Qmarkets forms Strategic Partnership with Japanese B2B Firm to Promote Corporate Innovation in Japan and Beyond

Qmarkets, the leading supplier of collective intelligence solutions, has partnered with Ishin Co. Ltd., a well-established B2B professional services company, to offer a full-service innovation management package to large organizations in Japan.

Tokyo, 5th June, 2020 – Qmarkets is pleased to announce the formalization of a partnership with Ishin Co, in the shared interest of promoting the increased use of innovation management software in Japan. This partnership comes as the result of 9 months of successful cooperation between the two parties working on several strategic opportunities.

Based in Japan, Ishin Co also has offices in Singapore, the USA, and Israel, while Qmarkets maintains a global presence, with employees spread across Israel, the UK, Germany and the USA. This partnership will expand Qmarkets’ presence in Japan, increasing the capacity to offer end-to-end support to both new and existing idea management customers.

Fostering Corporate Innovation in Japan and Beyond

Qmarkets’ suite of collective intelligence platforms are used by leading organizations across the globe to support a wide variety of critical business objectives, from kaizen continuous improvement, to technology scouting, to disruptive innovation management. These platforms allow clients to harness the collective intelligence of their employees, customers, partners, and supply chain, to deliver tangible bottom line results.

“We immediately saw the incredible potential value that the Qmarkets platform could offer to our clients” said Shunsuke Nagaoka, Global business manager of Ishin Co.Ltd. “Japan is one of the most innovative countries in the world, and yet there is little awareness around idea and innovation management software here. With this partnership hopefully we can change that.”

Ishin Co is the latest company to join Qmarkets’ extensive list of global partners. “We’re very pleased to see such an excellent fit between vendor and partner” said Andrew Corbishley, Global Partner Manager at Qmarkets. “This partnership and the increased presence that it will create, represents a significant milestone for our company.
