Message from the President

“We aim to realize a smart society, devoid of waste.”

I would like to thank our shareholder and investors for your ongoing support.

“We seek out new value concepts and work sincerely to provide value to the world.”
Based on this corporate philosophy, from the perspective of providing quality assurance for software
development, we aim to make people’s everyday lives more fulfilling and smarter.

SHIFT transitioned its operations from business improvement consulting to software testing in 2008.
Since that time, we have operated as a group of professionals specializing in software
quality assurance.

The outsourcing of software testing was not commonplace in 2008, but I clearly remember
the moment when I realized the importance of this business, how much it could contribute to
society, and the major potential it offered. At the same time, proposing the outsourcing of software
testing went against ingrained industry practices, so not many companies were willing to
listen to our ideas. But we believed in ourselves and the value of what we were trying to achieve.
We have carried forward this spirit into the present.

Nowadays, the number of companies that utilize our quality assurance services is growing
every day across a range of industries. SHIFT aims to be an essential entity in the software
quality assurance business, as well as in software testing. Beyond that, we aim to facilitate
smooth and smart operations in a society awash with software products and services.

We aim to realize a smart society, devoid of waste.

Recognizing that today’s best practices are not forever, we aim to pursue corporate value
by contributing to society from a quality assurance perspective.

President and CEO
