"Powered Communications provides diverse, highly integrated communications and business development services. I believe this diversified approach comes from their experience working in-house and their understanding of the process of making smart business decisions. From my experience, I believe Powered Communications is the best agency to choose for early to mid-stage foreign IT companies to enter, gaining presence, and expand their business in the Japanese market."

Former Representative Director and President, Lenovo Enterprise Solutions
"Powered Communications has been supporting Sumo Logic from before the establishment of our local Japan entity in October 2018, and has continuously played a critical role in our success in one of the world`s most challenging IT markets. Powered has not only provided marketing support, but has also assisted our sales expansion by providing both SDR and BDR support as well. Sumo Logic Japan`s success would not have been possible without Powered Communications’ seasoned management judgement and execution ability."

"I met Kyo, the Managing Director of Powered Communications, when I was with Tealium. Powered Communications has done great work in launching Tealium and Digital Velocity Japan, Tealium's annual corporate event. Kyo was a consultant, but acted as Tealium Japan's marketing director and put together not only the internal team but communicated with partners/clients as well. Powered Communications’ proven abilities gave me no hesitation in contacting Kyo for the Japan launch of Datadog."
