We appointed Intralink to support Sigfox business development activities in Japan with the objective of identifying and selecting a Sigfox Network Operator partner. Over 18 months we have been working closely, almost daily, with the Intralink team carrying out due diligence activities, field testing support, go-to-market discussions and commercial negotiations. We are extremely pleased to have completed successfully this undertaking with the appointment of Kyocera Communications Systems as the exclusive Sigfox Network Operator in Japan.
It has been a pleasure to work with the Intralink team, which has been extremely professional, experienced, and well rounded to do business in Japan as well as being great communicators (English and Japanese). The project team was well resourced with strong and hands on committed individuals supporting the engagement on a broad range of subjects including legal, regulatory, technical, operational or commercial matters. Last the Intralink team was always extremely responsive, flexible and proactive in allocating resources and managing priorities efficiently to support this extremely demanding engagement. We always saw the Intralink team as an integral extension of our team allowing an efficient support in Japan during the course of this long engagement.
We certainly warmly recommend Intralink to ICT companies looking for assistance to enter the Japan market, before recruiting a local team.
