The Group strive to provide customised and premium design services to customers with its design capabilities widely recognised by more than 200 international awards.

Future Strategies
Upgrading Central office facilities and setting up new office
EDICO intends to relocate its Kowloon office to a new office of about 4,000 - 5,000 sq ft in Central and Western District in August 2018. The close proximity between the new office and the existing Central office could enable centralisation of various offices on Hong Kong Island for optimising business operations and increase operational efficiency by enhancing communication between offices. The Group also plans to upgrade the Central office to enhance its competitiveness, including renovating the office premises and upgrading conference room equipment.

Expanding workforce

The Group intends to continue providing training to its staff to improve their skills and develop their potential as well as offer various staff benefits. The Group will also recruit experienced and motivated sales representatives, operations staff and translators to accommodate the growing needs of customers and requests for customised services.

Upgrading and acquiring equipment and software
Equipment and information technology are essential integral resources for the continual provision of EDICO's services. The Group relies on its project management system, Prodo, to manage projects and other third party software to prepare and handle documents requested by customers. The Group also uses specific design software to prepare creative content output. EDICO intends to upgrade and acquire more technology equipment and software in order to strengthen its market position and differentiate itself from its competitors and enhance competitiveness.
