Vaimo, a top global Magento eCommerce solution provider, continues its worldwide expansion by establishing a presence in Japan. The new office in Tokyo is a result of the strategic partnership with transcosmos, one of Asia’s largest eCommerce companies, which was signed in September 2015. The staff in the Tokyo office will consist of new hires of Vaimo as well as transferred transcosmos employees.
Entering the Japanese market is part of Vaimo’s strategy of becoming the world’s leading provider of eCommerce solutions based on the Magento platform. Japan is a well developed eCommerce-market. Three quarters of the population shop online and 89% of the e-shoppers have made purchases from a mobile device. Japan also exports a significant amount of products across borders, mainly to the United States and China. In 2015, eCommerce sales in Japan totaled 104.7 billion US dollars. The market had a steady growth of 14.6% for B2C and 5% for the B2B segment in 2014, according to the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
“We see a great demand from both B2C and B2B merchants for scalable eCommerce platforms like Magento in Japan. Besides Japan, our future plan is to grow our footprint and provide services in a broader range of markets. Our Asian expansion began in 2015 with our partnership with transcosmos and the opening of our office in Dubai. The Tokyo office takes us one step further in this journey,” says Brendan Peo, COO at Vaimo.
transcosmos’ specialists have previously visited Vaimo’s headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden, for training and knowledge exchange on Magento. Besides new hires, the Tokyo office will also be supported by transcosmos pan-Asian and international resources, as well as by the Vaimo network across the 12 offices around the world.
“We have seen that Vaimo’s Magento offering is powerful and is being trusted overseas, and we believe that this would be a great advantage with our competitors, which is why we want to use Vaimo’s Magento expertise to provide quality eCommerce solutions to Japanese companies,” says Yuichiro Kubo, General Manager at transcosmos inc.
“Vaimo’s entry into the Japanese market is a great validation of the incredible success and growth that we’ve seen from them, and indeed across the entire Magento partner ecosystem,” says Art Boyd, Head of Worldwide Channel Sales at Magento Commerce.
"It is a reflection of the growing interest in Magento in Japan and we are happy to work together with Vaimo and transcosmos to deliver the superior flexibility, scalability, and total cost of ownership for which Magento is known, to more brands, retailers, and branded manufacturers across Asia,” concludes Boyd.
