We also have a nationwide sales network of 94 bases, and have built a sales support base for our approximately 19,000 sales partners that meets the diverse needs and business customs of each industry and area. Another major feature of the DIS Group is its ability to provide one-stop technical and logistics services.

In other words, DIS is involved in at least one out of Three PCs distributed to domestic corporations. DIS promotes its business by focusing on the terminals that provide the interface between IT and people.
