Efforts to computerize education

It is essential for the next generation of children to be able to use ICT (information and communication technology) in general learning opportunities, as freely as if it were simple stationery. ICT will be the most basic tool needed to be an active member of future society. From an early stage, DAIWABO INFORMATION SYSTEM CO., LTD. (DIS) has been supporting the introduction of ICT in educational fields. In addition to selling equipment, it offers comprehensive solutions to schools and teachers, including installation support.


R&D to tackle social challenges

Daiwabo has developed “Mercury®C”, a reinforcing fiber that allows concrete to self-repair cracks. Cracks occur in concrete due to volumetric changes caused by temperature changes, drying, and other factors. This not only damages the external appearance of concrete, but also causes problems such as water leakage, reduction of area due to corrosion of internal reinforcement, and reduced durability of structures. In addition to reducing repair work through self-repair of cracks, this fiber is also expected to help prevent explosions in high-strength concrete caused by steam generated during fires.


Joint development through industry-academia collaboration

OMK Ltd. has collaborated with Shimane University to develop a technology that can accurately estimate the chemical composition of molten metal resulting from a given amount of cast iron raw materials and additives, a previously difficult task made possible using artificial intelligence (deep learning). This technology is expected to significantly improve productivity by enabling the production of cast iron with the desired specifications in a single process, rather than requiring multiple processes of chemical component inspection, addition of additives, and melting.


Sales of disaster prevention/mitigation products

KANBO PRAS CORPORATION is actively engaged in the sale of disaster prevention and mitigation products. The image on the left shows a panel-type waterstop sheet used to protect important buildings and sites from torrential rain as a flood control measure.

Utilization of IT to reduce work man-hours (RPA, etc.)

Against the backdrop of manpower shortages and an aging population, improving productivity is a major issue in many developed countries. In Japan in particular, there has been a growing demand for reform of working styles in order to realize more efficient and diverse ways of working. Robotics process automation (RPA) is gaining attention as a tool to achieve this goal by automating some work processes using robot systems. DIS was among the first to introduce RPA, and uses it to improve the efficiency of its operations.

  • Daiwabo Information System (DIS) has implemented a donation system in which a considerable amount of money spent on gifts such as congratulatory flowers and New Year’s cards is made part of a donation to contribute to society. In FY2021, the monetary amount of conventional gifts such as congratulatory flowers was 3,325,000 yen. A total of 6,650,000 yen (the above amount plus the same amount from our company) was donated to the Japan Committee for UNICEF.
  • Daiwabo Holdings and the Daiwabo Group support the purpose of the "Yumeiku Work Support Business" and have concluded agreements on the use of illustration data created by persons with disabilities. "Yumeiku Work Support Business" is a program run by Shimane Prefecture/social welfare corporation Shimane Prefecture Social Welfare Council/San-in Godo Bank, Ltd., which promotes employment support for the disabled. These fees are used to promote employment support for persons with disabilities in Shimane Prefecture as part of subsidies for initiatives such as raising labor costs and improving the working environment for users of facilities that support the employment of persons with disabilities.
