eFuture Announces Opening of Jindian.com.cn Retail B2B Website

Website helps local suppliers enter retail stores across China

BEIJING, April 22 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- eFuture Information Technology Inc. ("eFuture"), a leading front-end supply chain management software and service company in China and Beijing Wangku Hutong Information Technology Co., Ltd. ("Wangku"), one of China's leading retail business-to- business ("B2B") e-commerce service providers, today announced the launch of a 100-day public testing pilot of http://www.jindian.com.cn/ ("China Jindian"), a jointly-designed B2B website for small to medium-size suppliers and retailers.

"In Mandarin Chinese, 'Jindian' literally means 'enter the store,' which is exactly our goal," said Mr. Adam Yan, eFuture's chairman and chief executive officer. "Over 80 percent of local suppliers do business directly with local retailers. With China Jindian, we're leveraging our strong relationships with China's retail clients to help local suppliers enter retail stores across the country. This exciting development simplifies the supply chain and will also help our over 700 retail clients, which use over 500,000 suppliers and include many of China's top 100 retailers, expand their procurement sources, increase procurement efficiency and reduce procurement cost."

The China Jindian online platform provides a searchable database of subscriber-posted listings focusing on the retail and consumer goods industries. On the website, suppliers can post listings with product descriptions, contact information, location and in some cases videos showcasing the suppliers' factories. The postings are separated by category, brand and location and searchable by retailers, who can post requests for products and suppliers, store information and details about new store openings.

"Our leading position in e-commerce, team of over 100 partners, which have over 2,000 salespeople, and network of more than 200,000 member clients are an ideal complement to eFuture's supply chain management capabilities and relationships with China's top retailers," said Mr. Haibo Wang, Wangku's chief executive officer. "There are millions of small to medium-size retailers and suppliers in China that, while wanting to do business in the national retail market, simply don't have the medium to meet and exchange information with national retailers. China Jindian's user-friendly and reputable e-commerce platform ensures efficient communication and opens the door for future generations of retailers and suppliers in China to succeed."
