VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of power efficient x86 processor platforms, today announced the addition of IT service provider, Blue Express Computer Engineering Technology Co., Ltd., to the growing membership of the VIA Global Mobility Bazaar (GMB) Alliance.
The VIA GMB Alliance was established last year as part of VIA's long-term commitment to inspire innovation in mobile computing devices by sharing its leading-edge technology and expertise in power efficient x86 processor platforms. The Alliance's rapidly growing membership includes a host of PC manufacturing and infrastructure partners who bring together all the essential elements including BIOS, memory, display technology and chassis design to deliver affordable, power efficient mini-notebooks to global markets.
"We are very happy to welcome Bluex to the VIA GMB Alliance," said Kevin YC. Huang, VIA GMB Alliance Chairman and VP of APAC region, VIA Technologies, Inc. "With the Alliance maturing and now able to offer comprehensive after-sales support we believe we will provide an even better experience for users and increase our customers' competitive advantage."
As the VIA GMB Alliance's after-sales service partner, Bluex will be responsible for assuring the quality and providing service solutions for all certified devices manufactured by Alliance members. From July 2009 onwards, all devices sporting VIA GMB/Bluex service stickers will be covered by Bluex's nationwide service support network. Service representatives can be contacted via a toll-free number that will be provided to customers who purchase a VIA GMB certified notebook.
"Bluex membership in the VIA GMB Alliance is an example of a truly win-win scenario," commented Alan Tu, CEO of Bluex. "We see great potential in the VIA GMB Alliance's innovative business model and also in the developing market, and believe together we can deliver to end users a product that is innovative, affordable and of guaranteed quality."
