Technology Drives Decisions at Hyundai
In its 30 years of operation, Hyundai Motor Company (HMC) has risen to become the top-ranked automaker among its domestic competitors, as well as one of the world's largest automotive producers. HMC's business strategy revolves around a continuous focus on customer satisfaction, advanced technology, top quality, humanism, and reliability-with the goal of becoming the top auto producer for the 21st century.
With more than 47,000 employees and capital exceeding US$350 million, Hyundai Motor Company currently has the largest independent manufacturing plant in Korea, located in Ulsan, South Korea.
Hyundai Motor Company has locations in Tokyo, Peking, Detroit, and Frankfurt, and subsidiaries such as Hyundai Motor America, Hyundai Auto Technical Inc., Hyundai Motor Finance Company, and Hyundai Motor India.
The company's Enterprise Information and Management System (EIMS) is the first executive information system built with SAS software in Korea. Created in three months for the current domestic automotive market, the EIMS is not just a corporate-wide business management system, but also supports and facilitates executive decision making.

The system has three main components:
Reports produced from the EIMS are delivered directly to the company's executives. The EIMS warehouses information from a wide range of departments in Hyundai Motor Company, such as:
Hyundai has found that the best way to protect its current capital investments is to invest further into managing its most valuable asset information. The EIMS gives the company freedom to be proactive and innovative instead of always reacting to market movements, helping drive Hyundai ahead of its competitors.
