BE GLOBAL

Since our establishment in 1997, DIVA has supported Japanese companies’ management of group companies as a provider of consolidated accounting software. Our superior expertise in this field has earned us a large share of the market.

And now, DIVA is focused on how customers should allocate their finite management resources to strengthen their core business or invest in potential growth businesses. This is a challenge facing Japanese companies and, to put it another way, an area where we should make efforts to “better the decision-making quality of group management.”

As a public entity that serves society, DIVA strives to provide solutions for this social challenge. DIVA believes that solutions in this domain will be valuable to not only Japanese companies but also companies around the world. To realize its vision, “Establish a global presence as a software provider,” which has remained unchanged since its establishment, DIVA continues contributing to the advancement of customers’ group management.
