This project was quite different from previous 8 overseas ones which were carried out through the International Development Cooperation projects such as KOICA and the Economic Cooperation Promotion Fund.  So to speak, it is the first case directly exported to Thammasat University and finally made a meaningful achievement after waiting for 4 years since March 2018 as introducing TULIP.

Despite the severe situation of COVID-19 crisis, the contract was signed in April 2021 by pushing for an on-line contract, not a face-to-face contract, and the project was implemented remotely using the maximum available means of communication (video conference, e-mail, SMS, etc.) which had never been experienced before.

The driving force that enables to successfully complete the project in such difficult circumstances is the result of CEO Jeong-Ho Choo's early recognition of the importance of overseas markets and his persistent challenging spirit to actively pioneer together with Futurenuri employees.

CEO Jeong-Ho Choo said he plans to open a Thai branch that can provide direct support by employing local Thai personnel in the future for sustainable stable support.  As part of that, he appointed Deok-Young Lee, a former IBMer, and announced his ambition to focus on active customer management and sales.

Also, in terms of solutions, Thammasat University has a strong interest to add a virtual 5th campus to its current 4 campuses, so he also announced a plan to further accelerate the development of solutions using Metaverse, a hot issue in the IT market.
