MESSAGE

Building a society
where everyone is creative and enjoys working.

To compete with machinery, or to master it?

Remarkable advances in AI, IoT, and robotics have brought a great wave of change that might even be called a new Industrial Revolution. Some people might fear that this change will cause them to lose their jobs, or feel a vague anxiety about ominous sci-fi concepts like the singularity.

However, we feel optimistic about change. We believe that in the future it will be important to master machinery rather than compete with it. Simple repetitive work and past analysis can be left to machines while we think about how to build tomorrow. Our unique fantasies and visions will become jobs. How exciting to think that this ideal future is around the corner.

A team where everyone is a hero

What does “work” mean to you?
We believe that to “work” is to “contribute to society”. In other words, it means always being needed by society.

From our past experience being entrusted with development, we have learned that customers do not simply want a program that is made exactly to their demands; rather, they are looking for a service that even they did not realize they wanted. This caused us to think seriously about what makes an ideal society, and we made a bold change of direction toward SaaS (Software as a Service: provision of IT services through the Internet) activities to create services needed by society.

Put simply, our ideal workstyle is to have a team where everyone acts as a hero or heroine. These kinds of teams are common in TV shows, comics, sports, and even pop groups, but as of yet cannot be found in many workplaces. That is why we developed TeamSpirit as a tool to make such a team possible.

TeamSpirit collects the activities of workers in a log to provide visibility on how they work, and to show what their important activities are and whether they are prioritizing their time toward those important activities.

Continue being a customer service company that offers new values.

However, we have just gotten started on activities to improve worker performance. Using feedback from all of our customers, we will work to improve regular functions and ask for further evaluation. This positive cycle will keep TeamSpirit a constantly high-functioning and easy to use service.

We expect that with further advancements in AI and IoT, TeamSpirit will one day become a supportive assistant the likes of R2-D2. Until that day comes, we intend to continue being a customer service company that is needed by society and offers new values.

We look forward to your continued support and guidance.
