Ben Who?

BENQ. Pronounced "Ben queue."

In case you'd like to see my new company's website, here it is:

www.benqmobile.com

I did a little research at work last week, and learned that BENQ stands for "Bringing Enjoyment aNd ('n) Quality." Hmm. Interesting name for a company. They're very focused on merging technology with fun and enjoyment, and there's a strong focus on the customer, and what the customer wants. It'll be interesting to see how things develop in the next several months and years.*

The entire situation with Siemens and BENQ is a pretty hot topic in west Germany at this point, and not just in Kamp-Lintfort, where I work. People don't know what to make of the situation, and, as a general rule, are sad to see Siemens mobile bought out by a Taiwanese company. But BENQ is larger and more influential that I originally thought, and I think they might be able to turn things around. They already offer things such as digital cameras and displays, laptops and computers, digital audio and video things, a limited number of mobile phones and miscellaneous networking and peripheral devices. In the past couple of days, my confidence in the company has increased. We shall see.

I hope the "enjoyment 'n quality", though, doesn't only apply to the customers. It's emportant for the employees as well... ;)


*disclaimer: Everything I'm writing here is information you can either read in the daily newspapers, hear on the radio, see on BENQ's website, or obviously conclude. I'm not sharing any information I've heard in meetings or heard from other employees.
