“We spend a lot of time on our engineers’ development every year. We continue to provide them with Siemens training and education,” say Jong Heon Hong, executive director of KIMIES Corporation. “In order to meet the requirements of various customers, we provide professional services for Siemens solutions, and deliver maintenance, training and other services. We also provide these services to our tier-two partners to support their business based on a win-win strategy.”
KIMIES values many aspects of it partnership with Siemens Digital Industries Software, especially the energetic involvement of Siemens Digital Industries Software. “Siemens' active engagement in education, support and cooperation is a key factor that helps us to expand with new solutions,” says Hong. “Based on it, we can create more industry solution opportunities in the market over the long term.””
Siemens Digital Industries Software’s market development funds (MDF) program has also been beneficial to KIMIES. Under the program, Siemens reimburses partners for expenses incurred in sales and marketing efforts. “We take advantage of Siemens Digital Industries Software’s market development funds program,” Hong says, “For example, by using MDF, we did annual advertising in the KTX magazine of Korea Railroad Corporation, which is used by many business people in Korea. What is more important than anything else is that we have greatly strengthened our understanding of advertising and its considerable contribution to the brand value of our company.”
KIMIES has realized significant business success and growth through their partner-ship with Siemens Digital Industries Software. “Over the past four years, our company has grown by over 500 percent,” says Hong. “I expect we will grow more in the future.” Siemens has also recognized the excellence of the company’s sales and marketing performance. At the 2017 Converge Asia-Pacific Executive Partner Forum, KIMIES was named Top Partner in Korea, and Best Marketing Performance Partner for fiscal year 2016.
