A flurry of activity aimed at promoting good asset management practices

As part of its COVID-19 crisis plan, announced in February 2020, Siveco has increased its investment in the Chinese market. The company made the strategic decision to provide extra funding not only for R&D (see this month’s announcement on the release of bluebee® X, last month’s articles on the bluebee® club for industrial SMEs and our AR smart glasses solution for remote support) but also for marketing activities. This decision was designed to take advantage of weakened competition: several international suppliers have left the China and even Asia in the past year, while low-end domestic competitors has been visibly impacted, with a marked reduction in their marketing efforts. The last quarter of the year has been particularly rich in events, which we would like to briefly recap today:
