Empowered by the latest technologies in the field and the commitment for high quality products, the Goldsun brand is very well known not only in the local market but also in Europe, North America, and Middle East.
In 2013, Goldsun decided to rapidly expand its retail business by opening two chains of stores under the flag of the Modern Life and Goldsun brands, to be located in several Vietnam’s provinces. In the quest to achieve sustainability and growth to drive business success, Goldsun’s Board of Directors recognized the importance of upgrading the management system, to standardize operating procedures and improve administrative effectiveness, in order to always be ready to adapt to the market. Goldsun’s existing IT systems was outdated and unable to meet the management’s future growth requirements.
