“Users can benefit from the globally popular online storage SugarSync now localized specifically for the Japanese market,” said Yasuo Mizoguchi, President of BB Softservice. “I believe this will promote Cloud-based software services as core consumer and small business utilities, which is our business philosophy.”

The team will relay customer feature and service feedback and future development input directly back to SugarSync. The goal is to use Japanese user input to achieve better services, software features, and usability.

BBSS and SugarSync Inc. signed a comprehensive business partnership agreement on September 9, 2010. The two companies launched the Japanese site (http://www.sugarsync.jp) and already offer some services including product support via email for free and paid members.
