About the company
The company develops and deploys enterprise digital platforms that create "connections" between people. The two co-founders both come from major IT companies and one of them has worked for several major IT companies in Japan and overseas, and has also been an executive officer at Google Japan. In various environments, he continued to think about "what is necessary for individuals to achieve personal realization in the society and in companies," and developed this company as one of his answers.

That aim at first was to visualize human resources and create a platform for people to connect and collaborate with each other across organizations and companies. Specifically, the company's product is a platform that utilizes the profile data of each employee, and as of January 2022, it offers two functions. One is a function that allows users to visualize and search for background, skills, experience, current job description, hobbies, and specialties. The key point is that in addition to text-based profile information, the platform includes an engine that automatically extracts tags from the data that represent the characteristics of each employee. Skills and characteristics such as "natural language processing" and "JavaScript," "business development" and "PM" experience, and even hobbies such as "running" and "eating out," for example, are automatically inferred and extracted from personnel management information and daily communication data to create tags. This mechanism allows users to get a sense of a person's personality before reading the text data in details.

In companies with thousands or tens of thousands of employees, it is difficult to know what kind of talents and experiences are available in the company. For example, when launching a new project team, how do you find the right people for the project and who are knowledgeable in the area? Their product makes it possible to find out about all employees and learn more about who they are, in order to find the right person for the job.

Another feature is the matching function. By entering a question with a keyword on the platform, the function automatically searches for employees who might be able to answer the question and encourages the other party to answer or collaborate with them. In the past, the only solution would have been to send a simultaneous e-mail to an unspecified number of people. It could be a business matters or even a slightly more casual topic. The important part is that the matching function allows members to reach the answer efficiently, which creates opportunities for co-creation and collaboration. This is how new connections are created.
