Kantou Information Micro Co., Ltd.

We installed a proprietary document management system at the Tatebayashi City Office that has been operating stably for five years.

Our business has been centered on providing microfilm and related services as a means of managing important documents for our major company and government agency clients. We take on contract work for organizing archives and establishing document management plans and document management consulting work and we also market the Filing Manager, our document management system developed in-house. Through these various business arms, we strive to assist our clients with information security and business continuity strategies. We developed a new IC tag support package that can be added to the Filing Manager. We received the Chairman’s Award from the Tochigi Branch of the Japan Institute of Invention and Innovation.

[Company strength]
As a full-service document management company, the core of our business is (1) backup documentation services (microfilm, digital conversion, etc.), (2) contract and consulting work, and (3) information systems (primarily document management systems). Our ability to provide integrated document management services is our greatest strength. Furthermore, all core employees are qualified as Document Information Management Specialists or Information Security Management Specialists, which enables them to provide the best solutions matching client circumstances from an expert point of view.



[Business description]
Since our establishment in 1971, our business has been centered on providing microfilm and related services as a means of managing important documents for our major company and government agency clients. Over time, we have gradually been entrusted with related services, such as contract work for organizing archives and establishing document management plans and document management consulting work. In addition, we market the Filing Manager, our document management system developed in-house. Through these various business arms, we strive to assist clients with information security and business continuity strategies.

[Industry]
Information services 

[Strength of products/technologies]
The primary requirement of a document management system, which constitutes the information infrastructure of a company, is stable operation. Our Filing Manager document management system, which we installed at the Tatebayashi City Office in Gunma Prefecture, is used daily on 700 client computers, and yet has operated stably for five straight years since it began operation in 2011. We are also dedicated to providing meticulous support, such as post-installation user support and minor upgrades.



[Representative's message]
We focus on finding new business partners, as well as developing new end users for direct sales, primarily through exhibiting at trade shows and participating in business matching events. In the past, we have generally provided indirect business-process rationalization measures through improved document management. But we are now providing well-matched proposals for security measures for business documents that directly interface with BCP (such as backup arrangements and establishment of security platforms), and we are working to open up markets in fields where BCP interest is high due to losses from natural disasters or information security breaches.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
New client business representatives in the sales division handle inquiries and prepare proposals for companies and government agencies. System engineer representatives in the technology division reply to technical inquiries and make proposals through on-premise visits. We have weekly meetings between the sales division and the technology division to share information and unify the overall company direction. We are not considering overseas expansion at the present time.

[Market share/Ranking]
We have sold our system to 12 clients in the three North Kanto prefectures (Tochigi, Gunma, and Ibaraki). (Objective data is not available, so our share is unknown.)
