Systems We Use




We have been working with ProWorks for years. Their services are highly appreciated, by our local subsidiary, as well as our head office back in Denmark. What we treasure the most is their understanding of our needs, and the ability to convey complex domestic regulations in a simple, understandable way. Also, on several occasions, they have suggested process improvements, which might reduce their own service time spent. A partner to be trusted, we are happy to recommend them.

Over a six year period, ProWorks supported the growth of our business with a professional, timely and scalable solution covering our accounting, tax, employment and administrative needs. From managing our incorporation in Japan, to supporting us through multiple rounds of venture funding, and enabling the growth of our team to 10 times its initial size, the team were professional and above all reliable. We particularly appreciated their flexibility in adopting our internal software systems, drastically improving communication and enabling efficient workflow controls.

We have worked with PROWORKS Japan for several years now. They have provided payroll, tax and consulting services. Their services are top-notch and they are very timely. Thanks for all you and your team has done for us over the years.

Jason Wood
Americas Controller

ProWorks Japan helped our company get its start in Japan over 6 years ago. Since that time ProWorks has helped our business to grow from 2 people to now over 50 and has always provided the critical outsourced services we have needed. They always go above and beyond to give us outstanding service and have turned into a very trusted partner.

Our business in Japan is growing. While there was regional support, it was time to introduce a disciplined Human Resources professional locally to partner with our people, build leadership capability and ensure the culture of the organisation evolved as the company grew. We reached out to PROWORKS Japan – On-site HR Services because their model provided flexibility, access to experienced resources and a quick and easy process which meant value could be realised immediately. As we continue to work through a change program, an independent partner has been of benefit and we have made great progress towards our people goals.

I needed a place to work when I was in town locally and away from my law practice in Oakland, California. I used ProWorks for nearly two years and was extremely pleased with the accommodations, pleasant staff, and prime location!

I’m going to keep this short and sweet. The ProWorks Ala Moana Center for Business has saved me. I run a videography business and work from home. They have provided a clean and convenient place for me to conduct business with clients at an affordable price. I’ve been unable to find anyone who can compare. Cheers to you!

Next to the reception desk, there is the board room. It is medium sized, perfect for a meeting of 4-6 people.
