Message from the President
We had just renewed the design of our website a year and a half ago, but we renewed it again because, we are a web production company, after all. What’s wrong with renewing the look every year?
The theme of this renewal was flexibility so that we can highlight important topics on the homepage as they arise. You see, when I come up with what I think is a good idea, I want to execute it right away. So, I suddenly requested the addition of some new site content. I seem to be the most selfish client for our company. I am happy to report that we are being picked up more by the news media now, and the frequency with which we update our information has also increased.
We came to the conclusion that we should change the design of our website into one that is similar to an e-commerce site. In other words, the look and menu are designed to make it possible to flexibly change the order of priority of the various topics contained within.
Up to now, we have handled the adoption and operation of dozens of content management system (CMS) software. For our own website, we decided to adopt Six Apart’s Movable Type and Alfasado’s Power CMS. We made it possible to make frequent updates by handing the initiative for the updates from the Web team to the Marketing team.
We want to keep the Japanese-language version of our website evolving, so I look forward to hearing your comments. With that said, however, I want to start renewing our English- and Chinese-language sites as well, so it looks like this project to upgrade our websites will be continuing for some time.
I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
