NEC Australia, WingArc1st and Genix Ventures take Japanese analytics global

Melbourne – 17 March 2016 - NEC Australia, a leading technology services company, is partnering with WingArc1st, the market leader in Japan for business intelligence, document assembly and print management solutions as well as Melbourne-based IT solutions provider, Genix Ventures, to prepare for the global launch of a data analytics platform that will offer enterprise customers a new standard in real time business intelligence.

The partnership will deliver more competition to the Australian market for business intelligence software and transform the WingArc1st product line for English-speaking markets worldwide. NEC Australia's Melbourne headquarters will serve as the home base for the rollout of WingArc1st technology to the global market.

WingArc1st, which is headquartered in Tokyo, develops analytics software used by over 20,000 customers. Its SVF platform for enterprise output management, and BI dashboard, MotionBoard, are optimised for Oracle’s Exastack portfolio of embedded systems.

NEC Australia and its technology partner Genix Ventures, an Australia-based business process automation specialist, will jointly work with WingArc1st to globalise its analytics platform, business intelligence dashboard as part of an integrated suite of business process automation solutions.

The arrangement leverages the 2015 Japan-Australia Economic Partnership Agreement (JAEPA) that facilitates trade with Australia’s second-largest trading partner, Japan.

“NEC Australia strives for innovation when engaging with Australian customers and this partnership demonstrates our sense of responsibility to ensuring we can contribute globally,” said NEC Australia Managing Director, Tetsuro Akagi.

Yuichi Kimura, Corporate Director of WingArc1st said: “For us at WingArc1st, this partnership is an important step towards globalising our software.”

“We recognise Melbourne as a centre of excellence in IT and we will be uniquely positioned not only to launch our products in the Australian market but to integrate our software into the market leading solutions that are being developed by NEC Australia and Genix,” he added.

The partnership between NEC Australia and WingArc1st opens up new opportunities for Australian tech entrepreneurs.

Steven Godinho, Genix Ventures founder and Managing Director, believes the WingArc1st offerings will open up new ways of working with information. "Our work with government departments and large corporates has made it clear that end-users need the ability to access and analyse data in real time. WingArc1st has more than 20,000 customers and their products advance the transition to user-driven analysis of business information."

"Our customers want reasonably priced Business Intelligence solutions – the MotionBoard BI tool fulfills this need - and WingArc1st's SVF is by far the most advanced document assembly tool available worldwide."
