Our Staff

Here you can find the team that is developing CANALS.

Osaka Office

We are a system and design company based in Osaka and Tokyo.
In addition to our track record in implementation of cloud computing services (CANALS) and designing websites,
we also work in the planning and production of various advertisements and graphic designs.
There are many youngsters working in our office and they are filled with motivation and bright atmosphere.

Tokyo Office

We have young employees working diligently every day in our Tokyo office too.
The major challenge as an engineer is to get the requirements and evaluations directly from the customers
in the same way as in our Osaka office.


There is no expense until the system begins to operate.
We shall adjust the specifications of the system using “Fit & gap analysis” any number of times until the system meets your company’s requirement.
Once you raise a complaint, the operator provides system support. Invariably, the operator will ask many details. CANALS has dedicated full time personnel who will provide reliable support during and after installation.
We will always have detailed discussions on the business flow before configuring the system.
This is because we will not be able to come up with a good system if we do not understand the purpose of the system.
