Brief History

Founded in 1987, the vision for PSPINC was to bring U.S. software technology to Japan by licensing and localizing software products.

In the 1990s, we shifted our focus and business model to offer proprietary software applications and internet services to businesses of all sizes. Our very first web server went live in January 1996. We opened our first data center in 2000 to provide superior reliability and security for our clients.

Since then, PSPINC has grown into a team of skilled software designers, web and graphic designers, programmers, account managers and customer service support to keep up with the ever-changing, exciting world of online business.

Our Leadership

Ken Uchikura, Chairman & Founder
Ken Uchikura founded PSPINC in his apartment on Mercer Island, Washington in 1987. Since establishing PSPINC, Ken has expanded the company from its initial focus of licensing and localizing Japanese software products to become a full-service web solutions company. Through the years, he has led the research and development of various popular web-based services and server applications. Under his direction, the company has grown to provide these services in the U.S. and Japanese markets. In 2009, Mr. Ken moved into the position of Chairman in order to pursue other business ventures and projects, and to continue perfecting his golf game.

Mayumi Nakamura, President & CEO
Mayumi Nakamura graduated from Portland State University with a B.A. in English in 1990 and a Masters of Business Administration in 1992. After graduating, she joined PSPINC in 1993 as an Export Sales Manager. Over the years at PSPINC, Mayumi has worked and supported various departments. Her role as Vice President and COO allowed her to direct the daily operations of the business and develop more opportunities in the domestic U.S. market.

On July 1, 2009, Mayumi assumed the office of President & CEO of PSPINC and will continue to manage and direct the overall future growth of the company in the coming years.

Community Involvement

PSPINC donates free web hosting and web development to more than a dozen nonprofit organizations, utilizing our best resources to benefit our community partners. You can learn more on our community page.

In 2011, PSPINC matched donations for the Japan Tsunami Relief Fund, which raised more than $70,000 to help aid disaster victims. PSP Children’s Foundation was established shortly thereafter in 2012 to provide programs and opportunities for children who are victims of natural disasters.

Green Business

PSPINC is committed to reducing our carbon footprint. In the computer industry we consume a lot of energy, and while we can’t run our servers without computers, we can at least compensate for what we use up by being as green as possible in other areas of business. We strive to offer the greenest technology and services possible without compromising our commitment to provide secure and stable services to our clients.

PSPINC has been recognized every year since 2008 as one of King County’s Best Workplaces for Recycling and Waste Reduction, earning us a place on their Honor Roll for our company-wide recycling and waste reduction efforts. PSPINC is also a proud participant of Puget Sound Energy’s Green Power Program and offers a PC recycling program to ensure the safe disposal and recycling of old hardware.

The company fleet is comprised of fuel-efficient vehicles, including a fully electric Nissan Leaf. We have also taken steps to go paperless in our office as well as upgrade the energy-efficiency of our building.

Office Culture & PSPups

“We bought our building for the dogs,” admits Ken. And when you walk into PSPINC’s Bellevue office, you will likely be greeted by a few of them. We take our work very seriously, but we also know the value of doing it in a comfortable environment.

At PSPINC, we pride ourselves on hard work, mutual respect for one another, and making time for a little fun. We are also proud to be one of the largest and fastest-growing minority-owned businesses in the region, having earned the title of U.W. William D. Bradford Minority Business of the Year in 2014.

We look forward to continued success, along with our clients, growing with the changing times, technology, and business needs of our modern society.

PSPINC Children's Foundation Press Release



Pacific Software Publishing, Inc. (PSPinc) in Bellevue, Washington, will celebrate its 30th year in business in 2017. To commemorate the anniversary, PSPinc plans to cover all expenses for a golf tournament fundraising event hosted by its non-profit organization PSP Children’s Foundation (PSPCF) in partnership with UW Foster School of Business. The event will take place on Monday, August 21, 2017 at the exclusive members-only Aldarra Golf Club, giving the public a rare opportunity to play on a course designed by world-renowned course designer Tom Fazio.

The money PSPCF raises from attendance fees and hole sponsorships will benefit students at the University of Washington Foster School of Business who have a high degree of financial need. With the help of donors and sponsors, PSPCF will grant scholarships to several dedicated students in an effort to help them succeed and become the next great business leaders of the future.

The idea for this scholarship fundraising event was born out of a desire to help young people who have overcome difficult circumstances. In 2011, when the massive earthquake and tsunami hit Japan, the employees of PSPinc were deeply affected. They raised over $75k in matching funds in the immediate aftermath, with the intent to help children directly impacted by the disaster. PSPinc created the “Experience Summer in Seattle” program which brought groups of Japanese students affected by the disaster to Seattle to experience the Pacific Northwest for two weeks. In the course of creating and running the Experience Summer In Seattle program, PSP Children’s Foundation (PSPCF) was formed, achieving 501(c)(3) status on September 13, 2012.

PSPCF’s mission is to continue offering aid to young people through unique programs and scholarships, and bring hope for the future. Please visit to learn more about PSPCF, and follow our Facebook page for updates:

Sample Blog Revision

The Power of Video in Modern-Day Marketing

I have to admit, I hate reading long articles, or wordy manuals. I just don’t have the time. So, what do I do? I go in search of a video that will show me the same information. It’s usually a condensed, more visually appealing way to get the information I want, and therefore I retain the information more easily.

There are many stats that show the rising popularity of online videos, which we’ll cover below. Some research indicates videos account for three-fourths of all internet traffic. More than half of us are searching online for videos.

What does this mean for your business? It’s important to think critically about how you can include video into your online marketing efforts. Let’s cover some basics this month, to get you started. Here are some stats you may find interesting:

  • YouTube has over a billion users.
  • 8 billion video views from 500 million Facebook users occur on average daily.
  • In the US, on average, people will watch 1 hour worth of video on digital devices daily.
  • About half of the videos are 2 minutes or less.
  • Most common topics are how-tos, testimonials, demos, and explanations.
  • More than three-fourths of viewers will finish an entire video.

No matter the size of your business, you should be including video as part of your online marketing strategy if you want to get more traffic online. Thanks to more readily available tools, these videos can be produced at a reasonable to no cost.  Like any other online content, however, it will take your time and effort, and creativity, to be successful.

History of PSPINC

Founded in 1987 on Mercer Island, Washington by Ken Uchikura, the vision for PSPinc was to help the Japanese market grow by popularizing the PC in Japan using already established U.S. software technology. At the time, the use of personal computers was minimal in Japan, in part because software solutions built in the U.S. were limited to domestic machines – unfit for Japanese hardware and language requirements. Ken sought to fix this disconnect and close the technology gap between the two countries.

For the next 10 years, PSPinc licensed, exported and published U.S. software for Japan from our home office in the States. We provided translation and adaptation services to American software companies that wanted to enter the Japanese PC market. At the same time, we published KanjiWORD, a Japanese-language word processing software, enabling Japanese language capabilities for users of non-Japanese versions of Windows. Following that success, we published KanjiKIT, which became the standard software for using Japanese tools on non-Japanese versions of Windows.

In the 1990s, PSPinc shifted focus to offer proprietary software applications and internet services to businesses of all sizes domestically and abroad. In 1995, Ken brought a T1 internet line into PSPinc’s office, which was followed by the first web server going online in January 1996. A data center was built in 2000 to provide reliable, secure web and email hosting services to PSPinc’s first clients seeking a presence on the web. With that, websites were developed for companies such as Tully’s Coffee, Pro Golf Discounts and Park Place LTD in Washington.

Our web services eventually outgrew our internal data center so we moved into the data center at Fisher Plaza in July 2007, where it currently resides and is overseen by our dedicated server team. In 2009, PSPinc broke ground on a secondary data center at our Bellevue headquarters, giving us the capacity to service more than 40,000 customers. That same year, Ken Uchikura stepped down as CEO to focus on research and development for the future, naming Mayumi Nakamura as his successor, and she remains PSPinc’s current President and CEO.

Over the years, we have grown into a team of skilled software designers, web and graphic designers, programmers, account managers, customer service and support to keep up with the ever-changing world of online business.

PSPINC 30th Anniversary Press Release



From Humble Beginnings to Global Web Solutions:

Pacific Software Publishing, Inc. Celebrates 30th Anniversary

Bellevue, Wash (Date, 2017). Pacific Software Publishing, Inc. (PSPinc) is proud to celebrate its 30th anniversary in business, having rapidly grown with the age of internet these past three decades.

What started as a one-man operation in 1987, developing software and servicing a handful of clients from a small apartment on Mercer Island, founder Kenichi (Ken) Uchikura’s company has since grown into a full-service web hosting, design and marketing solutions company now headquartered in Bellevue, Wash. The company employs 50 people and provides service to over 40,000 clients worldwide. It has remote offices in San Diego and Los Angeles.

In the late 80s, PSPinc provided translation and adaptation services to American software companies that wanted to enter the Japanese PC market. At that time, the use of personal computers was minimal in Japan, in part because popular software solutions built in the U.S. were unfit for Japanese hardware and language requirements. Ken sought to fix this disconnect and succeeded in building and licensing language word processing software that closed the technology gap between the two countries.

By 1995, Ken brought an Internet line into PSPinc, which was followed by the first server in 1996. A data center was built in 2000, allowing PSPinc to provide secure web and email hosting services to clients such as Tully’s Coffee, Pro Golf Discounts and Park Place LTD in Washington.

Today, PSPinc has grown into a team of highly skilled software designers, web developers, graphic designers, programmers, account managers, as well as customer service and support teams. In 2009, Ken stepped down as President and CEO, naming Mayumi Nakamura his successor, but he remains at PSPinc in a research and development role, focusing on future innovation and technology that will take them into the next 30 years.

In addition, PSPinc celebrates its good-standing reputation as a green company, a minority-owned company and a charitable company, earning many community awards over the years.
