Conditions of the Business Environment

In the current rapidly-changing environment, practices enabling sustainable strategic planning are particularly sought after.
On the other hand, accounting, procurement and customer management are being the cornerstones of corporate strategy, and that is the reason why quite a few companies are being challenged to improve inefficient business processes.

We develop Business Support Systems

In order to help companies tackle effectively the critical challenges they are facing today, Axis International, instead of intervening indirectly in their business through external consulting, will be advising the CIO (Chief Information Officer) and the persons in charge of the system and then performing the required improvements along with experts in Strategy, Technology, Business and Change Management.
This makes it possible to build cutting-edge technology solutions to fully support the changes that your Business requires.

We put the emphasis on Customers' point of view

When we are building a system at Axis International, we pursue the concept of "The Shape that should be achieved". This means a system which is tailored for your Business objectives and which encompasses your expressed needs and then surpasses them by including hidden current or future needs.

Even if customers would have systems that they do not fully use at the moment, if right at the beginning a scalable and extensible system is being built, even in the case when Staff is growing or Business is expanding rapidly, it would not be required to ship a whole new system to address these changes, allowing a very cost-effective service. In order to realize highly efficient solutions, we have to be able to have insights of what the future Business of our customers will be from the analysis of the Business they do now. And that is without saying that the best method remains by proposing a solution that is not being bound by past results, that is to say we have to start to think from 0 of what the real needs of our customers are and looking from an ideal point of view of what the Business ought to be.

While I was in college, I met with a schoolmate of mine who was the president of a semi-conductor company.

Ltd, I experienced all kinds of organization scale as a network engineer, implementing and troobleshooting Cisco Systems. In addition, I worked as an accountant for major integrators to organize the needs of various customers, while performing the team's management. Depending on each project, I had to promote systems introduction.

I then stepped in the world of international consulting in high-tech communication. At Accenture, as a network service line manager (in a global team), I was in charge of IT strategy and planning with a focus on information and communication infrastructure.
Through IT due diligence assessment of Mergers & Acquisitions deals, backbone network system improvement plans, etc, I experienced consulting, implementation and the general mechanisms of a company-wide strategy.

Based on the philosophy of "Strategy through achievements", this means that I can rely on all the technical skills I have cultivated so far to deploy Business solutions that take advantage of the strengths and culture of my customers.
