Leading Player in Taiwan's High Tech Sector
To deal with the IC design industry’s complex supply chain, GUC wanted to employ a flexible and innovative business model, and function as a key design hub that integrates IP providers and IC design partners.
However, the company had to first sort out its internal processes. Project status reports proved inaccurate as project information was updated manually every week. Managing product issues required many resources and problem-solving knowledge was neither accumulated nor compiled into a database.
GUC needs to continually communicate, coordinate and collaborate with wafer manufacturers, packaging plants, test plants, and other business partners. As such, it requires a comprehensive project management integration platform to handle the intricate internal and external business processes.
Founded in 1988, Global Unichip Corporation (GUC) is Taiwan’s sixth largest integrated circuit (IC) design company with a revenue of TW$9.28 billion (US$287 million) in 2008. With customers from around the world, GUC specializes in providing IC design solutions.
