Phenix network Co., Ltd.

We have a track record in communications and notification devices and automation (FA) systems.

We are a systems development company with three established business domains: communications and notification devices, automation (FA) systems, and maintenance management. We manufacture and sell our own communications and notification products including on-site PHS notification devices, safety confirmation systems, PHS equipment, and modem communications software. We provide contract development of FA systems such as sequencer programs for controlling and monitoring factory plant and equipment. Local governments, hospitals, and private enterprises have adopted our communications and notification devices and FA systems. Our name recognition has been growing quickly since the second half of 2014, when we started actively exhibiting at trade shows and other venues.


Other presentation

[Company strength]
(1) We apply the synergy benefits between our FA systems business and communications and notification business to manufacture FA notification devices that link to factory equipment. FA control equipment manufacturers are generally poor at communications devices, and communications device manufacturers are often poor at FA systems. This is why we have very few rivals in FA notification devices specialized for factory applications.
(2) We can supply special-order notification devices custom-made for individual client specifications.
(3) Nearly all communications device manufacturers have exited the PHS market. We are a rare company that can make on-site PHS notification devices.

[Business description]
We are a systems development company that turns improved applications into products. We strive to differentiate ourselves in our three primary business domains and expand our communications and notification business with automatic notification devices.
(1) Communications and notification business: We manufacture and sell products under our own name including on-site PHS notification devices, safety confirmation systems, PHS equipment, and modem communications software.
(2) FA systems business: We provide contract development of sequencer programs for controlling and monitoring factory plant and equipment.
(3) Maintenance management business: We maintain condominium notification devices and real estate company servers.

Software development; notification device development

[Strength of products/technologies]
We have applied our expertise gained through contracted development of notification devices to modularize our communications technologies and create a notification device platform. We can build even one-off devices with custom specifications. We can provide order-made products that support specific factory sizes or notification methods in addition to our standard models. We have almost no rivals in on-site PHS notification devices. Our new product is a safety confirmation device using on-site PHS networks. This product has four advantages. (1) It is an unrivalled product (as of April 2015) that confirms employee safety using extension phone networks. (2) Extension phone lines can be used to confirm safety during a disaster, when mobile phones will not connect, if the on-site PHS network and backup power generation systems are working. (3) On-site PHS using extension phone line calls can be effectively used to confirm employee safety. (4) The product can be used in normal times to report factory equipment breakdowns in addition to safety confirmation usage. 

[Representative's message]
We exhibited at four large trade shows starting in November last year. Our goal was to boost name recognition and expand sales of our safety confirmation notification devices. We revamped our website in December of last year and took steps for better SEO. We had an article published in a trading company magazine in January, created a safety confirmation system pamphlet in November, and produced a catalog of our notification devices in March. We ran a concentrated sales promotion for a short period, including one-point ads in industry journals (December and January), which has steadily increased recognition of our company. We are now following up with more trade show exhibitions. Our aim is to continue to provide clients with beneficial products and technologies.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our business strategy has been to differentiate ourselves through our products, develop niche markets, and create new applications for commercially available products. We have applied this strategy to delve deeply into the communications and notification device business and to develop new maintenance contracts for our maintenance management business. We lack sufficient personnel at the present time, so we are expanding sales in partnership with trading companies until we increase the size of our workforce. On-site PHS systems are a Japan-specific communications standard, so we have no current plans to market our products overseas.

[Market share/Ranking]
Our detailed market share is unknown, but our on-site PHS notification devices have almost no competitors.

[Main Clients / Business History (domestic)]
Our on-site PHS notification devices have a long track record of application. We supplied our public PHS notification equipment to the Urban Renaissance Agency (570 public PHS notification panels for building monitoring, 2002) and Toneyama National Hospital (SPO2 emergency call notification equipment). We also provide unattended chain-hoist inspection notification panels for conveyors in factories. We have created a dedicated modem communications system between water purification plants and pump houses for a local government. Our FA system products include a power monitoring system at a large construction materials factory. We have also provided controls for an environmental wastewater treatment plant, a solvent supply plant (explosion-proof) for a film factory, and low-resistance measuring equipment for power utilities.
