Our brand promise of delivering ‘Customer-For-Life Software’ aligns with the Japanese culture of ‘Omotenashi’, that is striving to offer the best customer experience. Our partnership with OrangeOne is the ideal way to empower Japanese businesses craft such experiences.”
Shin Kasugahara, CEO of OrangeOne corporation, “In recent years, Japanese companies of all sizes including startups, SME and large enterprises, have started to recognize customer engagement as a critical challenge. Most CX products are either too expensive or complicated and it takes a lot of effort and cost to understand and deploy the system. In some cases, inexpensive products with a DIY approach deter companies without the technical knowledge to adopt. As a result, we often hear that companies hesitate to deploy the system or give up early. Freshworks products are ideal for any company, regardless of size. The company’s design philosophy of delivering simple to use products and customer centric pricing models makes it a preferred choice for businesses.”
