GREATER CHINA TECHNOLOGY, INC.
Greater China Technology,
Inc. (GCT) is a global company focused on
providing exceptional software programming
at a modest price to Western clients, exporting
US software to China, and operating Internet
businesses in China.
The group is comprised
of subsidiaries in Taiwan, China, and the
United States, as well as alliances and affiliations
with entities in the United Kingdom and Switzerland.
The company has about 50 employees, mainly
computer and graphic professionals in Taiwan
GCT has been developing
its own web sites in the Chinese language
as well as developing web sites of others
through its outsourcing services from China.
It additionally performs design services and
web positioning support from several of its
locations for both English language and Chinese
(traditional and simplified) character sites.
In addition to its
own direct resources, Greater China Technology
has a strategic alliance with a consortium
of 45 Chinese programming houses with over
5000 software developers. This allows wholesale export services to China companies. The alliance is
available for both large-scale projects as
well as some of the more esoteric and arcane
coding requirements as well as large scale
projects, which cannot be readily supplied
by GCT's dedicated resources.
While most of the current,
state-of-the-art skills are resident in GCT,
GCT recognizes the need to keep these skills
sharp and practice. As such, GCT as consciously
elected to only focus on the skill sets that
it is able to keep honed and thereby challenging
and satisfying its technical talent. However,
given the large breadth of requirements that
its clients may have, GCT can provide support
for just about any technical need through
its relationships in China.
outsourcing has been a growing process over
the last several years, gaining awareness
and its credibility with the successful implementation
as a solution in the Y2K preparation. GCT
has studied these successful models and has
recognized that there are areas where it should
compete and others that are best served by
some of the more well-known suppliers of these
GCT has developed a
methodology that it believes capitalizes on
the skill-sets and work styles of its talents.

with the clients by culturally aligned project
managers/designers that GCT has available
in the markets that it supports. There are
bi-cultural project managers and team leaders
in China that serve to coordinate the projects
in China. GCT has its own proprietary information
and project management tool that functions
in conjunction with traditional project management
methodology to support the tracking and management
of the outsourced activities.
The actual programming
staff have been thoroughly trained in the
methodology and approach that GCT deploys
and have successfully delivered high-quality
