CyberAgent was founded in 1998, and has been deployed business with Internet, providing 'Ameba', community service and game for smart phone. With their vision 'Build a company to represent 21st century', they have Ameba business, Internet advertising, and Game business are main, in addition, entertainment and community business are some of others. In order to process these businesses, group companies' support is essential and kintone and OPROARTS support their invoice management process for their advanced expenses.

We have interviewed Mr. Yuichiro Kido, Solution Sales Department of Cybozu Inc. on synergetic effectiveness of kintone and OPROARTS for the problems CyberAgent had.


A wall to investment effectiveness

The project CyberAgent had was invoice management process for advanced expenses for group companies. They had following process. Output CSV from ERP’s account data, and retrieve advanced expense data of each group company. Process those and convert to invoice data. This process was done manually with Excel. They had reviewed various methods to overcome their problem by systemizing, however, there were other problem such as obtaining employee, security environment, and further, outcome verses investment was not that anticipated one. During that time, as the last hope, they contacted us for our business application platform 'kintone'.

Not to disturb customer's manufacturing line


OPROARTS that increases kintone' functionality

With kintone's CSV retrieve function, narrowing function and access control function, most of CyberAgent's requirement was met. However, with only kintone, it was not possible to output specified format output.
OPROARTS supports this. With this, we could reduce individual integration and customize, and deployed system in short period with minimum cost. Also, since the process they were doing with Excel manually could be achieved by kintone, therefore report process load reduced dramatically. Furthermore, created invoice data can be stored as database automatically, it was easy to find data later. The cost effectiveness which could not achieve by customizing ERP for invoice management process is easily achieved by combination of kintone and OPROARTS.
