Pact results in Bell-Pact

No one can ever accuse PacificNet, Inc. of doing things in a small way. The Asia-side provider of gaming technology, e-commerce, and Customer Relationship Management services in China, opened a joint venture with Japan-based Bellsystem24 last week.

Bellsystem 24 is said to be Japan’s single largest telemarketing call center services provider. (How big is it? Try over 5,000 clients, 27,348 communication service representatives and 33 offices throughout Japan.)

Dubbed a bit, um, Spartanly, Bell-Pact Consulting Limited is located in Shanghai, and was opened grandly by executives from PacificNet and Bellsystem24 in an opening ceremony.

The two parties signed the joint venture agreement in January of this year, with PacificNet owning a 40 percent equity stake and Bellsystem24 with 60 percent of Bell-Pact. Aggregate investments totaled about $643,000.

The joint venture will principally offer CRM call center consulting and training services, technical and business consulting services, network product sales, software development, system integration, value-added services and the soon-to-be classic “other relevant services.”
