Clients Testimonials

"Excellent service!

We have experienced excellent service by competent people to successfully start our operational business from day one. HTM has provided us with a tailor made order processing system and online store. They professionally manage the interfaces with our online store, payment gateway, and our 3rd party logistic providers.

When we had an issue with our payment gateway vendor, HTM found and implemented an alternative immediately to ensure our sales remained uninterrupted. Thanks to having HTM on our team we have never had any sleepless nights!"

" HTM is an integral part of our Japan business

Once Samsonite formed and registered its new subsidiary in Japan, HTM was the perfect resource for the back office, payroll, and accounting functions that we needed to begin daily operations and account for and report the results on the same timetable and in the same format required of all Samsonite subsidiaries.

In addition to the above, HTM worked with other local firms and professionals in the accounting, tax, legal, and banking areas, and provided excellent references for the many other services Samsonite required during these early stages. HTM's bilingual staff are well trained in western-style financial reporting and budgeting and the tight deadlines multinational companies require."

" Very familiar with the many issues associated with the Japanese business operations

I have known Bill Attridge and his company, High Technology Management, for over 8 years. During that period Micrion Corporation has used HTM to provide administrative support to and financial management of our subsidiary company, Micrion Japan. HTM is a very competent company in this area and Micrion has always been fully satisfied with the work HTM has done for us. Bill Attridge is very familiar with the many issues associated with Japanese business operations and has provided excellent advice to Micrion on topics such as recruitment, compensation, taxes, and business development. His personal experience in Japan spans approximately 20 years and Bill possesses an excellent understanding of Japanese business practices and culture. I highly recommend Bill and HTM."

" An integral part of the very successful start-up in Japan

The involvement of Bill Attridge and HTM were an integral part of the very successful start-up in Japan establishing the business structure and systems used to manage the business. The efficiency of the sales and support functions were increased dramatically (greater than 5 times) while the sales increased rapidly and very profitably through the involvement of the HTM team.The roles of HTM were many during the relationship: consultant, advisor, systems analyst, systems administrator, mentor, co-manager, manager, member of the Japanese subsidiary Board. Bill demonstrated the highest values and very hard work ethics that resulted in an unusually strong and successful subsidiary for an American company in Japan."

" We always felt in control

We used HTM for our accounting, payroll, taxes, and financial reporting. They offered advice when needed, yet we always felt in control. Once we got going, HTM worked directly with the Japanese authorities and our headquarters, letting me focus time and energy on building the business."

" A model for international consultants

Your analysis and report on our situation and your recommendations of what needs to be done should be used as a model for international consultants. It is clear, concise, shows careful thought and explains exactly what we need to do next. Out past results in Japan have been very poor—with this report we finally can see what is needed and how to accomplish it."
