It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Allied Architects website. We are a Japan-based social marketing company specializing in supporting companies with marketing using social media and are proud to have the highest share of use among similar services within Japan.
Approximately 40 percent of our employees are system engineers and creators, and all of our services and solutions are developed in-house. In particular, the marketing platform named "Monipla", which comprehensively supports companies' campaigns on social media, is highly evaluated and installed by many companies in terms of system quality, user network of over 1.5 million registered users, and design, operational excellence. Most notably, marketing support using Facebook has proven results and more than half the companies ranked in "Japan's 100 most popular companies on Facebook" have installed Monipla. Most of them aremajor companies which distribute, advertise, and promote their products globally.
We have been providing Monipla in Taiwan from 2012, and in Vietnam from early 2014. We are expecting to increase our customer base mainly in other Asian countries. Monipla has been widely used by local companies and Japanese companies operated in those countries. We are also proud to announce that we have set up a subsidiary in Singapore called Allied Asia Pacific. We are committed to expanding our operations around our marketing services in Asia.
