In 2009, Bond International Software opened a new office in Tokyo. This move was pivotal to Bond’s expansion programme across the Asia Pacific Region and indicative of the group’s commitment to build closer partnerships with clients through the provision of Adapt to recruitment and executive firms in Japan.
In the latest edition of One Magazine, Bonds Asia Pacific Manager Antonio deLiseo explains why Bond decided the time was right to open an office in Japan:
‘The decision to open an office in Japan was customer driven. A number of our international clients are already using Bond recruitment and talent management systems in Japan, and our dedicated team can now provide them with a greater level of support…We are looking to provide an increased range of services, including technical back-up and training, and foster greater communication with our clients. In the past support was provided remotely, and mostly in English via our global network, but having people on the ground in Japan now enables us to respond to customer questions and requests in the same time-zone and Japanese language. We are ramping up our support to the next level and envisage delivering measurable benefits as a result…’
And in 2010 – a partnership with grooves corp…
Commencing this month (August 2010), Bond International Software and grooves corp will partner on the introduction of Bond Adapt to Japan’s 18,000 recruitment agencies.
grooves, who currently deploy their Recruiting Net portal in more than 500 staffing firms, will enhance its offering with a world-leading candidate/job management platform for those agencies who are increasingly seeking the global capabilities that Bond Adapt can provide.
