Sansan, a Japanese provider of cloud-based solutions that promote digital transformation (DX) and reshape how we work, has announced its plan to open a new global development center in Cebu, the Philippines in 2023.
The opening of its newest center is aligned with the company’s effort to further strengthen the development of Sansan’s product functions for global markets by establishing a global-standard technology development environment.
With a focus on Southeast Asia, Sansan wants to accelerate its overseas product expansion, including its namesake sales DX solution Sansan and online invoice receiving solution Bill One.
“We decided to establish Sansan Global Development Center, Inc. in Cebu to strengthen our product development for overseas markets. The Philippines is actively attracting and supporting global IT companies, and Cebu is known for its high-level IT education and large pool of talented engineers. The Center’s opening will let us strengthen regional recruitment of engineers and improve our development environment overseas,” said Fujikura Shigemoto, Executive Officer, Head of Overseas Establishment Team of Sansan, Inc.
Their Cebu Center, according to Fujikura, will be opened during the early part of 2023 to uphold their mission of “turning encounters into innovation.”
Sansan provides its namesake Sansan B2B service powering digital transformation in companies, the Eight career management app for individual professionals, Bill One for online invoice receiving, and Contract One for cloud-based contract management.
Established on June 11, 2007, the company that is based in Tokyo, Japan has a capital of 6,450 million yen as of August 31, 2022.
Through its overseas subsidiary Sansan Global Pte. Ltd. (“Sansan Global”), the company has been rapidly expanding the availability of the Sansan and Bill One solutions in various countries including Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia.
Wanting to further accelerate its global ambitions, Sansan should be able to respond to the increasing needs of is local customers. Doing this would require greater investments into multi-language support teams and the development of unique functions in line with each country’s laws and regulations, systems, business customs, and workflows.
