Transcosmos Reaches Basic Agreement with Indonesia's Salim Group in Regards to Establishing a Joint Venture Company to Undertake Call Center Business

Tokyo, Japan, Nov 27, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda; TSE First Section: 9715; hereafter, transcosmos) has reached a basic agreement with Indonesia's Salim Group's IT company PT Cyberindo Aditama (Headquarters: Jakarta, Indonesia; President/CEO: Dani Sumarsono, hereinafter, CBN) to establish a joint venture company to run call center business in Indonesia and held a signing ceremony on November 22. They are scheduled to establish PT Transcosmos Indonesia in spring 2013.

Salim Group owns a group of companies such as First Pacific Company Ltd, PT. Indofood Sukses Makmur Tbk, Indofood Agri Resources Ltd, PT. Indomobil Sukses International Tbk and other listed companies in Indonesia, Singapore and the Philippines across a wide range of industries. CBN is an IT core company under Salim Group which runs ISPi 1/4^Internet Service Provideri 1/4%business in the domestic Indonesian market.

transcosmos, starting with its expansion into the U.S. market in 1988, has been working on overseas expansion of its business services. As for the call center services in the local markets, transcosmos expanded its services into South Korea in Year 2000 and into China in 2006, and in more recent years into the western regions. In the future, business development in the ever-growing Asian market will become essential for corporate growth, and especially in ASEAN, its corporate clients' needs are expected to rise. With such background, the decision has been made to establish a call center in Indonesia.

In the Indonesian market, due to the increase in the middle-class, purchasing power and consumption demands have been on the rise, and increased consumption is expected to activate the economy even further.*1 In such an economic environment, transcosmos has speculated that, along with the accelerating needs for call centers in Indonesia, the demands for high quality would grow as well. That led to the basic agreement to establish a joint company with CBN, in an attempt to utilize transcosmos' quality control and operations know-how gained from its experience from providing services in Japan, China, and South Korea. transcosmos hopes to apply its know-how in increasing sales to corporate clients such as operations, human resources development, and call centers and also cost-reduction solutions, and CBN would offer its infrastructure technology and business experience and its know-how in the local market, and the two company together aim at launching operations in the spring of 2013.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
