Taiwan Excellence showcases best in class technology products at Convergence India 2017
Taiwan Excellence (#DrivingInnovation) is an initiative by Taiwanese government to promote products across genres like Electronics and Information Technology to a global audience. Taiwan Excellence is wholly and solely committed in their long standing virtues of dedication to product quality and service by carefully selecting products of utmost standards. They believe in delivering an end to end solutions package to the customers and businesses at large thereby ensuring an enduring fulfilment throughout the supply chain. Their catalog of products is vast and covers stupendous brands that believe in customer delight more than customer satisfaction. And they happen to achieve their targets to the maximum with sheer commitment to the cause.
Taiwan Excellence honors Taiwan's most innovative and value added products and services. The badge of Taiwan Excellence is hard earned and is awarded to products and brands that show immense excellence in Research & Design, Quality, Marketing, Manufacturing and entire supply chain avenues. It was started by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, R.O.C. in 1992 and by now, the symbol and the award are recognised in 100 countries globally.
Taiwan Excellence is organised by Bureau of Foreign Trade, MOEA, Taiwan (BOFT) which implements policies and regulations that govern foreign trade, economic cooperation, and foreign investments. The project in turn gets implemented by Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA). BOFT and TAITRA work hand in hand to implement numerous trade promotion activities along with mission critical government projects that entail commercial trade and investments. TAITRA aids Taiwanese businesses and manufacturers to help them survive and thrive in international markets along with imparting skills to mitigate risks in an internationally competitive scenario. TAITRA boasts of around 1200 foreign marketing specialists headquartered in Taipei as well as over 50 overseas branch offices worldwide.
Taiwan Excellence recently showcased their client portfolio along with a huge variety of products at Convergence India 2017 Exhibition held at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi. The products were very well exhibited and specialists from each client were available to converse with the visitors to clear their doubts and queries.
According to the Director of TAITRA, Mr. Scott Yang, the stall was receiving tremendous response and that they are focused entirely on delivering quality products to the end consumer. When asked about conflicts with Indian Government's initiative of Make in India, Mr. Yang re-affirmed that their sole aim is to entitle each customer the best in class end to end solutions package and so they are ready to co-exist and cooperate with the local government's initiative. Moreover he was very optimistic about the opportunities that such a trade show brings to the consumers and manufacturers alike and hence helps in bridging the gap that connects the two most important entities of any trade. He also mentioned that their medical client Karma is the number 1 manufacturer of wheelchairs in Asia which is quite a feat in itself.
Here are a few of the clients and their exhibited products.
Optoma Corporation (http://www.optoma.com) had a very interesting small sized high definition projector on display. This ultra short throw projector W319UST can project a 100" image from less than 0.5 m away. It projects large shadow-free images from a short distance and has a powerful 16W built-in speaker. For connectivity options, it includes two HDMI ports nd an RJ45 control and monitoring port.
A wide variety of products from the house of Edimax (http://www.edimax.com) were presented too. And one of them stood out from the catalog particularly. Its a Multi-Function Dual Band Wi-Fi Router BR-6288ACL that actually looks like a torch from a distance. This 802.11ac Wi-Fi router is a 5-in-1 device supporting access point, range extender, wireless bridge and WISP. It also has a high gain internal antenna for excellent Wi-Fi performance.
Another high quality product on display was Heartway Medical Products' (http://www.heartway.com.tw) BRIO Power Scooter S19P. This portable electric scooter delivers high efficiency performance and an optimum experience in an urban setting but can definitely be used at country side as well. Though we would have liked to ride the scooter and have a hands-on experience, time as well as space constraints limited our ability to do so.
The next product we were immensely impressed with and didn't have much information about before having a look was the CASHIDO (http://www.cashido.com.tw) 10 Second Machine with Ozone Faucet OH6800_XA2. Since bacteria contaminates food and washing food in tap water does not eliminate bacteria completely, this 10 second machine on your faucet safeguards your food against those harmful substances using the natural oxidisation powers of ozone. To our surprise, a 10 second rinse kills over 99% bacteria and removes over 75% pesticides and hence the name, 10 second machine. It has a large number of use cases and can be installed at homes, restaurants, schools, hotels, spas and other places that come in contact with food. It also has a smart touch screen to select various modes like hand, vegetable and meat washing.
Another product that captured our immediate attention was DrayTek (http://www.draytek.com/index.php?/lang=en) Enterprise-level ceiling mount access point AP910C. As the name suggests, this access point can be mounted on the ceiling and has optimised antennas built in. This wireless access point can be installed and used in hospitals, small offices, universities or colleges.
In the plethora of IT products, we also found some medical products make their way. Medical client APEX (http://www.apexmedicalcorp.com) displayed their Respiratory Therapy iCH Auto. This therapy has a clinically proven auto-adjusting algorithm. It uses an SD card and USB port for efficient data exchange with devices and it works in an ultra quiet manner. The product leaves a very small footprint including a heated humidifier.
Other than the miscellaneous products mentioned above, there were also the usual suspects of mobile and computing devices, USB devices, power supplies, cables, surveillance systems and networking devices neatly designated across the stall. A few of these clients include world famous brands like Acer, Asus, msi, ADATA, Transcend, Gigabyte etc. and some not so famous ones like Apacer, Avision, LOF, plustek, yantouch among others.
All in all, Taiwan Excellence is focused in its vision of promoting products of tremendous quality that come out of the stable of Taiwanese manufacturers. The clients delivering these products are further engrossed in their efforts to provide superior after sales service thus making the entire experience of buying or shopping a treat for the consumers. Taiwan Excellence is a symbol of pride for Taiwan that promotes, showcases and rewards products that are exceptionally well developed and maintain optimum quality of service. Taiwan is a country well known for its marvellous manufacturing capabilities and the Taiwan Excellence stall at Convergence India 2017 provides the most suitable platform for Taiwan's industries to promote trade in India thereby strengthening foreign commercial relations with our country. This #DrivingInnovation effort by Taiwanese government shall open the doors to multifarious avenues of economic trade between the two countries and promises to be a great booster to technology adoption in our country on the whole.
