Expanding local services for automakers and automotive suppliers

Fremont, Calif. – October 24, 2018 – Excelfore, an enabler of smart mobility networks, announced that it has opened a new customer solutions support office in Tokyo, Japan. This expands Excelfore’s presence in Japan, adding to its existing engineering development center in Tokyo.

This new solutions center will strengthen Excelfore’s customer support capabilities in Japan, enabling fast, expert support to local carmakers and automotive suppliers.  Japan is among the world’s largest automotive producing nations, with 9.7 million cars and commercial vehicles produced in 20171.

Shrinath Acharya, CEO at Excelfore, said, “We have an experienced engineering team in Tokyo that has been doing advanced development in automotive networking since 2012. The objective of this newly-established facility is to improve our capability to serve new and existing customers in this key automotive market. We see Japan as an important region for innovation in automotive technology, and by investing in expert local support we aim to further develop our presence and reputation as a strong player in smart mobility network solutions.”

Headquartered in Silicon Valley, USA, Excelfore creates innovative middleware solutions for in-vehicle and vehicle-to-cloud smart mobility networks. The Excelfore eSync™ system, for example, enables carmakers to deliver Over-the-Air (OTA) software updates to vehicles and remotely retrieve valuable operating data from the various electronic devices in cars, for predictive maintenance, troubleshooting, and overall improved vehicle health. This up-and-coming technology significantly mitigates expensive and inconvenient vehicle recalls, which are estimated to have cost car makers $3 billion for software upgrades in the USA alone in 2016.
