NRI is a class-leading business consultancy and technology solution firm headquartered in Tokyo. With 50 years of experience in systems and strategies, it has grown from boutique financial IT specialist to Japan's leading consulting and technology solution firm. If you haven't heard of NRI, good news: you've just discovered one of Japan's best-kept secrets! NRI's work helps power many of the global brands consumers and businesses depend on every day.
For multinational companies with a footprint in Asia, NRI is no mystery. In the financial sector, many of its in-house systems have been adopted as standard industry models. NRI's unusual heritage -rooted in business consulting and IT solutions- gives it a unique edge as an innovative business partner. Take one of the core offerings: system integration. NRI not only designs the initial solution; it designs the operational strategies too. This unified approach limits implementation risks inherent in less integrated consulting models.
NRI's origin as an offshoot of Nomura Securities instilled a user-centric mindset from day one that sets it apart from the wider industry. This client-first culture is key to why so many of NRI's business relationships span decades.
As the only major global consulting firm to come out of Japan, NRI is proud of the caliber and craftsmanship of its work. Clients can expect solutions built with the precision and efficiency that define Japanese quality.
NRI has begun a strategic expansion of its footprint beyond Asia, with several acquisitions and partnerships including the integration of global loyalty solution leader Brierley+Partners out of Texas. This investment signals a new phase in NRI's international growth, and a commitment to further expansion abroad. As it stands, NRI's capabilities and reach now span nine countries, with more than 10,000 employees on board!
