MONCHENGLADBACH, GERMANY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/07/12 -- DS-Concept Factoring, Inc. (WWW.DS-CONCEPT.NET) has announced the official opening of its new Shanghai Rep office. DS-Concept is a twelve-year-old firm headquartered in Germany. DS-Concept is now financing transactions for small business and entrepreneurs as manufacturers, vendors, suppliers, distributors, and jobbers engaged in import/export.
Chris Chang, CEO/Managing Director of DS-Concept Factoring, Inc., (North America, New York City) for the last four years, has now been appointed in a dual capacity, put in charge of DS-Concept-Shanghai.
According to Mr Chang, an underlying weakness in many economies including financial "meltdowns" in nations like Greece, Spain, and Portugal have led to even more restrictive, tightened credit standards (post 2008) by banks and conventional lenders-especially when enterprises are engaged in global importing or exporting. "Banks, along with factors and asset-based lenders are very reluctant in this climate to entertain transactions where they must collect their funds from an overseas source." Mr Chang continued to say that "import/export trade credit has been an emerging financing trend for the past several years. It has become a stand alone commercial finance paradigm."
Mr Chang described: "I acknowledge that there may have been a recent slowdown in China. But overall, China is very capable of supporting more import/export trade at this juncture. The financial infrastructure in China is now being revamped to accommodate the global financial community. China is making its banking laws more compatible. Whereby China's big financial institutions have only been lending to mega-companies thus, ignoring the little enterprises; now, financial tools like import-export trade credit are being prioritized. DS-Concept has already established expertise, operations, and experience quotients. So it is ramped up to finance this expected new wave of China's import-export growth."
Mr Chang elaborated that: "China's economy may have suffered some dips. However, SME historically are responsible for the economic growth and job creations. Thus the financial service DS provides is integral for the Chinese and global economic recovery.
Mr Chang went onto describe that: "The nature of inventory management today is to minimize holding onto it, and keep it moving through the process. The longer a business owner holds onto inventory it becomes more expensive to finance. So all parties in the supply chain want to fulfil their role and move supply of goods, products, or merchandise forward including the end buyer which will then make use of it or sell it. Import/export trade credit finance is the most efficient and cost effective way of accomplishing this goal versus banks, factors, asset-based lenders, and purchase order financiers which are restricted to financing what is in their immediate 'box'."
Mr Chang explained that import/export trade credit financing is generally competitively priced when all costs and time involved gets taken into account, because conventional financing is often unavailable to the smaller enterprises by banks. He cited several examples of recent transactions:
-An exporter of fabric from China to Bangladesh where DS will fund at time of shipment and collect from Bangladeshi client
-An exporter of sports equipment from China to North America and Europe signs Trade Finance where DS will fund at time of shipment and collect from international buyers
-An exporter of HK commodities trader using DS to fund their purchase of commodities and sell to Fortune 500 Clients.
Mr Chang has announced the appointment of Helen Fan as Vice President of Operations for the DS-Shanghai office. Ms Fan has 20 years of broad work experience from various industries and functions in International Trade Operations, Trade Finance, HR, Administration, Business Development, Marketing & Sales, Logistic, Production and Total Quality Management. She has an in-depth understanding and experience in the factoring sector. Ms Fan majored in English and International Trade in Nanjing Normal University and Suzhou University. She was also awarded a registered Customhouse Declaration Certificate by Customs of China already in 1992. Moreover, she is a registered International Lead Assessor by British Standards Institute (BSI) in 1996.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
