The development of ERP system in CHJ Development Corporation has been completed and been used for various applications, which helps improve its management and servicing level.
In 2005, CHJ was approved as the Demonstration Park of Informatization by Shanghai Municipal Informatization Commission. The information application in the SME has been improved in the Park.
