Introduction of cloud system for global information services
We connect suppliers and our customers in our customers’ global supply chain through the steady provision of and proposals for commercial distribution and local information.
In Japan, with the increase in offshore production by our customers and as their suppliers also move overseas, there has been a sharp rise in the number of commercial transactions between overseas countries that bypass Japan. In this new business environment, there is a stronger demand for global standardization and greater speed in parts operation services.
Amid this growth in overseas business transactions and logistics, our challenge is to find ways to provide our customers with information about orders and shipment progress in a timely manner.
We have met this challenge by standardizing the key points and rules of our services and operational management, which had previously been optimized to the local region of the Group’s overseas bases, to create the ideal conditions for global operations. We also introduced a globally shared cloud system for the management of these standardized operations. This has allowed us to achieve information services and speed improvements for our customers.
The introduction of this system has enabled us to procure the parts required for our customers’ production activities and to provide information about shipment status in a timely manner. With this, we are able to provide safer, more secure support for our customers’ global production activities.
