With excess stock being a challenge for them and many others in this market, the company aimed to turn excesses into revenue through a unique distribution concept.
Mendix: Bringing a Low-Code Platform to the Chinese Market
Mendix offers very economical deployment options, enhancing Low Code with Low Ops. Servicing makers in China meant making a specific Mendix Cloud available on local infrastructure.
“If you want to develop a new product, Xebia and Binx.io’s consultants extend your team in a most valuable way. They helped us grow muscles as a team and as individuals. They gave a hand where needed so we delivered on our targets. With their support, we became the high-performance product team we are today.”
“To enter the Chinese market with our Mendix Cloud, we relied on the strong consultancy services of Binx.io and Xebia to establish a scalable solution based on local Chinese technology. Without the help of Binx.io and Xebia, we would not been able to develop a solution of this quality in so little time.”
