|(1) Sales Innovation business||We are developing this business to spread “sales process management” throughout the world via this company as well as two subsidiaries: SOFTBRAIN SERVICE Co., Ltd. and SOFTBRAIN INTEGRATION Co., Ltd.
“e-Sales Manager”, created in August 1999, has managed to develop to match customer needs, and we plan to make further improvements to it such as further expansion of product scopes, strengthened IoT capability, and technology links with partners inside and outside of Japan. We are also actively investing in AI technology, and are considering enabling the development of applications in this “new dimension”. At SOFTBRAIN SERVICE Co., Ltd., we are doing collaborative research with Tokyo University to scientifically reveal the “characteristics of winning sales organizations”. Through these initiatives, we aim to evolve in both the software and service sides.
|(2) Field Marketing business||The Field Marketing business developed by SOFTBRAIN FIELD Co., Ltd.—a subsidiary of this company—conducts support for sales activities and sales promotion activities utilizing roughly 74,000 registered members from all over Japan. Although it has the advantage of being able to develop total solutions—including surveys of purchase motivations, creation of sales environments that match these motivations, and formulation of new marketing strategies based on surveys of purchase reasons—we have seen decreasing profit margins due to changes in business structures, and we believe we must enact active and forward-thinking reforms. SOFTBRAIN FIELD Co., Ltd. has made preparations toward getting listed since two years ago; as we continue to aim for this independent listing, we also plan to continue searching for optimal methods—including capital and business alliances with other companies etc.—from the perspective of increasing corporate value for both this company and SOFTBRAIN FIELD Co., Ltd.|
