Japan is a strategic market for Infosys. We have invested significantly in local talent and leadership, bringing digital services, and investing into the future of what clients are looking for.
Procurement is a big focus area for Manufacturing & Hi-tech clients which Japan is known for. All large corporations in Japan will go through significant procurement spend, and we believe this joint venture will deliver to the promise of transforming their procurement processes using next-generation digital platforms, as we bring together the combined power of deep procurement expertise, technology, global expertise and local skills. We are very excited to partner with Hitachi group, Panasonic Corporation and Pasona Group, established conglomerates in this market.
Infosys will bring its global expertise in procurement processes, consulting, analytics and digital technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to the venture. Combined with Hitachi and Panasonic’s knowledge of their procurement functions and local teams, and Pasona’s human capital and BPM networks in Japan, we will have best-in-class procurement processes for our customers. I look forward to your support and HIPUS will be an endorsement to our commitment to building a local presence and partner with Japanese corporations to accelerate their digital journey.
