By Ken Briodagh August 08, 2018

According to a recent release, Litmus Automation, an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform provider, has signed a distribution and implementation partnership with FUJISOFT, a global software technology company based in Yokohama, Japan. The relationship will further expand the reach of Litmus Automation products in Japan and the surrounding region including LoopEdge and LoopCloud.

“FUJISOFT is a Japanese ¥180 billion company and they work with many of the largest manufacturing customers in Japan, so this partnership will give us an inroad into a much larger customer base,” said Vatsal Shah, co-founder and CEO, Litmus. “FUJISOFT also has offices throughout Asia to help us continue to expand and support customers in the APAC region.”

As a distributor, FUJISOFT will sell Litmus Automation’s LoopEdge and LoopCloud software platforms, while providing customer support in Japanese and in local time zones. They will also provide installation and implementation services for LoopEdge and can scale any deployment with extensive system integration experience and resources.

“We are pleased to start our business with Litmus Automation,” said Seto Arai, Director and Executive Operating Officer, and Director of Solution Business Division, FUJISOFT. “We're currently taking on bold challenges toward new technologies called AIS-CRM and IoT is one of them. With the value of Litmus products and our knowledge of system integration, we can provide customers with beneficial IoT solutions.”
