A unique organization centered on native writers with sufficient experience. Equipments and environments for efficient writing, production, and editing. Equipments and systems for video manuals and electronic manuals, installer program production, foreign language expansion. We can answer all needs from the customer, on manual production.
Furthermore, we put much effort in the research and development of expressions in manuals and technical writing education. We are recently striving to become an international manual production group receiving orders for packaged production of all manuals that come with a product, and foreign language expansion.
We are also getting ready to expand our business by developing video equipment and welfare devices.
