In addition, we have established an information asset management system that complies with GDPR, PDPA, and other laws and regulations in the global era, and contributed to the establishment of an information security management system that is comparable to that of IT companies.
GDPR Compliance Support (Global)
The GDPR (EU General Data Protection Regulation), the law on the processing and transfer of personal data, came into force on May 25, 2018, requiring appropriate measures due to the huge amount of penalties in the event of a breach (up to 4% of global turnover). Organized the whereabouts and flow of personal data in European operations, visualized GDPR non-compliances and situations, analyzed risks and developed countermeasures in those non-compliances, developed a medium-term response plan, and prepared documentation to ensure accountability to the European Supervisory Body. In order to provide global support, we used English at all times and facilitated communication with our European subsidiaries, contributing to the success of the project.
Workplace reform using RPA
In order to reduce the amount of workload, we conducted interviews regarding existing operational flows, organized RPA targets, selected RPA targets based on the amount of workload and difficulty level of RPA implementation, created operational flows before and after RPA implementation, and implemented RPA from construction to implementation. In addition to RPA, we also used BPR and other IT technologies to broaden the scope of the work style reform that was identified at the time of the hearing. It has contributed to a significant reduction in overall workload.
IT Platform Sales Strategy
In order to build trust with our clients, we surveyed the current status of the IT platform's business policies, objectives, and organizational structure, created points for applying the concept of UX and design thinking to IT platform services, created strengths through the extraction of As-Is, and formulated specific activity plans and schedules. The expansion of specialties and quality improvement from the accumulation of results contributed to overall sales growth.
Systematization of activity/travel expense management and project management support
Although there was a code for managing travel expenses for activities, the level of compliance with the code was low in each prefecture, with the aim of strengthening governance, we conducted a comprehensive survey of the actual situation and identified problems, considered systematic solutions, supported systematization, and implemented nationwide. In line with the systemization, a large amount of paper operation was abolished and paperless was realized, and the systemization contributed to a reduction of about 200 hours of work time per month.
