The Department of Industry and Trade is developing software to manage promotions and help enterprises promote online sale
Over the past time, the Department of Industry and Trade (DIT) has employed many information technology (IT) applications, contributing to developing e-commerce, helping enterprises boost production and business, promoting trade, and appreciated by enterprises.
Creation of new space for enterprises
In late 2017, the DIT completed a model of an online map of Vietnamese goods sale points in the province.
Enterprises, facilities, and agencies of Vietnamese goods in the province are integrated with coordinates on Google Map.
The model is like a picture reflecting the actual situation and scale of some Vietnamese goods for sale in the province's districts and cities.
Through the map, enterprises can look up information about distributors, general agencies, a basic network of markets, consumption trades, gas, petroleum, etc. in the province.
The online map is regularly updated, helping enterprises in and outside the province identify locations with supply and demand for each type of goods to promote consumption.
Determining the importance of IT to the existence and development of enterprises, since 2018, the DIT has counseled the Provincial People's Committee to assist a number of young businesses with 70% of the cost of development and initial running of websites for brand promotion and production introduction.
In late 2018, the department successfully built an e-commercial trading floor under the model of connecting trade among enterprises and allowing retail.
The construction and development of the e-commercial trading floor has helped enterprises introduce products, expand markets, and save time and many types of costs.
The e-commercial trading floor will contribute to developing logistic, packing, and merchandise exchange services of intermediary enterprises.
The DIT has also built the model "Hai Duong import and export information management software" to help State management bodies assess and control import and export activities and provide information to support importers and exporters in the province.
Deputy Director of the DIT's Trade Promotion Center Nguyen Luong Ngoc said the unit would continue to counsel the department to take measures to promote IT application to assist enterprises in developing production and business and popularizing products.
The department is developing software to manage promotions and help Hai Duong-based enterprises promote online sale.
It is expected that upon operation at the end of the year, the software will shorten the processing time of administrative procedures, make the handling of promotion dossiers public and transparent, and reduce costs for enterprises.
Since its website was launched, the number of orders of Dung Ninh Phat Trading and Advertising Co., Ltd. (Hai Duong city) has sharply increased
To date, more than 400 sale points of businesses, agencies, and general agencies of Vietnamese goods have been integrated into the online map of Vietnamese goods sale points in the province.
Though the Hai Duong e-commercial trading floor was just put into operation early in the year, there have been more than 100 providers of goods and services.
More than two years ago, Dung Ninh Phat Trading and Advertising Co., Ltd. (Hai Duong city) did not have any website to advertise its services. Invitation and search for orders were mainly based on former relationships. The company's clients were mostly in Hai Duong city.
Early this year, the company was assisted with the cost of website construction by the provincial authorities. The DIT contacted and introduced prestigious website providers and developers for the company to choose.
Since having its own website, the company has introduced its services to numerous clients.
"Since the website was launched, the number of our company's orders has sharply increased. Many businesses in Bac Ninh, Hung Yen, Hai Phong, and Thai Binh have placed orders via the phone number our company provides on the website," said Giang Duc Dung, director of the company.
Tan Dai Minh Water Treatment and Environment JSC. in Thanh Xa commune (Thanh Ha) registered for operation in 2014. For falling behind many other enterprises in clean water production and trading, it is very difficult for the company to seek partners and expand consumption markets.
Since 2018, thanks to the online map of Vietnamese goods sale points in the province, the company has proactively approached markets in other districts and expanded its clean water distribution network in rural markets.
"Through the sale point network, our company has defined distribution strategies and sale plans, effectively controlled our distribution system, and reduced common costs," said Nguyen Van Tien, director of the company.
