Cegid opens new cloud point of delivery in China for retailers

Cegid, a European software vendor, has opened a new cloud point of delivery (POD) in Shanghai to help retailers with stores locally to adhere to strict data privacy laws introduced across mainland China. The Chinese authorities are enacting new laws concerning the protection of personal data, which dictate that customer information must be kept locally.

Many retailers, lured to China by the prospect of significant growth, with high demand for western brands in particular, face a crippling process of following all the legislative text and complying with regulations limiting the storage and transfer of data outside the territory. The new cloud point of delivery will ensure that all retailers operating in the region will be able to comply with local data residency requirements, Cegid said in a press release.

Already, over 60 apparel and beauty brands, including Longchamp, L’Occitane, Lancôme, Delsey, and Isabel Marant, have adopted the Cegid retail solution to run their stores across China. To extend its cloud services across the Chinese mainland and deploy the new POD, Cegid has partnered with Chinese operator 21Vianet Blue Cloud, one of the premier cloud computing solution and service providers in China and an official partner of Microsoft for Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Power Platform, Cegid said.

The Cegid retail solution is already adapted specifically for the Chinese market: covering local business, legal, language, and taxation requirements, but also in accordance with a greater reliance on social media and online marketplaces (like Tmall, WeChat, and JD) for digital shopping in China. With this new cloud POD, retailers can now benefit from Cegid retail’s SaaS solution in China, according to Cegid.

“For over 15 years, we’ve supported many specialty retailers and luxury brands in developing their activities in China. Cegid’s investment in this new data centre in China is in response to meeting the needs of our customers and complying with the constantly evolving regulatory framework for enhanced data protection and data localisation. Many luxury brands look upon China as a vital market for sustained growth and will continue to benefit from our local support and international expertise,” Nathalie Echinard, director of the retail business unit at Cegid said in a statement.

The POD in Shanghai will be Cegid’s fourth international data centre, adding to existing locations in the US, Ireland, and Singapore.
