Information and Communication Technology
Contributing to the development of society through information and communications technology
We provide support for businesses in today’s highly networked information society and deliver peace of mind and comfort in daily life through businesses in three areas. The activities of information services businesses include developing systems related to social infrastructure and building and maintaining e-commerce websites. In addition, broadcasting and communications businesses focus on offering regionally based television, internet, and telephone services. Meanwhile, our safety and education businesses provide security services, programming education, and other services.
In addition to such internet businesses as e-commerce and website production, this company uses capabilities fostered over many years to conduct a wide range of systems development related to social infrastructure, including railways and buildings. Further, the company provides solutions related to clinical tests, diagnosis, digital catheters, and other areas of the medical field and offers contract services in such areas as the development of high-quality software. By delivering assurance and comfort in daily life and strengthening its solutions even further, the company aims to roll out services nationwide.
Broadcasting and Communications
Primarily in line-side areas, these subsidiaries provide information infrastructure offering convenient access to television, internet, and telephone services. Recently, we have begun to offer higher-specification optical internet services and wireless high-speed internet services with a transmission speed equivalent to mobile phones. We have also been focusing our efforts on the production of original community channel programs rooted in local areas.
In the Mimamorume system, children carry wireless IC tags. When a child passes through the school gates, their guardian is notified by email. Using this system in combination with monitoring cameras installed by local governing bodies, the Machinaka Mimamorume service provides notifications of the locations of people who require monitoring, such as children or senior citizens. In this way, we are helping to create towns where people can live with safety and confidence.
We conduct ProgLab robot-programming classes for children. Looking to the future, we are developing children’s abilities to realize their ambitions by cultivating their reasoning, problem-solving and creative skills. Reflecting the level of interest in programming education, the number of students is approximately 4,000. We also offer classes and extracurricular classes at schools.
