Multibook’s History

Have been providing implementation of global ERP(SAP) for 20 years since the foundation

Founded in 2000 and have supported overseas expansion of Japanese companies through global ERP(SAP) since the foundation.

If it does not exist, we should make it ourselves

The development of multibook started when a client of a major company asked us to find ERP software suitable for small and medium-sized overseas subsidiaries.
Then, we looked ERP software that met the request. However, all we could find was ERP software for large-scale bases or low priced local softwares that lack important functions. We thought " if it does not exist, we should make it ourselves" and developed a Cloud-Based Accounting/ERP software,"multibook", for overseas subsidiaries in 2015 by making use of our expertise in system consulting in more than 30 countries and experience in offshore development in Philippines.
