Works Applications Co., Ltd. specializes in the development, sales, and support of proprietary ERP package software HUE and HUE Classic for large-scale corporations, with three main goals in mind:
・ Increase corporate productivity and contribute to the expansion of corporate value
・ Change the concept of working and transform work into more creative activities
・ Provide a place for critical workers to play an active role
In the 1990s, until the debut of COMPANY (the predecessor to HUE), it was said that it was impossible to create an ERP package that corresponds to the detailed and complicated business customs of major Japanese companies. Major Japanese companies have no choice but to make enormous investments into custom systems or to customize overseas ERP packages. It’s estimated that this has resulted in the efficiency of Japan’s information systems being 10 years slower than that of the United States. If nothing is done, Japanese companies will grow weaker, and their international competitiveness will continue to decline. In order to dramatically reduce the actual investment cost into IT, it is essential to commercialize an ERP package that can be used by major Japanese companies without compromise. It is the mission of Works Applications to take on this challenge.
