Infosys launches 'India in a Box' for Japanese companies

IT major Infosys Ltd today announced the launch of a new solution called 'India in a Box', which enables Japanese companies to jumpstart their business operations in India in a short time.

"The new solution is based on industry-standard Microsoft Dynamics NAV", the Bangalore-headquartered firm said.

"It enables Japanese companies to jumpstart their business operations in India in a shorter time by moving to a robust IT infrastructure in just eight weeks," it said.

The pre-packaged solution is tailor-made for the unique Indian market, addressing issues such as local taxation and accounting, it added.

Infosys set up its Japan operations in 1997. At present, it has offices in Tokyo and Nagoya with more than 200 employees.

Tomoyuki Nakanishi, Group Senior Manager, Dynamics Product Group, Microsoft Japan, said: "Japanese firms are looking to grow in India, which is why 'India in a Box' is such a valuable resource. What used to take years — learning how to navigate the often-complicated Indian marketplace — now takes a matter of weeks. Japanese companies can use this innovative Infosys product as their all-in-one business solution."

V Sriram, Head of Japan, Infosys said: "With this new solution Infosys has tried to address one of the biggest issues facing Japanese companies entering the Indian market: The sometimes rocky interface between a new location and Tokyo headquarters."

"With 'India in a Box', firms can easily establish the interface with the Enterprise Resource Planning in the home office. Executives in Tokyo can manage the sales and production of their Indian operations on a daily basis without a hitch. 'India in a Box' is all about improving real time decision-making and governance," he added.
