Akila is excited to unveil our new partnership with Index Facilities, a division of the Index Group in Japan. This alliance signifies a key milestone in our mission to offer transformative Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions to global businesses. With this collaboration, we aspire to broaden the accessibility of our state-of-the-art software solutions, empowering diverse organizations across various industries.

Spotlight on Index

Index Facilities is recognized for its proficiency in built environment projects and overall facility management. Boasting an impressive track record in project management, Index Group contributes invaluable insights and boasts a robust network in its field. Their dedication to rendering exceptional customer experiences harmonizes seamlessly with our core values.

One key concept that drives Index Group’s corporate culture is “SHIKKAI”, a term originating from the Japanese kimono industry. It describes an individual who takes on the multiple roles of producer, creative director, and sales and production manager to coordinate the approximately 40 processes involved in creating a kimono from a roll of cloth.

For Index, SHIKKAI represents respect for diversity across genders, ages, races, cultures, regions, and occupations. It is their embodiment of Japanese-style project management, characterized by optimum resource allocation, total coordination, and a strong commitment to compassion, consideration, and integrity.

Mr. Kimikazu Uemura stated that Index is “honored to be partnering with a reputable and forward-thinking company like Akila. Together, I am confident that we can create a positive impact for customers, such as cost optimization for energy management, compliance with regulations, and visualization in Facilities Management throughout various industries. As a result, our effort will contribute to promoting carbon neutrality and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Japan by reducing the carbon footprint of facilities.”

Our partnership with Index Group strengthens our ability to cater to the unique requirements of businesses in Japan. Their local expertise allows us to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by organizations in that region, ensuring our software solutions are tailored to meet their specific needs. Together, we aim to create a powerful synergy that drives success and provides a competitive advantage to our customers.
