Works Applications Co., Ltd.
Works Applications Enters Strategic Partnership with TD SYNNEX – Building an ecosystem for local SMEs and startups that have problems responding to legal revisions such as DX and invoice systems –
Works Applications Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Osamu Hata; hereinafter referred to as WAP) is a global leading distributor TD SYNNEX Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Koto-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director We are pleased to inform you that we have entered into a strategic partnership with President: Shigetaka Kunimochi, hereinafter referred to as TD SYNNEX, to strengthen the provision of WAP products and services to small and medium-sized enterprises and start-up companies nationwide.
Background of cooperation
TD SYNNEX’s relationship with local partners and WAP’s service lineup, which has a track record of introduction by 2,200 companies, support the promotion of DX by local companies.
WAP not only sells ERP and groupware directly to major companies, but also offers a wide range of products and promotes diversified sales strategies. In particular, SaaS products can be easily introduced from a small scale, so they are products that can be used by small and medium-sized companies and start-up companies, and we would like to meet the needs of a wide range of customers.
TD SYNNEX, a leading global distributor, has a nationwide sales network in Japan as well. On the other hand, we wanted to strengthen our solutions for customers in order to expand our solution lineup in response to legal revisions such as the invoice system and the revised Electronic Book Storage Law.
Under such circumstances, we have concluded a strategic partnership to build an ecosystem to solve the challenges faced by local companies in promoting DX and responding to legal revisions while leveraging the strengths of both companies.
Supporting SMEs that are required to respond to legal revisions such as DX and invoice system approaching 2023
According to a survey released in May 2022 by the Organization for Small and Medium Enterprises and Regional Innovation, an independent administrative agency, *1, the percentage of companies that are already working on DX is 7.9%, which is less than 10%, and there are companies that are in the process of DX. I can see that most of them are. Furthermore, in 2023, revisions to laws such as the invoice system and the revised Electronic Book Storage Act are imminent, making it even more important for companies to promote DX.
By establishing a cooperative system between WAP and TD SYNNEX this time, we would like to support local companies that are under pressure to convert to DX and respond to legal revisions. In the future, the two companies plan to actively disseminate information through seminars and other means while collaborating.
Comment from Hiroyasu Ito, Managing Executive Officer of TD SYNNEX Co., Ltd. TD SYNNEX is very pleased to enter into a strategic partnership with Works Applications. In addition to TD SYNNEX’s knowledge of efforts to promote and expand regional businesses, by combining the “Easy to start DX on site” SaaS service provided by Works Applications, We hope to contribute even more to the expansion of further business opportunities for our partners.
