Esprow Pte. Ltd., one of the leading providers of enterprise testing technology for the financial markets, continues its expansion with the opening of a new Japanese office.
The new office in Tokyo, will provide a base for Esprow’s sales, support and development operations in the country, and will give the company a platform for further Japanese growth and product localization, according to Managing Director, Francesco Lo Conte, who heads up the Japanese team.
“Esprow has invested considerably during the past four years to build automated testing solutions around financial enterprises’ most pressing requirements. Esprow ETP Studio (previously Nozomi), our testing tool for FIX and multi-protocol systems, is fast becoming the software of choice for testing teams, whether in the development, QA, support or on-boarding departments,” said Lo Conte. “Due to the company’s increasing demand in Japan, in part due to some of the largest domestic brokers already utilizing our technology, the new office will enable us to support our Japanese customer base and to pursue new business opportunities on a local level”.
He added: "Our past investment in Japan generated excellent results for our business; opening this office shows our long-term commitment to building closer working relationships with our current and future clients in the country."
Esprow’s revenues and geographical footprint have increased significantly year over year since it was founded in Singapore in 2008. In addition to its new Tokyo office, it has its headquarters in Singapore, a branch in Hong Kong and a presence in London. Esprow’s Japanese entity is a wholly owned kabushiki gaisha enterprise (Esprow KK).
