Message from the President
Thank you very much for your continued support and patronage.
Today, all companies face uncertain and abrupt changes in their business environment, such as diversified customer needs, transformations in the industry landscape and accelerated global competition due to the saturation of the domestic market.
Our corporate group mainly operates within the domain of corporate structuring, in which innovative and advanced technologies such as the IoT (Internet of Things), AI (artificial intelligence) and RPA (robotic process automation) are beginning to serve as the new social infrastructure. Expectations and demand for IT are increasing. As clients’ needs shift away from ownership in favor of utilization, the move to service-oriented businesses is advancing, as exemplified by the cloud. Technological advances are leading to the coming era of accelerated business innovations, such as the creation of new client value, shift in the business model, development of new business and differentiation of existing businesses.
Our Group developed a medium-term business plan for the period starting from the fiscal year ending in March 2017 (48th term ) and has taken many different actions accordingly. As a result, our project for the development of a large-scale system, a pending issue, has been completed and started operation, contributing significantly to our performance. The development of our business foundation has consistently progressed, laying the basis for our continued growth, for example, through the encouragement of research, application of advanced technologies and global development of the HULFT business. This fiscal year, we have introduced refinancing to improve our financial standing and have pushed forward with the selection and consolidation of our management resources by transferring the stocks of Fess Co., Ltd.
Meanwhile, we are aware that our initiatives for an open and creative organizational climate are insufficient, although some achievements have been generated through the renovation of our personnel system and the transfer of our head office function. Activities for the further promotion of this corporate climate reform must continue.
Amid these facts, we have reviewed our current medium-term business plan and established a new one for the period from the fiscal year ending in March 2019 to the fiscal year ending in March 2021 (50th to 52nd terms ), with an aim to expand our business domain and change our business model into proposal-oriented services utilizing advanced technologies.
The medium-term business plan aims to change our business model, create attractive products and services, optimize the foundation of our operations and IT and spur the reform of our organizational climate, allowing us to review our management vision (To demonstrate the best presence by far in specific fields ) and ideal corporate image (IT company that is at the forefront of the times in specific fields and contributes to business growth and development of customers ) to ensure our continued growth on a medium- and long-term basis.
Our manager and all employees will remain devoted to meeting our clients’ expectations. Your continued understanding, support and cooperation are highly appreciated.
