transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda; TSE First Section: 9715; hereafter, transcosmos) has started sales of “Works Mobile,” a next-generation groupware offered by Works Mobile Japan Co., Ltd.

While the demand for speedy business communications increases, more corporations are now using messenger tools using Smartphone for internal communications. Works Mobile Japan, which developed “Works Mobile” transcosmos is working with, has NAVER, which operates one of South Korea’s largest Internet search portal website, as a parent company. NAVER is the parent company of LINE Corporation, owner and operator of the free call and messaging app LINE, which is the messenger application used the most in Japan.

“Works Mobile” is used much like the messenger apps like LINE, so no training is necessary in order to implement it. Also, there are increasing cases where stickers are used to express emotions in the business world a well, and with “Works Mobile,” since the same character stickers familiar through LINE can be used, expedient confirmation of each other’s intentions among the users can be made.

transcosmos has since the early stage been supporting cooperation between the corporate system utilizing LINE Business Connect and communication service in the area of marketing and customer support for its corporate clients. Making full use of the abundant experience and know how accumulated through the above-mentioned projects, transcosmos will promote implementation of Works Mobile for many corporate clients. In addition, in the future transcosmos also plans on coordination with SFA tools such as Oracle Sales Cloud which it currently handles to make it possible to report the schedule and daily reports from the messengers’ Interfaces to these SFA products.
