We are a French-founded start-up company based in Shenzhen, China, and we needs to develop a customized ERP solution to handle our customer's business. We provide e-commerce services for foreign companies willing to sell online in China, using the "only" social media WeChat.
Due to strict censorship in China, connecting API / Webhooks from outside China could be restricted and the country has its own regulation in terms of data policy and Internet usage. Because this project is complex, we have decided to use Zoho One suite as they seems to be the most advanced option and cost-effective.
We are in touch with Zoho China team as they have opened office in Beijing and now provide some of their services to Chinese customers, but through a dedicated server [login to view URL]
Our goal is to include under the same ERP the following functions:
- Zoho CRM
- Zoho Inventory
- Zoho books
- Zoho analytics
- Zoho creator
We will need to connect through API with service providers located in China and in Hong Kong for the following modules:
- E-Commerce platform (1 partner company)
- Payment gateway (1 partner company)
- Logistics & warehousing (1 partner company)
- Social media (WeChat) analytics
API documentation and support available either from official resources online or through our partner's IT team as well as support from Zoho China IT team.
We will develop this ERP in several steps with further improvements and updates over the time. So we are looking for long-term partnership.
