Toppan Forms Provides Logistic Asset Management Software "LogiViewer" in a Cloud Environment to Spark Up Small Scale Users' Demand at Low Price

December 6, 2012

Information Solution Company Toppan Forms Co., Ltd. (Toppan Forms hereunder) on November 30, 2012 has started to market a low priced system using RFID to manage the status and location of logistic supplies such as folding containers and pallets. Aimed to spark up new demand, the packaged software "LogiViewer" developed by the company will be provided in a SaaS model.

In the past, small scale users could not implement logistic asset management system due to high intial investment cost and burdensome operation management. In the SaaS model customers can implement the system under one million yen annually including intial set up cost which will widen its adoption. The standard service model starts at 35,000 yen and in the case of 500 tagged assets such as folding containers and pallets, the system can be implemented starting at 950,000 yen for the first year. While the application model is different, the initial adoption cost can be under one fifth of the conventional implementation.

Since it is provided as a SaaS, the system is scalable allowing implementation to start at a minimum level to gradually be scaled as management scope expands. Number of assets and users can easily be verified and added via the web for easy management adoption.

In the logistic and distribution industry more logistic supplies are being replaced to re-usable products due to environmental reasons. It is, therefore, becoming increasingly important to reduce loss caused by misplacment or abandoment by accuratly monitoring location, stock, and usage frequency to efficiently circluate the supplies.
