Comment from Keisuke Tanaka, Representative Director of INDIGITAL Co., Ltd. INDIGITAL has been providing cross-border telework and EOR services that allow Japanese companies to remotely hire Indian human resources without establishing a local subsidiary in India, amidst a changing environment in which the declining birthrate and aging population are becoming more serious and the country is short of human resources. We have been working to realize a smooth expansion into India by providing support for the introduction of the system and transferring Indian personnel after establishing a local subsidiary. During this time, I was consulted about human resource development and training issues during the start-up phase of business in India. This time, we hope to be able to help clients with these issues by providing VR consulting and VR training “Beatray” in collaboration with Potlatch, which has a development team in India. I am.
Comment from Potlatch CEO Taiga Kobayashi
Our mission is to support the growth of companies through VR consulting and VR training businesses. The VR training “Beetre” is being developed mainly by a team in India. In May of this year, I met with Mr. Tanaka in Bangalore, and as we were deepening our
understanding of the services and customer issues of both parties, we both realized that this was a solution that could solve the “human resources issues” of “overseas expansion.” We have reached a partnership. As we move forward with Beetle’s expansion into Asia, we believe INDIGITAL’s EOR (which handles all back-office and compliance operations including tax and labor management, as well as the provision of social security to Indian human resources) is an indispensable collaborative service. I am.
Beatle solves the problem of the lack of trainers mentioned above by making on-site training self-learning and remote using VR. (Beatle) can be used on any device (VR headset, desktop, tablet, mobile), and includes self-learning content that new employees can practice alone as many times as they like, and a trainer who can participate remotely to provide explanations. We have both remote training environments available. We keep initial costs low and have a monthly billing system based on the number of users. In addition, with VR consulting, we provide development resources on a monthly basis and are able to run the PDCA cycle as quickly as possible, making it well-received as a lean VR business.
About cross-border telework introduction support services
The cross-border telework introduction support service using EOR (Employer of Record) is a trial employment service for Indian human resources for Japanese companies who want to hire talented human resources from India, and also for companies considering expanding into India in the near future. As a trial expansion service for India, we are used by many small and medium-sized enterprises and startups who want to create a foothold for business in India while reducing costs and risks.
