About the company
The company has a vision of “Renew the world by Intelligent software (AI)”: They develop and systemize Business Intelligence by AI.

This company provides a system solution that will enable computers to handle complicated processing, so that people can focus on more creative business. It engages in all processes from collecting data to applying into client’s business.

It is still very rare for industrialists to make a team with machine learning engineers. This company can infiltrate AI into many situations by pursuing collaborative projects with leading companies of different industries.
Many hardware such as IoT and smart robots load software, but the number of companies which make its “brain (AI)” is still very few.

There are variety of places where their technologies are used. For example, CRM solution by applying AI: It is a digital marketing tool to help company with making loyal customers. This tool provides various marketing solutions such as how to use e-mail magazine or mobile application efficiently and how to offer discount coupons differently based on purchasing behavior and gender.
