■ TradeWaltz solves the challenges of trade transactions
Even with a large covid-19 impact, trade procedures still rely on paper documents, and trade practitioners are forced to travel to work since remote work is not possible for them. Furthermore, the number of trade practitioners is expected to decrease in the future due to a declining birth rate, and the need to improve and streamline analog trade transactions has become critical.
TradeWaltz is a cross-industry trade information linkage platform. With blockchain technology, trade transactions can be fully digitized under a high level of security. Demonstration results in the past have indicated an improvement of 44-60% in business efficiency. Furthermore, liminating paper documents will lower costs and make it possible for practitioners to work remotely.
In 2021, we have successfully demonstrated export operations from Japan to Taiwan in collaboration with small and medium-sized enterprises (*1). Also, we are also working with the TOSS series, which has the largest share of the international logistics system in the market (*2), and have been selected for the Accelerator Program operated by SAP Japan (*3). (Singapore, Thailand, New Zealand, and Australia) in FY 2022 (*4), and we are also considering collaboration between platforms in Japan and overseas.
