Mr Akiyama from INFORICH also shared information on “ChargeSPOT” future expansion. “ChargeSPOT”, which launched in Japan in 2018, is currently deployed in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Mainland China, Thailand, Singapore, Macau and is expanding to Vietnam. By the end of 2025 the service is expected to expand to two more territories, enabling further growth.

To conclude, Mr Kaji, Director of Global Business at INFORICH, highlighted the collaborative campaign with “Monster Hunter Now” that started on April 29th.

This campaign is an initiative that provides a new experience to users by combining gaming elements and “ChargeSPOT”.

INFORICH plans to continue expanding its “ChargeSPOT” footprint globally while developing similar new initiatives.
