Press release: Announcing the collaboration between barterfli and Diixi

Announcing the collaboration between barterfli and Diixi, offer opportunities to companies in ASEAN and Japan seeking overseas expansion

barterfli Holdings Pte Ltd (“barterfli”) and Diixi Pte Ltd (“Diixi”) is pleased to announce a partnership to introduce a new service to provide business matching expertise to bring together companies and business opportunities in ASEAN and Japan.

The partnership brings together unique strengths of both companies; from
Diixi, one of the largest crowdsourcing services in Japan and from barterfli, the widest aggregation of independently verified business communities ever-achieved to date in the region.

barterfli and Diixi will offer opportunities to companies in ASEAN and Japan seeking overseas expansion or collaborations for projects, investments or technology exchange. This business matching service, called CrowdSekai on Diixi network and ASEAN-Japan bconnect on barterfli network, will identify prospective businesses that fits the requirements, qualify them based on pre-determined criteria and connect them with one other.

As an extension of this service, barterfli and Diixi will also be offering business concierge service at an attractive monthly subscription fee. With this business concierge service, subscribers (individuals or corporations) can seek advice about overseas business development and starting a new business.

According to Mr Teng Theng Dar, Chairman of barterfli, “With the onset of
AEC 2015, this is a much-needed service for businesses, especially SMEs, to reach out across borders cost-effectively and quickly. By using barterfli’s and Diixi¹s extensive business network, we are enabling companies to identify, connect and establish credible business contacts across ASEAN and
Japan and seek growth opportunities”.

Mr Noritaka Kobayashi, Founder and CEO Diixi, adds “Today, overseas expansion creates a big boom from big companies to small-middle companies, start-ups.
However, it is still inefficient because of a lack of know-how, and requires companies to invest a great deal of cost and time. The introduction of our crowdsourcing approach reduces cost and time while increasing the quality and range of contacts and expertise in ASEAN and Japan”.

The service will be launched in phases, starting in April 2015.
