It’s been a busy year for Sprinklr. Not long after the company acquired Get Satisfaction, they announced that they are expanding into Japan.

Sprinklr Japan will have Tokyo headquarters and allow the company to closer relate with Japanese enterprises, providing more local support for clients with a significant presence in Japan. This is a joint venture between majority shareholder Sprinklr, PIPED BITS, Recruit Strategic Partners and Suneight Investment Co., Ltd. PIPED BITS, Recruit and Suneight have all invested ¥1 billion in Series A funding in Sprinklr Japan.

Sprinklr CEO Ragy Thomas discussed this new venture:

The connected, empowered consumer is a universal transformation that requires a truly global solution. By 2016, the number of Facebook users in Japan is expected to reach 30.6 million. More than 200 of the world’s largest global public companies are headquartered in Japan. We are thrilled to expand to Japan and help these companies create social experiences that reduce costs, drive revenue, and increase engagement with their highly connected, mobile-centric customers.
