Our Services

Overview PDF

A members only information service that saves companies in the automotive industry time and money by providing essential information about suppliers around the world (including who supplies whom, plant data, and market trends), sales and production statistics, reports on technology and market trends, model plan data including forecasts, and more. All information is available in Japanese, Chinese, and English.
All of this information is gathered independently through means like press releases, interviews, purchases from independent agencies, and cooperation with other companies. The data is then integrated and analyzed, converted into a database for industry professionals, and made available to members.

What is a platform?

In the automotive industry, a platform is a series of components used in common for a number of different models to reduce development time and costs, as well as to raise quality. This is an increasingly mainstream development concept for automakers, who face stiff price competition.
Auto industry companies that access our "information platform" gain a similar effect to that described above. In short, it is a tool for optimizing information strategies.
