About Chow Sang Sang
Chow Sang Sang Holdings International Ltd. (SEHK: 116, hereinafter referred to as Chow Sang Sang) is a jewelry retail brand with a history of nearly 90 years. Established in 1934 and listed in Hong Kong since 1973, Chow Sang Sang became the first Hong Kong jewelry company to be listed.
Chow Sang Sang's mission is to help families preserve the heritage of jewelry, and is continually taking steps in innovation and sustainability in their exploration of new opportunities for today's jewelry market. Their pursuit in providing diversified and high-quality jewelry products and services have made them one of China's leading jewelry retail groups.
An ever-expanding business, Chow Sang Sang has over 10,000 employees and nearly one thousand stores in the Asia Pacific region. Therefore, a secure and reliable human resource management system is needed to support staff management operations, such as attendance records, salary, and welfare.
A suitable human resource management system needs to meet multiple stringent requirements. It should be well-designed to prevent intrusion and data leakage with strict security measures. In addition, it should be easy and cost-effective to maintain.
Why Alibaba Cloud
When planning for the system, Chow Sang Sang took needs in all aspects in consideration, including data protection, security, cost, construction cycle, store location, and scaling capacity.
Alibaba Cloud has deployed abundant resources in the Asia Pacific region. They provide stable, secure, and reliable products and services, which helped us deliver a smooth and secure digital experience. The highly-integrated services of Alibaba Cloud helped speed up construction of our systems by about five times, in addition to helping us save a considerable amount on local deployment and hardware procurement. These advantages were the key factors in our decision to begin our digital journey with Alibaba Cloud.
Sunthy Cloud specializes in system consulting, architecture design, development and O&M. They have a long history of delivering solutions to many enterprise customers in Hong Kong and Macao.
Sunthy Cloud has made full use of advantages of Alibaba Cloud products to provide professional services throughout the business lifecycle. Sunthy Cloud evaluated the architecture and provided suggestions based on Chow Sang Sang's needs, helped deploy networks and migrate systems, and provided assistance to system O&M and technical support.
To ensure a secure, stable, smooth digital experience, Chow Sang Sang adopts a combination of basic Alibaba Cloud products to store, process, and provide access to data. These products include Alibaba Cloud Kubernetes Container Service (ACK), Elastic Computing Service (ECS), PolarDB, Object Storage Service (OSS), ApsaraDB RDS, Log Service (SLS). In addition to these basic products, Chow Sang Sang also uses multiple security products such as, Web Application Firewall (WAF), Cloud Firewall, Bastionhost, and other products to safeguard and manage their security online.
Moreover, Chow Sang Sang uses Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) and Express Connect to build their internal network, which provides employees of different locations fast and secure access to the system. This internal network also reduces network delay and data packet loss, and improves office efficiency.
As Chow Sang Sang puts it, "Alibaba Cloud's extensive product offerings, such as storage, computing, security, and networking, meet our various needs and expectations."
The highly-integrated services of Alibaba Cloud helped speed up construction of our systems by about five times and provides over 10,000 employees of different locations fast and secure access to the system. This cooperation gives us access to the stable and efficient Alibaba Cloud services, as well as the professional and reliable services of Sunthy Cloud. We look forward to partnering up with both of them as we roll out our plans for digital transformation.
Chow Sang Sang will continue to uphold the brand concept of "Sustained Vitality, Ever Rejuvenated", provide customers with high-quality products and services, and closely cooperate with Alibaba Cloud and Sunthy Cloud to introduce innovative technology and promote digital transformation, so as to consolidate the leading position in the jewelry retail industry.
