The adoption of network systems and the internet in business in the 1990s created a huge demand for IT engineers. To satisfy this demand, Yukiyoshi Watanabe, ISF NET’s founder, implemented two bold strategies.
The first was to develop in-house talent by hiring and training people with no background in IT, but who had a strong desire to pursue a career in the sector. The second move was to convince clients to accept these inexperienced but skilled engineers as service members. This was achieved by offering low-cost IT talent and services, as well as giving clients the option of hiring ISF NET’s engineers as their own permanent employees should they be satisfied with their skills and performance.
As a result of these strategies, ISF NET grew from five founding members to a workforce of over 600 employees in its first five years. As of June 2023, ISF NET have a roster of over 2,000 engineers who work across Japan and Asia.
Our vision for the future lies down two parallel roads. On the first road, we will expand our operations globally. ISF NET’s new office in Singapore will be a hub for developing our business in South East Asia and a stepping stone for expansion into Europe and America. The second road will lead us to greater workforce diversity, creating secure and stable jobs for more people from different backgrounds, and providing working conditions that will continuously improve through innovation.
Our journey down both these roads will require a robust global management structure and ever stronger ties with our clients and partners. ISF NET is well on its way to becoming both a global IT powerhouse, and a role model for workforce diversity and excellence in working conditions.
At ISF NET, we provide the highest quality customer care with customized services to meet your specific needs. What sets us apart is the accredited in-house training that all our engineers undergo before each project which includes business manners, ethics and communication skills development.
