Esri Japan Opens Its Doors

Pasco Corporation of Tokyo, Japan, and Esri have, in a joint venture, established a new company--Esri Japan Corporation.

The new company will be Esri's international distributor in Japan. With a significant lineup of localized ArcGIS family products, Esri Japan will enhance its services by offering training for the installation and expansion of GIS technology with a goal of helping new users. A consulting service unit will respond promptly to high-level support demands from existing users. Furthermore, to support GIS in education the company will work closely with primary schools and junior and senior high schools.

Pasco has been a leading company in aerial photogrammetry, surveying, and GIS in Japan. After establishing Esri Japan, Pasco will enhance its ability to provide solutions and services in fields such as environment, disaster management, medical, social welfare, and education as well as Business information systems.

Pasco's president, Sadao Ohtake, says, "This union of companies will improve our customer service to the Japanese GIS community, which has been expanding rapidly in response to the progress of information technology."

"For years, Pasco Corporation and Esri have worked together to bring spatial analysis in Japan and Southeast Asia into the spotlight," says Jack Dangermond, Esri president. "Esri Japan will continue providing the highest quality services to the variety of customers in this region."
