Elex - Bringing China's Internet and The world's internet together
Elex Technology Co. Ltd.has been a key influencer of China's Internet sector and has successfully introduced the best projects from behind the Great Wall to the World.
The total number of Elex employees has already exceeded 500 people divided among Beijing's headquarters and offices around and out of China: Hefei, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Brazilian Sao Paulo. China's largest Internet Group - Tencent (HK: 00700) has carried out a strategic investment in Elex in 2009. Consequently in 2009 the two companies formed a strategic partnership to jointly develop their overseas business in emerging markets.
The founders of Elex believe that China's internet sector will develop successfully similarly to the manufacturing industry, with its own innovations and RNDs recognised by international communities. Over the past several years Elex has partnered with China's largest internet companies including Baidu, Tencent, and Alibaba and top-ranking games companies, like DD Tank, Perfect World, Giant Interactive, and 61.com. Through that strategy we achieved many breakthroughs and successes in overseas markets.
Happy Harvest: Elex's own product - Happy Harvest - became one of China's most influential cultural products recognised overseas within last 30 years since the Reform and Opening-up Movement. From 2008 to 2011 Happy Harvest marked history in the local video game industries of places like Taiwan, China, Brazil, Poland, Germany, and Vietnam, where it became the most popular casual game.
Taking on European and American corporate titans and establishing independent distribution channels:In 2009, Elex was the first in the industry to create its own game distribution team to disrupt the monopoly that European and American companies had on social network gaming. This team overcame difficulties like cross-national payment and customer service to become the first independent distributor of a self-developed game in China's history of network game companies. Afterwards, Elex used its own distribution capabilities to help send many Chinese game companies overseas, creating a new wave in network game internationalization in the industry.
30,000,000 landing:Number od daily visitors of ELEX games exceeded 30 million in 2009. Currently the number of users within Elex services exceed 50M daily active users from over 40 countries and 30 languages. From a little developing studio Elex has transformed into the most internationally influential Chinese Internet company. Plenty of our websites continue to remain among the global Top 1000, and their monetisation records are beaten each quarther.
Stable, healthy growth: In the ever-shifting gaming and internet industry, Elex's has remained true to its stable, healthy business model principle. We are dedicated to becoming a "sun" of the industry, with core business and sustainable, stable growth - not just the "falling star" of a brief success. Since founding in 2008, we have experienced tremendous changes and shifts in the industry, and steadily grown from a 5-person enterprise to an over 500-person company. Our business has also grown by leaps and bounds.
XingCloud: In 2010, in order to resolve the variety of problems encountered in the internet's internationalization, Tencent's strategic partners and renowned internet product and overseas operator Elex jointly invested 30 million Yuan to jointly establish Beijing's Xingcloud Internet Technology Co. Ltd. Xingcloud used cloud technology to successfully solve the language structure, localization, payment, server speed increase, and other problems encountered in the internationalization of internet products, and provide one-stop, efficient solutions. Currently, Xingcloud has become the standard service for internationalization of China's electronics business websites, including internationalization solutions for some of China's top companies like Vancl, 360buy, and dhgate.
337.com:In order to create an alternative for Facebook channeling, in 2010 Elex has launched an independent gaming platform; after 3 years of continous investment and optimisational operations 337 has become a well-known platform for casual games, proper web games and publishing portal for the fully hosted licenced game titles. We have created a product with closed loop ticketing system and own payment channels, which effectively reduced operational costs and improved the monetisation figues as well as users experience.
YAC:In 2013, Tencent QQ doctors jointly launched a free anti-virus service. YAC has received great press overseas and fantastic feedback from the end users. The project lays a foundation on creating foreign-based international user base, with most of the overseas audience concentrated in Brazil, Mexico, the Middle East, Eastern Europe or France.
