PLANET as information infrastructure
PLANET’s business philosophy is based on two concepts; first, “the value of a company is equal to the value of the services it provides to society,” and “standardization leads to the streamlining of work.” PLANET’s users include raw materials suppliers, CPG/OTC manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers. We are constantly aware that our value as a company lies in our provision of valuable services to all of our clients.
PLANET provides electronic data interchange (EDI) services for companies. While data transmission has become commonplace since the advent of the Internet, what we provide is a reliable means for companies to exchange electronic data.
PLANET was established based upon an agreement forged among eight major manufacturers in the business of providing daily necessities and cosmetics. In the more than 25 years since then, companies representing a broad range of enterprises, including but not limited to those in the daily necessity/cosmetics business, have been eager to take advantage of PLANET’s data interchange services. We now support the vibrant business transactions of the entire CPG/OTC distribution and marketing sector, and conduct our business in the awareness of our responsibility to provide a platform for product distribution and marketing throughout Japan.
We at PLANET see our role as supporting the streamlining of the consumer goods distribution and marketing sector as a whole, which benefits each of the companies that make up the industry as well as consumers.
