WHO WE ARE
The world is becoming more and more convenient every day,
but communication will never disappear from society.
AI CROSS will continue to create new technologies
and flexible ideas to make communication even more flexible and active,
and to enhance the amount and quality of those communications.
We help improve the productivity of businesses and employees.
Smart Work, Smart Life.
Making your business style smarter
AI CROSS provides efficiency-improving services
so that businesses can maximize their output.
We help your employees realize Smart Life with our services.
Thank you for visiting the AI CROSS website.
Our company was established in 2015 as a company that
revolutionizes business communication platforms.
Communication tools have changed significantly as the times have changed.
The telephone, which was invented in the 1870s, and the commercialization of
the internet in the 1990s, dramatically evolved our communication style.
Now a new revolution is happening in communication with AI.
It is not difficult to imagine that the 5G networks
that are yet to come will further change our communication style.
I, as a woman and a mother, have always contemplated what
needs to be done in order to achieve a healthy balance between
work and child raising while traveling for business domestically and overseas.
With our realization that communication is the key to corporate activities and
that more active communication may help our clients improve their productivity,
we operate AI CROSS.
In Japan, to promote work style reform,
a further improvement in productivity is expected.
The decline of the working population is
becoming an issue not only in Japan, but across the world.
We believe it is our mission to constantly seek new communication styles
and solve issues to contribute to
our clients’ business development.
We will continue to work for further revolutions by
flexibly adapting to changing times and utilizing AI technology as
a new communication platform.
