transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Shibuya Ward, Tokyo; President and COO: Masataka Okuda; Securities code: 9715; hereafter, transcosmos) announced that it has partnered with a leading independent full-service digital agency Geary LSF Group (Headquarters: San Francisco, USA, President & CEO: Daniel Laury, hereafter, Geary LSF) including a minority equity investment. In collaboration with Geary LSF, transcosmos can now provide digital marketing services to the clients who are in or entering into English and European language speaking regions.

Geary LSF is an award-winning independent full-service digital interactive agency established in 1999, serving more than 300+ clients worldwide. The company is ranked in the top 5 largest US Independent Search Agencies according to the latest AdAge survey and has been a three-time recipient of the prestigious Inc 5000 award of America’s Fastest Growing Companies. Geary LSF has five offices in the US, including headquarters in San Francisco and major operations in San Diego, and two offices in Europe, Paris and Belgrade, covering English and European language speaking regions. Geary LSF provides comprehensive digital marketing services from web site development to SEO, SEM, display, digital marketing stratgy, social media marketing and other services.

transcosmos has been striving to provide services of the equal quality and standards as those provided in the Japanese domestic market for the clients even overseas, but until recently transcosmos’ global business expansion was mainly in Korean and Chinese market. However, in December 2011, transcosmos partnered with a UK headquartered call center/BPO company, Merlin (Official company name: Merlin Information Systems Group Limited) with a minority investment to enhance business operations in English and European language speaking regions as well.

The partnership with Geary LSF this time is to further enhance transcosmos’ global business and operational capabilities. Having both call center services of Merlin and digital marketing services of Geary LSF covering English and European language speaking regions we are now able to provide services to optimize all the customer contact points possible between our client companies and their customers. Geary LSF’s digital marketing capabilities are covering wide range of services such as Internet advertisement, SEM, SEO, ecommerce site/Web site/Mobile site development, email marketing, social media marketing, and analytics -- the same comprehensive services provided by transcosmos in Japan. This is one of the main reasons for the two companies to partner this time enabling to provide seamless services to our client companies across different countries. There has been already number of requests from Japanese companies who have a presence in or planning to enter the U.S. market as well as North American and European countries.
