Become a Partner

Ashisuto has been publishing and distributing software packages in Japan to business corporations and other large organizations since 1972. As a pioneer in the industry, we have introduced many software products that were previously unknown in Japan.

We have served as representative sales agent, reseller, and master distributor. We utilize our extensive customer base of 6,000 business enterprises, government entities, and non-profit corporations to help supplier-partners increase their share of Japan's information technology market. By always attempting to optimize the success of our customers, Ashisuto has earned the reputation of being a trustworthy and reliable partner and distributor.

Ashisuto's success as a pioneer distributor of new products and its trusted rapport with customers makes us an excellent candidate for new partnerships. We look forward to meeting companies interested in the Japan software market so that together we can explore the possibilities for building new partnerships to serve our Japanese customers.
