About the company
The first company in Japan to specialize in D2C (Direct to Consumer) support.

In the SaaS business, as of June 2021, they are currently operating an EC platform that is used by over 400 manufacturers.

The average annual sale of the stores using their service is about 200 million yen - the highest level in the industry. Their strength lies in the fact they receive feedback directly from the D2C consulting team which they then utilize in developing products with the manufacturers on the functions which are necessary to sell the products. On top of this, they have a cycle in place which allows them to quickly implement the functions at their domestic and overseas bases.

D2C, the core of the other business to the company, is a sales model in which they plan and manufacture their own products and sell and manage them on their e-commerce site. It has grown because of its ability to reach individual consumers directly through SNS and web media advertising. This makes it even possible to deliver niche products to those that desire them.

In addition to handling the launch and growth of their own brands, the company also provides product development consulting services to manufacturers. They have achieved a high level of success by providing integrated services from market research to product planning, sales, and management. In addition to full support, they also provide partial support on-demand, providing only the necessary business representation and know-how. They can provide support according to the business phase of the manufacturer, from the study phase of starting a business to the study phase of business scale measures.
