  • Natural MicroSystems Establishes Japan Subsidiary
  • July 7, 1998 (TOKYO) -- Natural MicroSystems of the United States, a hardware/software vendor for computer telephony integration (CTI), announced that it established Natural MicroSystems K.K. in Japan.
    The company set up the Japanese unit because it expects future growth of the CTI market following deregulation of Japan's telecommunications business. It was registered as a Japanese company on June 17, and is capitalized at 10 million yen (US$71,500 ).

    Yoshinobu Nakamura serves as president of the Japan unit. He had worked as general manager for Japan at Natural MicroSystems of the United States. The company started with a staff of two, and it plans to increase the number of employees to ten in a month by adding technical support staff. No sales targets were revealed.

    The company intends to "aim for a 50 percent market share in the Japanese CTI market," said Robert Schechter, president, chairman and CEO of Natural MicroSystems.

    Natural MicroSystems developed the Alliance Generation series, a digital signal processing board for computer telephony for Windows NT, OS/2, and PC UNIX, as well as FUSION, an Internet telephony building system.

    In Japan, NTT International Corp. buys products from Natural MicroSystems and markets a group of digital signal processing boards under the VOCALNET product name.
