With the accelerated development of global economic integration, going overseas for enterprises has become an irreversible trend. In this process, some overseas companies stand at the top of the pyramid like giants, with mature overseas layouts, strong IT teams, and abundant overseas resources. These enterprises are highly digitized and can optimize their supply chains, reduce operational costs, and quickly adapt to the cultural and business environments of different markets through advanced data analysis and global resource integration. However, for emerging overseas companies that have just entered the international market, the reality is harsh. They often lag significantly behind in digital operations and face issues beyond language and cultural differences. The lack of mature IT infrastructure and digital experience has led to significant deficiencies in data management, customer relationships, supply chain optimization, and other aspects for these new offshore enterprises. Such backwardness and contrast not only affect the competitiveness of these emerging overseas enterprises in the global market, but also bring them a series of complex and difficult to solve digital operational challenges.
Overseas enterprises face various challenges in digital operations, including language and cultural differences, financial and tax compliance, cross-border trade and logistics management, cost-benefit analysis, and project management and communication. Especially in cross-border trade, many Chinese overseas enterprises and their upstream and downstream supply chain partners jointly expand their overseas business, such as production layout in Vietnam, North America, and Mexico.
Faced with the digital operation challenges of emerging overseas enterprises, Mr. Wang Qi, a digital expert at ACLOUDEAR, suggests that it is necessary to conduct in-depth research on the ratio of input to output, i.e. cost-effectiveness. Enterprises need to seek efficient and economical solutions to effectively integrate overseas subsidiaries into the digital management system of their headquarters or group.
