Creating new businesses harnessing technology
Leveraging factual data confirming the identity of individuals, which only credit card companies have the means of doing, we deliver the best information in a timely manner and generate unique content to meet the needs of every customer. We also advance open innovation by cooperating with venture firms that possess new technologies, and through R&D in leading-edge technologies.
In April 2017 we acquired 100% of the shares of Omnibus K.K., a digital marketing company, in order to support our marketing activities by harnessing the latest ad technology. By tapping the company’s ample knowledge and ad technology tools in the areas of video advertising and managed online advertising, we are delivering optimum content to each customer and expanding our advertising business.
