Why Digitalization Now?
Digitalization is an extremely effective and economical means of achieving sustainable growth in a rapidly changing and highly uncertain environment.
The spread of the Internet and globalization is bringing about major changes in not only the social and business environments, but also on the way we communicate, our lifestyles, and even our values.
As a result, consumer needs are rapidly diversifying and becoming more individualized.
Companies that provide products and services face a greater need than ever for tailoring their communications and products to each individual customer with unique and appealing products and experiences.
One example of this is the rapid increase in the number of companies that offer customization or personalization services, such as manufacturing products specifically for a particular customer, or creating a special purchasing experience.
These companies must not only respond to conventional demands for quick delivery and competitive pricing, but also new challenges, such as handling a wide range of products in small lots, providing attractive experiences, and offering eye-catching designs.
Digitalization is the best way to respond to these changes in a profitable and flexible manner.
Benefits of Digitalization
We believe that digital technology has the power to release the four constraints of time, distance, space, and skill. Another key trend today is that people are becoming more creative.
Those benefits brought about by digitalization help create an environment where workers can maximize their creativity, leading to the creation of more unique and attractive products and new businesses.
Repetition of creative, high quality work also brings a sense of joy and accomplishment, and fosters a high level of motivation and a spirit of challenge to grow more and produce better work.
This is the greatest benefit of digitalization: that as each individual demonstrates their creativity and vitality, a positive spiral is activated in which the numerous advantages have a positive impact on each other, and each advantage is further accelerated.
