NTT DOCOMO Ventures, Inc.
NTT DOCOMO Ventures, Inc. (headquartered in Minato-ku, Tokyo, Japan; President and CEO Yuko Sasahara; hereinafter “NDV”), has invested, through its fund, in jinjer Co., Ltd. (headquartered in Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Japan; CEO Ken Kato ; hereinafter “jinjer”), which offers a back-office cloud service, “jinjer.”
Recently, there has been an increasing demand from companies and organizations for revising and improving business processes mainly in back-office operations, reflecting such factors as the introduction of remote work in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the promotion of paperless work in connection with work-style reforms. This increase in demand is expected to accelerate further, in part because of various law revisions such as the revision of the Act concerning Preservation of Electronic Books and the introduction of the invoice system.
The jinjer’s cloud services, “jinjer,” provides a wide range of support for improving the efficiency of overall back-office operations, including personnel and labor management, attendance management, salary calculation, workflow management, expense reimbursement, handling of electronic contracts, and web conferencing. By integrating data relating to back-office operations under the “jinjer” services, companies can manage, in a single database system, all operations that occur from when an employee is hired until he/she retires (registration of employee information, registration of divisions/departments, attendance management, salary calculation, year-end adjustment, personnel information update, etc.). Furthermore, even when an update occurs due to a personnel change, etc., there is no need to update each service; with one change in the personnel information database, the update is reflected in all services. Therefore, companies can drastically reduce the burden of updates and changes.
The term “digital transformation” is now used commonly, but there is still sufficient room for improving the efficiency of and advancing Japanese companies’ business processes. The jinjer has a corporate culture to provide, on a customer-first basis, deep and close support in finding solutions to these challenges faced by companies, and also has strong development capabilities that enable to respond to changes swiftly; therefore, NDV has determined that jinjer is highly valuable. In addition, NDV feels strong empathy for jinjer’s business concept and its philosophy concerning computer systems, which both center on people—the strongest element for corporate growth. For these reasons, NDV has decided to invest in Jinjer.
By supporting cooperation between the NTT Group and jinjer, NDV will advance its effort to create new values.
