ICAD Platform Software Fills in the Country's Blank
In the recent Jiangsu provincial Conference on Technological Innovation, Suzhou Haochen Co., as appointed attendee of the meeting, captured wide attention for its independent innovation endeavors.
Suzhou has always placed independent innovation on a strategic position to achieve the goal of switching from "made in Suzhou" to "created in Suzhou". In the next 5 years, quality will be given priority rather than speed in economic growth, and the hi-tech industrial output value, estimated at 800 billion RMB, is expected to reach 40% of the total industrial output value. In guiding the development of innovative types of industries, software industry was listed as the second largest backup industry in Suzhou. Software industrial parks were set up one after another.
Suzhou Haochen, which entered SIP in 2001, has recently successfully developed the latest edition of ICAD-V2006i platform software after few years' efforts, filling in a blank in this field in China and breaking up the monopoly of foreign suppliers. The ICAD platform software is now in wide application at Shenzhen Architectural Designing Institute, and the result has testified to the fact that the software has reached the overseas advanced level of the similar products.
Professional analysts anticipate that in the years to come, the market scale for CAD software in China will involve 2.26 million sets in the value of 35 billion RMB. Currently, most of the users are still dependent on the second round of development based on foreign-manufactured platform software, which is unaffordable to most of them. The successful development of the software by Haochen will alter such a situation.
So far, the ICAD platform software of Haochen has been accepted and recommended by Ministry of Construction and the industrial administrative departments of Hebei, Fujian, Xinjiang, Dalian, Jilin, Shanxi, Shandong, Yunnan, Jiangsu, and Tianjin. Hopefully the software will become an ideal replacement for foreign-made platforms. With such encouraging prospect for future growth, Suzhou Haochen is seeking technological cooperation with various quarters in an effort to further raise the R&D capability of core technology to add new impetus to the continued innovation in the enterprise.
