Kingdee announced on March 2 that it had taken over Guangzhou ProWay Technology
 Co., Ltd., a Guangzhou-based supplier of product life cycle management (PLM) software, at a cost of CNY 21 million.

Kingdee will make use of the takeover to master the PLM technology and hold related talents, a necessary push to its expansion, said Chen Dengkun, vice president of Kingdee.

Kingdee will consider software acquisitions as quick response to changing consumers in a bid to meet their different needs, it pointed out. It will expand deeply in the software field.
