BUSINESS OVERVIEW

Past & Present


Past-&-PresentPast-&-Present
We are a Japanese publicly-traded company that was founded in February 1996 and headquartered in Tokyo,Japan. Our stock was listed in March 2015 on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. We aspire to create easy-to-read, easy-to-understand,easy-to-input user interfaces. In the pursuit to make websites much more convenient, we pay attention to looking at user-friendliness from the enduser’s perspective first.

We provide website optimization services in Japan as well as web solutions and mobile applications that can be managed from web-based back offices (i.e. via the cloud).
We have internally developed eight different cloud-based software. These are the core technologies of our business and are patented in Japan as well as in the United States,Singapore and Brunei.

Not only does each software focus on user-friendliness,but each also helps website owners improve their conversion rate via website optimization technology(i.e. web marketing and the data management platform(DMP)). The conversion rate is the proportion of visitors who take action that goes beyond a casual website visit. As an example to online businesses, a successful conversion would be the sale of a product to a consumer whose interest in the item was initially sparked by clicking a banner advertisement or would also be an end-user subscribing to an online newsletter.

We have a stable business model due to the monthly subscription fees from a strong client base for the use of these software. This is our main source of revenue. Across our various clients and industries, we have accumulated extensive expertise in raising the conversion rate on websites.

Future


The future in the cloud-based software industry looks promising, as well as our future, as retail trade and mobile shopping is a rapidly growing industry.

We also aim to be the lead website optimization service company in Japan that automatically provides userfriendly features while maximizing the efficiency of existing websites and content.

To achieve this, we have created a specialized department called Showcase Lab and plan to invest in other technology companies.

We constantly work on developing and offering services that provide excellent value and performance in a bid to continue to grow together in the future with clients.

Growth Strategy


In the future, we will expand our data management platforms (DMP) services as well as develop other services/mechanisms that reach end-users more efficiently. The domain of smartphone-ready online services and online marketing, in Japan and Asia, is still in the course of development.

We will continue to further expand our cloud services based on our website optimization technologies in more regions/industries.

We expect our business to continually expand which will see increased sales in the E-Marketing, Data Marketing and Web Solutions departments.

In the year 2025, sales are projected to reach 100 billion JPY and ordinary income 10 billion JPY. We anticipate an increase in headcount particularly in the sales department to strengthen the sales of new services.

In January 2016, we created Showcase Lab, a specialized department to target our long-term goals.

This department carries out research and development activities focused on advancing technology and as such advancing our services to our clients. As more and more companies are offering online services and the uses of the internet continues to grow, the need for business services integrated with technology is rising rapidly. As many of our clients are banks or financial institutions, the need for new financial services through the integration of technology has become more critical for us to provide.

Our Showcase Lab department will work on developing these services and will also focus on the improvement of website convenience and website end-users’ conversion rate to satisfy the needs of our clients.

We also plan on investing in new business area such as Financial Technology or Internet of Things whether through partnership or acquisition.
