I’m in.
When selling products of companies that support exports with Digitrad overseas, we send samples to the local market and conduct market research and competition research in advance. The information obtained at this time must be accurate and up-to-date information, and in the case of areas where the company does not have a base, it is necessary for employees to go on a business trip to the site or outsource it to a local cooperating company.
The travel site “AirTrip” operated by AirTrip boasts 1.43 million members and 30 million page views per month, making it one of the largest in the travel industry in Japan. As we enter the post-corona era, demand for overseas travel and overseas business trips is recovering steadily. Through this alliance, we will proceed with discussions on measures that will enable us to strengthen Standage’s ability to develop overseas sales channels and obtain real-time and multifaceted local market information.
In addition, AirTrip, which has led the industry in travel and IT, and Standage, which has engineers in-house while being a startup and has accumulated know-how in blockchain and system development, will bring together their respective knowledge to create new initiatives and businesses. We will proceed with discussions as much as possible.
