The company will provide its Duzon Bison Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to the Pyeongchang Organising Committee, who will use the technology for budget management, cost accounting and operational staff management.
“We are delighted to be working with Pyeongchang, we will do over very best to support the Games by providing the optimised and customised budget management software that they require,” said Jae Ku Yoon, Duzon Bizon managing director.
Both companies will in return receive marketing opportunities at the Games as well as the right to use official Pyeongchang branding in all promotional material.
