transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda; TSE First Section: 9715; hereafter, transcosmos) will start providing E-Commerce one-stop services for the United States to VAIO Corporation (Headquarters: Azumino, Nagano Prefecture, Japan; President: Yoshimi Ota) through its subsidiary transcosmos America Inc. As a sales agency in the United States, it will offer total support for VAIO® brand PCs, including E-Commerce development, wholesale sales, import procedures, other registration work, payment, repair and customer support.
transcosmos offers global E-Commerce one-stop services in 34 countries around the world, including Japan, Europe, the United States and Asia with a focus on China and South Korea. With the expansion of VAIO Corporation into the U.S., transcosmos has been selected as a partner in recognition of its extensive experience and business development of E-Commerce support both inside and outside Japan.
The following comments have been received from Masaru Hirauchi, a Corporate Officer and Head of Global Business Development of VAIO Corporation.
“Since formation of the company on July 1, 2014, VAIO Corporation has been devoted to the launch of the Japanese market, but it is now moving into overseas markets with the aim of further business expansion. As a first step, we have selected transcosmos America Inc. as a partner in the United States where we will be expanding. For a company of about 240 persons with no overseas branches or local employees, transcosmos is the best business partner since it can provide all of the necessary functions at one-stop, including everything from E-Commerce development and wholesale sales to customer service. I want to create a new story about VAIO® in the United States with our two companies working closely together.”
