B-EN-G Thai and Sakura System Service to Collaborate in ERP Services in Singapore:
Providing One-Stop IT Services Required for Corporate Regional Headquarters

08.May.2013

Toyo Business Engineering (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (B-EN-G Thai, Managing Director Takashi Hirakawa), which is a Thai subsidiary of Toyo Business Engineering Corporation (B-EN-G, head office Otemachi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, President & CEO Toshinori Ishida), and Sakura System Service Pte Ltd. (SSS, Managing Director Takao Nakajima), which is a Singapore subsidiary of Sakura Information Systems Co,. Ltd. (Sakura Information Systems, head office Shirokane, Minato-ku, Tokyo, President Akihiko Irie), have concluded a sales partnership agreement concerning "A.S.I.A.", a global ERP package. Using the "A.S.I.A." developed by B-EN-G for overseas bases, the parties are to collaborate to expand sales to manufacturers in Singapore.

An increasing number of Japanese-affiliated companies are expanding their businesses into newly developing countries primarily in Asia where consumption, supported by steady economic growth, is rapidly increasing. As Singapore is expected to function as regional headquarters due to its geographical superiority and tax benefits offered by the government, a number of companies have already located or are planning to locate their regional headquarters functions to Singapore. Consequently, as Singapore is increasingly being used as a base for regional headquarters, demand to utilize IT to integrate group companies is also increasing. Therefore, in order to respond to users' requirements for systematization, it is imperative that adequate services are provided in a timely manner.

Since its inception in 1990 as a Singapore subsidiary of Sakura Information Systems, SSS has been providing comprehensive IT services based on its know-how and technologies accumulated through deploying, maintaining, and operating business systems and office IT infrastructure of Japanese-affiliated companies primarily in Singapore. With B-EN-G's "A.S.I.A." newly added to its solutions, SSS will be able to provide one-stop IT services required for corporate regional headquarters in Singapore, ranging from deployment of IT infrastructure, to marketing, purchasing, inventory, and accounting management.

Customers will be able to deploy full-scale, reliable core systems to overseas bases by combining B-EN-G's know-how of installing global ERP solutions and SSS's know-how of installing infrastructure and systems in ASEAN countries. B-EN-G Thai and SSS will provide stronger support than ever to customers' overseas strategies involving IT services.

About A.S.I.A.
"A.S.I.A." is a global ERP package that was created in Japan. The package, based on business practices of Japanese enterprises, supports business management on a global scale. In order to serve the global market, "A.S.I.A." is provided with multi-lingual, multi-currency, and multi-base functions, as well as various functional modules covering accounting, sales, purchasing, and stock management. As the package can handle performance management of individual companies or business units, "A.S.I.A." helps users grasp the status of overseas bases from headquarters in Japan. This means it can be operated as a powerful infrastructure for global group management. Since 1996 when Ver. 1.0 of the package was released, "A.S.I.A." has been introduced into various clients in Japan and other Asian countries. It is now used by 270 corporations and 2,800 users in 20 countries and regions.
