October 2007: ASET Launches Vendor Invoice Program (VIP) Beta Program
In mid-October, ASET launched its proprietary web-based invoicing system into beta testing. The system, known as the Vendor Invoice Program (VIP), will be used by a group of 30-40 current ASET vendors for a period of approximately one month. Testing vendors will provide feedback on various aspects of the program before it goes live toward the end of 2007. Designed to streamline the contracting and invoicing processes, use of the VIP system will eventually be required of all vendors. If you would be interested in taking part in the beta testing program, please contact us at VIPSupport@asetquality.com.
Summer 2007: ASET Opens Beijing Office
In early summer 2007, ASET opened a Creative Services/DTP satellite office in Beijing, China, in order to provide 24-hour service and support to our clients. This additional production unit allows us to provide tighter turn-around times for print and documentation projects and increases our flexibility in terms of resource allocation. ASET can take full advantage of the difference in time zones. A project can be assigned to our Beijing team at EOB on the East Coast, and be completed before the beginning of the next business day.
