Tokyo, Mar 30, 2012 - ( JCN Newswire ) - Pasona Group Inc., Mitsubishi Corporation and Bewith, Inc. (100% owned by MC) have agreed that the Pasona Group will take over a 60% equity interest in Bewith from MC. As a result of this transaction, the Pasona Group and MC will start jointly managing Bewith from May 2012. The purpose of this transaction is to establish Japan's foremost outsourcing-service company focusing on contact center operations and BPO business.
As a result of the March 11, 2011Great East Japan Earthquake, Japanese companies have a rapidly growing concern about securing business continuity under such disastrous circumstances. Reflecting this trend, there is increasing demand for using outsourcing services as an "insurance policy". However, in reality there are not enough service providers in Japan that can design, administer and cover all processes of outsourcing at a national level that reflects the client's business objective and challenge with an understanding of the company's business strategy.
Bewith intends to strengthen and expand its business base by providing best-fit outsourcing services for current and potential customers, thereby helping to enhance business productivity. To achieve this goal, Bewith can harness business advantages of the three companies: (I) Pasona Group's nationwide networks and expertise in temporary staffing services as well as outsourcing and contracting operations; (II) MC's business management capability; and (III) Bewith's skills in business process analysis and project management.
