of the following individuals in personal experiences summarized in some ideas and maybe wanting to explore foreign markets, inspire development in foreign trade enterprises:


1. Preparation


(1). understanding customer intentions in advance. Before the customers arrive, learn good visit time, number of personnel, positions and meeting to explore content, does the customer have translations, are there any other special requirements, logistical requirements, such as transfers, hotel arrangements, and so on.


(2). access arrangements. After being fully informed of the above information, it should begin as soon as possible the implementation, including computer support personnel, visiting steps, talks about how much time, visited the factory of approximately how much time to the airport or the hotel needs a lot of time to arrange lunch dinner time required, and so on. Arrangement is completed, you can interact with your customers in order to confirm or modify each other.


Although all  are details ,but do these preparations can make meetings more efficient, reduce the waste of time, at the same time, giving clients the impression is very professional, and trustworthy. I've a factory, project manager forgot customer call time, when the customers arrived, he was on leave, and leave without handing over to other colleagues. So you can imagine how impressed customers factory, regardless of how low price, customers will not consider co-operating with the factory.

NetFront Browser and Web 2.0

NetFront Browser and Web 2.0


NetFront Browser is the most advanced, versatile, and powerful Internet browser available in the mobile market. Specifically designed and optimized to deliver high performance in resource-constrained environments, NetFront Browser supports almost any OS and CPU and offers low power consumption, easy customization, and a broad range of plug-ins. NetFront Browser has been deployed in millions of Internet devices throughout the world including mobile phones, digital TVs, set-top boxes, mobile handhelds, game consoles, automobile telematics systems and many other Internet devices.

For complete information on NetFront Browser v3.5 download the PDF brochure.

The NetFront Browser Advantage

Optimized for Mobile
NetFront Browser is the optimized browser solution which offers “Full Internet Experience” for an embedded device, especially mobile devices. NetFront Browser is designed especially for embedded devices to overcome restrictions like CPU speed or memory, and offers best performance and extensive features with a compact code size that is ideally suited for mobile devices than the downsized desktop browser solutions. End-user can experience the same rich Internet Services as a desktop on mobile devices.

Flexible Configuration and Easy Portability
NetFront Browser's highly modular and scalable software architecture enables developers to pick and choose only needed components for their target devices. Should more memory savings be required, modules containing code for unneeded functions can be removed and the code base and memory requirements are reduced. Should new markup support be required, it’s easy to add an additional module. NetFront Browser's high portability is also a key contributor to its popularity in the mobile space. The two key NetFront Browser components that enable this portability are:

  1. SLIM interface, which encapsulates the dependence to the target platform and provides high portability and tightly integration capability for developers.
  2. PWS (Plate Window System)/AWS (Abstract Windows System), the window system API that generalizes and settles the differences in window manipulations from the underlying operating system. In addition, NetFront Browser can incorporate an exhaustive set of low-level libraries including WAVE, ACCESS' own windowing system. This means that NetFront Browser can run on the barest of operating systems. On operating systems that do provide the functionality, such as those found on mobile handhelds, these libraries are simply stripped out so no unnecessary code is deployed.

Key Benefits

For End-Users
Offers the fastest, rich and intuitive, full-Internet browsing experience and services on mobile devices.

For Device Manufacturers
Provides a modularized architecture, easy integration, extensibility, compact footprint, and reliable and proven solution on all major platforms and operating systems.

For Mobile Operators
Introduces quite an extensive and fully customizable data services platform and consistent end-user experience across multiple device types.

For Contents Providers
Contributes a rich contents rendering platform for embedded device.

Highly Customizable UX and Branding Opportunities

With NetFront Browser's modular architecture, the core browser engine which provides the essential functionalities of Web browser such as networking, content rendering is completely independent from the upper application and user-interface layers. This means that the user-interface and application layer can be easily developed or modified to meet particular requirements or customization. It even enables a developer to create the entirely new application based on the same NetFront Browser Technology as being used in all NetFront Browser products. For device manufactures, ensures a differentiated product with minimal engineering effort. For the mobile operator, this means that a monolithic, consistent application user interface can be defined across all types of device. End-users will experience almost identical functionality not only about powerful browsing ability but also about usability regardless of the device used. NetFront Browser supports you to make an attractive device with full Internet experiences.


Adapted for "Web 2.0"
Web 2.0 is the next-generation of the Web and also widely recognized as a next-generation service framework, based on the view of the Web as a platform. Consumers today can experience many innovative Internet services collectively called "Web 2.0 services" which feature rich user-interfaces delivered through the Web browser on their desktop PCs. Web 2.0 services promise to become very popular throughout the mobile world. However, considering the restricted characteristics of mobile devices, it will be difficult to deliver a PC-like Web 2.0 experience as is. In order to fully leverage the potential of Web 2.0 on mobile devices, it will be necessary to transform the service model and user experience of the PC and adapt it for the mobile market while also overcoming the following two issues: The memory restrictions inherent in mobile devices and limited key input. When considered from this viewpoint, NetFront Browser is the best solution for supporting Web 2.0 services on mobile devices to achieve reasonable performance and usability since its architecture is optimized for mobile devices. NetFront Browser offers the best value for the Web 2.0 mobile ecosystem, including network operators, handset vendors, content providers and end-users.

Column Rendering
When viewing content in the previous desktop mode, text often exceeded the screen width, requiring repeated use of the scroll bar. This issue has been resolved, and functionality has been dramatically improved.

  • Text content (or news) is rendered to fit the width of the screen using a line break function.

  • Column Rendering renders almost exactly what you would see on a PC while also supporting vertical scrolling.


Stick Navigation

  • The stick-to-column function ensures that text displays well on the screen when columns are close together. Moving between columns has never been easier.


Smart-Fit Rendering™
Browsing Web sites developed for desktop PCs on mobile devices is a difficult and frustrating experience, so NetFront Browser includes Smart-Fit Rendering technology. Smart-Fit Rendering intelligently adapts standard Web pages to fit the screen width of any mobile device enabling an intuitive and rapid vertical scrolling process, without degrading the quality or usability of the pages being browsed.

Embedded AJAX Support
NetFront Browser provides seamless support for Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) an open standard Web development technique using XHTML, CSS and JavaScript that enables the creation of highly efficient interactive Web applications. Ajax technology shifts a significant amount of application functionality to the client from the web server, which means that Web pages do not have to reload entirely upon each end-user interaction. Ajax technology dynamically increases a Web application's interactivity, speed, and usability.
