ERP for integrated management of various resources such as people, things and capital, was born in Germany in the 1990's, and thereafter came to be used by companies all over the world as a typical enterprise system for achieving overall optimization of a business.
Consider this, however: have enterprise systems such as those for ERP increased the overall happiness of the people who use them in the office?
Until the 1990's, enterprise systems (enterprise applications) starting with ERP systems held a clear lead in technology, and consumer applications were simply a rehash of them. However, as we entered the 2000's, consumer applications evolved remarkably.
Currently, services targeted at individuals, offered by enterprises such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, have become essential in people's daily lives. There is no need to describe the amazement and excitement that people feel, because of their speed and ease of use.
On the other hand, what has happened with systems used at enterprises?
Operations such as inputting and searching through massive amounts of data, creating printed materials, among others, have hardly changed at all between the past and now.
Enterprise applications have no convenience like consumer applications, speed is exceedingly slow, they are difficult to use, and people continue to be overwhelmed by routine work.
In other words, people are unable to exhibit their abilities to the fullest due to the massive amounts of routine work done on difficult-to-use systems.
And then we realized:
Until now, ERP systems have helped in the integration of information, but have fallen short of increasing the overall happiness at the workplace. From the aspect of individual performance, return on information investment has hardly improved at all.
We are determined to destroy the established concepts of ERP and create entirely new enterprise applications.
We aim to free all workers from routine work and create time for them to focus on more creative work, which is the kind of work that we thrive on.
Taking Information Investment Efficiency to a Whole New Level
Believing in the Power of Innovation at All Enterprises
Our challenge continues.
