  • JBS has been providing true work style reforms to companies through its Work Style Reform Service* series which supports companies from the initial stages of considering measures through to adopting a new work style within a company, visualizing the effects of measures, to actually making the reforms take root.

    The reason for JBS winning this award is as follows.

    Against the backdrop of recent challenges comprising not only system “implementation,” but system “use and adoption,” JBS launched an expert Adoption & Change Management team to provide more detailed support for customers’ requests. Additionally, at an early stage JBS advanced the acquisition of Prosci® change management practitioner certification, a global standard change management certification, and 12 certified consultants work to support companies’ system use and adoption. As a result, JBS has realized the adoption of Microsoft Teams at over thirty companies already.

    Microsoft Japan gave JBS the following endorsement for this award.

    Microsoft Japan wholeheartedly congratulates JBS on winning the Microsoft Japan Partner of the Year 2020 Adoption & Change Management Award.
    JBS has worked side by side with many Japanese companies and users to advance the use and adoption of Microsoft Teams. In the “new normal” in which remote work will be mainstream, Microsoft Teams is essential for a work style that maintains and improves productivity. We hope that JBS will take this award as an incentive to harness their experience and knowledge to date to further develop activities to adopt Microsoft Teams as a basis for communication and collaboration for companies.
    Going forward Microsoft Japan will continue to contribute to advancing customers’ digital transformation through a strong partnership with Japan Business Systems, Inc.
