"I really feel our Osaka and Tokyo offices share the same space because I see and hear everyone every day. People use the word ‘oneness’ to describe a well-functioning team and tonari makes it happen naturally."

Head of Frontier Consulting's West Japan Region
"tonari is very intuitive! I can check the status of an inquiry when I see an employee walk by, and have deeper discussions while looking at documents side by side. I don't need to travel as often as before because we are already in the same office."

in our globalized society, technology has to play a role in enabling natural human connection. we need to explore ways to reduce the environmental costs of air travel, and the time and stress of daily commuting, to be kinder to ourselves and our planet.
the future with tonari is about connecting many places to give people more flexibility for where they work, and how they learn and grow, while also staying close to family and community.
by enabling each of us to be where we want to be, we empower everyone to live and work better, together.
