Savioke is thrilled to announce a new partnership with NEC Networks & System Integration Corp. (NESIC), the leading systems integrator in Japan. Headquartered in Tokyo, NESIC will be the "one-stop shop", handling distribution, installation, and maintenance for Relay robots in Japan.
In terms of number of robots sold per annum, Japan is the third largest robotics market, embracing robotics in industrial and other industries since the 1970s. For Savioke, Japan is a huge market opportunity. With NESIC’s strong distribution network, Relay will soon debut in hotels, high-rise residences, office buildings, retail stores, hospitals, and other locations across Japan.
Japanese businesses and consumers will get a first look at Relay this week at NESIC’s Customer Fair 2017, an innovation festival featuring up-and-coming technologies held at The Prince Park Tower Tokyo.
Japan and other Asian countries are key markets for Savioke, as the company grows its international footprint. Last October Recruit Strategic Partners (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo) became an investor in Savioke, and our Relay robot is in operation at the Singapore M Social. We’re looking forward to working hand in hand with NESIC to sell many Relay robots in Japan this year and in the future. We couldn’t have asked for a better systems integration partner than NESIC in the exciting Japanese market.
