​Product data / order management

/ quality control

  • Difficult to grasp product data, standard cost, lot cost.

  • The core system, excel sheets differ depending on the branch office/factory.

Difficulties on overseas expansion

  • ERP systems (domestic manufacturers) that you are currently using cannot be used overseas.
