Change Continuously to Stand in Toy Industry
PLAYGO is one of the leading toys manufacturer in Hong Kong. In recent years, the change of global economy and business environment also brought great challenges to PLAYGO. "In the past, our products mainly targeted to 3-14 years old. With the development of technology, we have added more electronic and intelligence elements to our toys in order to widen our product age," said Connie Lin, Managing Director of PLAYGO. In addition to ODM for other brands, PLAYGO also build their own brand which is 30% of all products now. "Customers are now more demanding, they require different support services, e.g. self-quality check, packaging design, etc. As a result, we cannot still rely on manual operation in this changing business environment”

PLAYGO started using TecE ERP system since 2002, a lot of paperwork and manual input job were reduced and efficiency are greatly improved. The communication between Hong Kong and PRC are also enhanced with more centralized and transparent information. TecE will consolidate the operating data and provide KPI analysis in real time basis which support management level to formulate appropriate sales strategy.
