Independent Network Service linking international locations
now available in Brazil for better convenience
V-cube, Inc. (HQ: Meguro-ku, Tokyo, President & CEO: Naoaki Mashita, hereon as V-cube) together with Pioneer VC, Inc. (Head office: Meguro-ku Tokyo, President & CEO: Kiyoshi Hara, hereon as Pioneer VC) have established a new connection point in Brazil on Friday, 18 September 2015. This point serves the independent network used in services including V-CUBE Translator, V-CUBE Meeting, V-CUBE Assist and xSync Prime Collaboration to enable strong inter-connectivity between international locations.
Brazil is expected to see a large number of visitors during the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and V-cube has taken the initiative to be able to better provide through its remote interpretation service V-CUBE Translator a convenience to travelers who do not speak the Portuguese language. This would penetrate the barrier of language for travelers in scenes of accommodation and arranging for transportation, as well as unforeseen medical-related situations. The service is available 24/7, which eliminates the time-difference factor, so travelers are able use it at anytime from anywhere.
For those in the country due to work-related reasons, dealing with local clients and international conferences can now be done through V-CUBE Meeting, V-CUBE Assist and xSync Prime Collaboration with minimal lags and disruptions, allowing for smooth and stress-free exchanges.
V-cube and Pioneer VC will continue to work hand-in-hand to constantly innovate and improve for the convenience of users.
