Workshift Solutions Co. Ltd. (Head office in Tokyo, Shibuya-ku, CEO: Shigenori Araki, hereafter called Workshift) and JTB (Head office in Tokyo, Shinagawa-ku, CEO: Hiroyuki Takahashi, hereafter called JTB) the largest travel agency in Japan and one of the largest in the world have announced a Japan inbound business tie-up for developing Japan inbound solutions using overseas online workers.
Workshift will provide its platform and know-how of global online freelancers and together with JTB will develop a system for companies seeking overseas workers as well as an inbound marketing service for companies targeting foreign tourists visiting Japan. The first step will be to use IT technology to reach overseas-based workers quickly and inexpensively for supporting JTB’s Survey Service. According to JTB, this service is expected to grow rapidly.
This business tie-up will provide a one-stop solution for JTB, reducing the time required for negotiating, vetting, and quality inspection. In addition, the accumulated know-how provided by Workshift in terms of its large portfolio of overseas skilled workers has enabled JTB to create its own original “JTB team” of overseas online workers.
