Our mission

Using IT to provide an environment where workers can focus on creative work

Before our founding, the Japanese 2D CAD market was different from the global standard. Domestic vendors dominated the market, and each vendor had a different CAD format. This led to data conversion work that didn’t add value between companies that adopted different CADs. It was a so-called “Galapagosized” situation in which Japanese companies were falling behind in productivity, not only behind Europe and America, where the DWG format was virtually unified, but also in emerging countries.
Providing an environment where people can focus on creative work:
We set this as our mission because we wanted to contribute to engineers, even at a small level, who are losing time and effort to unnecessary work.

Our vision

Aim to become a global niche leader

As globalization progresses, we believe that if we are unable to provide products and services in overseas markets, we will eventually be unable to survive in Japan.
“Growing into a global niche top manufacturer” is the inevitable path for our company to survive.
Development of world-class CAD products.
We want to make it happen no matter what. The attempt is now underway. We are, and will continue to challenge ourselves and thrive.

Our value

Decisions based on “long-term period,” “taking on challenges,” and “win-win”

・Long-term period
We do product development with the whole business in mind, rather than just targeting the traditional engineering market. We prioritise initiatives with a longer-term perspective.

・Taking on challenge
We can’t create the future just by solving the current problems. By keeping a close eye on the IT trends, we predict the problems that may arise in the future and continue to challenge ourselves to overcome them.

We are mindful of win-wins in all three directions, including customer relationships, partner relationships, and in-house. Without this, we believe the only long-term outcome is Lose-Lose.

Workplace Environment

Our team/corporate culture

■CAD Division 3 (9 males, 1 female)
The department in charge of the implementation process of product development within the company as its main business. Surrounded by veteran developers, they take on more challenging developments. After the elementary skill learning period, there is more time to work on your own. When things seem difficult, they voluntarily consult with engineers around them. The current manager is primarily concerned with checking the big policy and not the implementation details. Therefore, it can be said that this is an environment that demands independence among members.

■CAD Division 4 (1 male, 3 females)
The department responsible for customizing the functional aspects of its products. It is also responsible for quality control of customization functions and support work, such as contacting developers who use customization functions. The current manager is also in charge of technical guidance and clearly lays out the policy to carry out the work.

The whole company is concentrating on each individual’s work and proceeding silently, in a quiet atmosphere.
