Comments from Mr. Takashi Sube, President and CEO of transcosmos Korea Inc.
“This year marks transcosmos Korea’s 13th year since its contact center operation launch in 2001 with a 200 seat scale.
Since then, transcosmos Korea has been providing various services starting with contact center, digital marketing such as Internet advertisement, and offering a comprehensive “one-stop” service from E-commerce research and analysis, E-commerce website construction and operations, web promotion, to fulfillment to support the corporate clients’ sales and marketing needs, making it the largest IT outsourcing company among the independent companies in South Korea.
On the other hand, the Busan Center started with a 100 seat scale in 2003 over a decade ago. Through this renovation and expansion of the Busan Center, we would like to accelerate our business development in South Korea along with contributing to creating employment opportunities for women and to the economic growth in the region.
transcosmos Korea will strive further to contribute to employment promotion not only in the City of Busan but in the entire South Korea. We would like to ask you to continue to extend support for transcosmos Korea’s growth and development.”
