The Silicon Review
Orbit Consultancy Services Limited (“ORBIT”) is an information technology service provider based in Hong Kong and since 2010 focusing mainly on providing PeopleSoft solutions to local and overseas clients. Playing the lead roles in the company are the key executives Michael Li (Founder) and Gary Wong (CEO) who pull together business talents, technology expertise, and professional experience to meet the needs of all the customers.
ORBIT’s structure functions with the HR users who share their domain knowledge and business needs to it. The information procured by ORBIT is later used to guide the client to source and implement the right HR-related system. In other words, ORBIT helps clients in optimizing resources and exploring opportunities for better Human Resources.
The First Challenge
ORBIT’s first project was completed in 2012, with a tight schedule (around 6 months). It had to implement Oracle PeopleSoft HCM solution to replace the 3 isolated systems. The most difficult part of the project was data conversion because data is inconsistent since it varies when it comes to two or more systems. Thus, the company had a hard time in identifying these data and had to undergo a huge conversational phase with the clients to discuss the data’s identity. But eventually, it overcame this obstacle to fully match the client’s expectations and grow in the market.
Recruiting has always been the most challenging part for the company. But ORBIT never broke down, it carried its plans and executed it with flying colors. All thanks to the team that consists both young and experienced staffs who work day in and day out.
Although many projects in the past had failed, ORBIT managed to turn that experience into a gift because of the company’s optimistic approach to challenges and failure. ORBIT never gave up and maintained its pace to become one of the leading HR-solutions providers in Hong Kong and soon in the world.
