Background to the HULFT Implementation Partnership Agreement
Amidst remarkable economic growth throughout the ASEAN region, Indonesia in particular has seen a surge in the number of Japanese companies locating production and sales operations in the country, chiefly in the manufacturing industry. This has led to increased demand for data integration between Japanese companies and their overseas subsidiaries, for instance, or joint ventures they have set up with overseas companies, as they try to coordinate between different accounting and production management systems. As networks are more vulnerable than in Japan, there is also a real need to deal with issues such as data loss and high-volume data transfers. With existing corporate HULFT users in Indonesia starting to require additional support meanwhile, we felt the need for a partner which is able to swiftly install and develop HULFT products, so that we can cater to customer needs such as these. That is what led to signing an agreement with Fujitsu Indonesia, which has a proven track record and an excellent reputation amongst Japanese companies.
Plans for the Future
This agreement will enable HULFT Pte. Ltd. and Fujitsu Indonesia to create new business opportunities and expand operations in the file transfer, data integration and data conversion sectors in Indonesia, as part of sales, installation and support for HULFT Series products. In addition to offering technical support, training, secondary support and assistance with sales promotion in relation to HULFT Series products based on the HULFT Implementation Partner (HIP) Program, HULFT Pte. Ltd. will also provide Fujitsu Indonesia with powerful support for its own operations in Indonesia.
