New Partner Aims to Hit One Billion Yen from Wrike Solutions Sales by 2021

San Jose, Calif., May 23, 2019 - Wrike, the collaborative work management (CWM) platform for high-performance teams, is expanding its partner program in Japan with the addition of NEC Networks and System Integration Corporation (NESIC). NESIC estimates it will reach one billion Yen in cumulative sales of Wrike related solutions in fiscal 2021 because the platform is central to any digital transformation (DX) initiative and it directly addresses key Work-Style Reform objectives, including resource management, and enabling flexible and remote work. In 2018, NESIC began working to improve the efficiency and productivity of operations using DX technologies, which is what led the company to Wrike, not only a solution to add to their portfolio of offerings but also as a platform that the company could leverage internally for business management.

“With work styles changing, NEC Networks & Systems Integration Corporation foresees a need for a new strategy around distributed office environment,” said Osamu Noda, senior vice president and member of the board, NESIC. “Wrike empowers us to be able to manage operations and projects regardless of location, time, or human resources. Furthermore, Wrike provides real-time visibility and collaboration into all types of work styles, helping to streamline entire organizations as a result of resource optimization.” 

NESIC has been focused on promoting technology that supports progress in the workplace and has been at the forefront of issues surrounding the Future of Work since 2007. The company has been an advocate for work style reform for more than a decade and has been a pioneer in promoting both paperless and teleworking. This agreement enables NESIC to resell Wrike solutions in Japan as an integral part of the increasing DX initiatives that are sweeping Japanese enterprise companies.

“NEC Networks & System Integration Corporation offers the Wrike solution to our customer base. Using our Wrike knowledge base, we assist customers as their one-stop shop, from addressing challenges to deploying the solution, implementing Wrike, and providing customer support for all types of work styles. We are eager to transform the Japanese work style and business processes with Wrike,” added Noda.

“We were thrilled when NESIC became a Wrike customer and to get the opportunity to support them through such an important transition for the company,” said Andrew Filev, founder and CEO, Wrike. “Then, to have them become a partner was another huge vote of confidence for the Wrike platform. We look forward to nurturing both relationships with NESIC and working together to help Japanese companies during this transformative period for the country.”
