Company Profile:

Founded in 1994, Webplus Inc. develops, markets, and supports Web application development and server software for developing dynamic and server-based HTML/XML/WAP Internet and wireless applications, B2B and B2C e-commerce applications, and corporate intranet solutions. Headquartered in Minneapolis, USA, Webplus has a branch office in Aberdeen South Dakota USA, subsidiaries in Hong Kong and Beijing, and a joint-venture company in ShenZhen, China.

The Company spun off Talent Information Management (HK) Limited and sold its GoWeb general consulting division to Keytech, a company owned by a Minnesota billionaire in late 1997. In June 1999, the Company spun off PacificNet.com, a B2B service company listed on NASDAQ "PACT". In October 1999, Webplus established Webplus (Hong Kong) Ltd. The primary business objective for this HK office is to develop business, market, and distribute Webplus's software and to provide e-commerce consulting services to Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Malaysia and other Asia Pacific countries. Furthermore, in March 2000, Webplus set up its Beijing office as Webplus (China) Ltd. The newly formed company will serve as a business development, sales/marketing, distribution, customer support, and technical support center serving the Greater China market. Webplus also expanded its European, Latin America, and global distribution channels by setting up Webplus International.

Webplus Professional Services specializes in B2B and B2C e-commerce solutions and Internet/intranet development. Webplus has helped many small, medium, and multinational clients in various industries make full use of the web technology to take their business to the next level.
