After analyzing the actual conditions and issues of the assumed users' on-site operations and the factors that prevent existing products from addressing the issues, we propose how advanced technology can be used to solve the issues.
If it is difficult to define the requirements because there are unclear parts in the concept of the new product or the requirements are enormous, etc., we will conduct market research and benchmark reference cases as appropriate, and propose the optimal requirements for business development. We can also support discussions on setting priorities for implementation according to the time axis.

customer's voice

Major auto parts supplier

Reliable traction as an escort runner

In a sense, it was very helpful to have the ability to forcefully push forward in a situation where it was difficult to establish an appropriate team structure, such as members who had no experience in business development, members who did not work beyond the scope of their roles, etc.
At the beginning, I had a lot of anxiety, and there were many conflicts with the field and management, but after about a year, I felt like I could work as a team member, and I managed to start the business. I don't think we could have been able to bring it to launch without their contributions.

Major construction company

Surprised by the originality of idea generation

I was surprised that they presented more than 300 relatively sound business ideas by making full use of the idea creation method called the cube method.
Of course, there was also an explanation of the process of creation, but there were many ideas that we would not have thought of normally, and I felt the wonder of a professional.
Many of the ideas that were ultimately selected were reasonable, but there were also models that could be established by combining them with eccentric ideas.
