Setting foot in the Japanese market as a foreign company is more than challenging, especially in the technology sector. NNG, a global automotive software provider, first started working on an automotive navigation project in the country back in 2009. Throughout the years, a number of other projects followed that allowed the company to obtain valuable experience in this highly challenging market.
Fujitsu Ten, a Japanese leader in the field of automotive electronics manufacturing, has been NNG's first strategic partner in this journey. A great milestone of this ongoing cooperation is automotive navigation provider NNG receiving a recognition on Fujitsu Ten's annual Supplier Awards in 2017, for the second time – the first being in 2014.
"As the only foreign company amongst the awarded, we are honored and proud to receive such acknowledgement from our longtime partner. Japan has been a key focus for NNG, where we did a great deal of learning, and we are happy to see our efforts recognized. This award will serve as an inspiration for us to carry on our commitment to the Japanese market and provide exceptional solutions for local drivers" – said Giles Shrimpton, CEO of NNG.
