Qualitative Information Regarding Consolidated Business Results
In the business environment where our Group operates, demands for outsourcing services that lead to higher productivity, stronger cost competitiveness, and higher sales remain solid. At the same time, under the COVID-19 crisis, there is a growing need for services that enable companies to promote digitalization, build up e-commerce and other contactless sales channels, apply a teleworking model, and implement BCP measures.
Against this backdrop, as the digital transformation partner of our clients, our Group continued to take an energetic approach, and delivered both Digital Marketing • E-Commerce • Contact Center (DEC) services and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) services that assist our clients in managing and transforming their businesses. At the same time, building on our Group’s immense execution capability, we have also played a role as a social infrastructure, proactively providing the national and local governments with services that assist them in carrying out various policies.
In addition, we have created and released services as well as enhanced our organizational structure in order to meet the accelerated demand for digital transformation (DX) in both the public and private sectors.
Specifically, we began full-scale operations of support desk services for home-based contact centers (CC) with the aim of further spreading the home-based CC service model. By providing solutions that address the four challenges of the home-based CC model (security, call quality, productivity and home-agents’ sense of loneliness), we powerfully encourage businesses to make it a regular business model, which shows high business continuity capabilities under the prolonged COVID-19 crisis. We also released a packaged service that combines a COVID-19 vaccine booking system for receiving a COVID-19 vaccination run by municipal governments across Japan, and “DEC Bot for Government,” our chatbot services that enable citizens to fill out pre-vaccination screening questionnaire online instead of filling the form out at the vaccination sites. All citizens need do at the group vaccination sites is print out the form using the QR code they receive when they complete their online form. With those features, the packaged service helps municipal governments avoid the 3Cs (Closed spaces, Crowded places, Close-contact settings) at their vaccination sites, and cut back on staff workload. In addition, we joined the ServiceNow Sales and Service Provider Partner Program modules. This expands our work with ServiceNow as a member of the ServiceNow Sales and Service Provider Partner Program modules in Japan. Membership in this partner program module enables us to deliver IT outsourcing services with Now Platform, which may include sales of Now Platform, resale of products or services, and operate Now Platform in a managed service capacity on behalf of our clients.
With regard to our initiatives for enhancing our organizational structure, we renamed our Nagoya office Chubu office, and opened the Kyushu office, relocating and expanding the existing Fukuoka office. By consolidating all sales-related functions into the new office, we will enhance our service delivery framework for the DX services, as well as expanding the contact centers located in Kyushu and Okinawa, thereby growing its business in the region. In addition, we setup the DX Promotion Division to strengthen the link among various DEC services in order to push its multichannel integrated services. We will enhance our services that comprehensively help our clients achieve DX.
We have also promoted our initiatives for accelerating global expansion. In Malaysia, we opened the third operations center in Kuala Lumpur to accommodate business growth. With the operational hub that enables us to offer services in as many as 25 different languages, we will further enhance and drive our multilingual services. In Indonesia, we opened a new operations center in Jakarta with a reorganized service delivery framework and reinforced IT facilities. Moreover, we beefed up our sales team targeting the ASEAN market and our Group’s global development framework in Singapore.
