  FORUM8 has provided the software and technology services which support the designing of civil engineering and construction including structure design since the company foundation, on the basis of the development technology of packaged software. With the development of virtual reality of recent years, FORUM8 products are widely utilized in a whole project, research of traffic and automobile, and information systems. Social request for the technology related to the safety and security is growing much further. FORUM8 is acting with the company mission to bring the safety and security to the society through the software development and service technology.

  Foundation of our growth is the development of creative general-purpose software. So far, we have developed and improved the virtual reality software UC-win/Road and the dynamic non-linear analysis software UC-win/FRAME (3D) as the advanced software ahead of other companies. In 2009, we released Engineer's Studio® and VR-Cloud®, which are supporting our strategic deployment. After FEMLEEG, Geo Engineer's Studio, and Shade3D were added to FORUM8 product portfolio through M&A, we have expanded our 3D VR CG business and have been providing products and solutions optimized for BIM/CIM. As for the cloud service, UC-1 for SaaS has been released in 2013, and "3DCADStudio®" and "3D bar arrangement CAD" have been provided for Android. 3DVR Cloud "VR-Cloud®" has been chosen as the cloud contract research from Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. We have acquired a lot of patents thanks to it. In 2019, we released Suite Series Accounting software (Construction Accounting / Corporate Accounting / Payroll), Data Eraser Suite, Suite Chidori Engine, and VR-NEXT® for multi-platform.

  On the other hand, as for the activities to improve the in-house system and to strengthen the organization, many international standards have been introduced such as Quality Management System (QMS), Information Security Management System (ISMS), Business continuity management system (BCMS), and PrivacyMark certification. In 2016, we acquired Environmental Management System (EMS) and are aiming to improve environment by spreading cloud and improving quality.

  Self-developed core system supports the development and sales, and we were selected as "Top 100 Aggressive IT SME of Japan Award" by METI in 2015. We also have received "CRM Best Practice Award" and other company awards. In December 2019, FORUM8 is awarded The 8th Monodzukuri Nippon Grand Awards METI Minister's Award for Connection acceleration among various technologies and industries by UC-win/Road open data cooperation. We also made significant progress in changing the way of we work as we were certified as an "Eruboshi" company that promotes women's participation and advancement in the workplace, and also received "The 2018 Health & Productivity Management Enterprises Certification" in the large-scale corporation division.

  Product support and service have had a high evaluation, and a lot of people have attended our technical seminars. FORUM8 released the 128th issue of our public relations magazine Up&Coming. At the "13th FORUM8 Design Festival 3Days+Eve" in November 2019, specialists from 4 government ministries delivered lectures in front of a large audience at the 4th "Autonomous Driving Conference."

We celebrated the 30th anniversary in May 2017 and organized several celebratory projects while making further achievements. We sponsored our own TV program and published a book named "VR Impact" (Diamond Inc.). We also compiled a company history booklet and held a special lecture and party in celebration of the company's 30th anniversary. We appreciate all our users for the support you have given us.
