Kingtone Wirelessinfo Solution Holding Ltd is engaged in developing mobile enterprise solutions for industries to improve operating efficiency by facilitating mission-specific field & long-distance information management in wireless environments.

Kingtone Wirelessinfo Solution Holding Ltd was incorporated on October 27, 2009 under the name of Reizii Capital Management Ltd. On December 17, 2009, the Company changed its name to Kingtone Wirelessinfo Solution Holding Ltd. It is a China-based developer and provider of mobile enterprise solutions. It conducts substantially all of its operations through its contractually-controlled PRC entity, Kingtone Information, which focuses on developing mobile enterprise solutions in China. It provides a suite of applications that enable mission-specific field and long-distance information management in wireless environments. The Company's software enables such systems to get extended to personnel in the field using wireless devices such as smart phones, PDAs, cameras, barcode scanners, portable printers, GPS devices, and tablet computers. Mobile enterprise solutions also include custom software applications for specific industries and businesses. It acts as a solution provider, packaging its software with various third-party hardware and related equipment. The Company's core middleware platform resides on the customers' servers. It is comprised of two layers of modules. The General Purpose Layer consists of mandatory software modules required to support the application software plugged into the middleware platform. The Basic Layer modules are also mandatory components that perform basic functions, such as communicating with a variety of hardware and software platforms, computer operating systems, networking and database products, coordinating and synchronizing the tasks performed by its solutions, and adding information security to data transmission. It has developed two types of software applications that could be selectively overlaid with the middleware to complete a packaged solution, namely, Information and Communication-Technology Converged, or ICT-converged, and Vertical Industry Applications. The Company's portable video server for vehicles or individuals could be integrated into the overall solution or purchased separately to add live mobile video surveillance or transmission functions to its customers' existing systems. Some of the competitors are IBM, Fujitsu, Syclo and Accenture. The software industry in the PRC is regulated pursuant to two primary policies - the Measures Concerning Software Products Administration and the Recognition Standard and Management measures of Software Enterprises.
