Release of “iDATEN EX2,” the DIS service for constructing an EC site for BtoBtoB
-New built-in functions render it usable by tablet PCs and smartphones, and dramatically reduce workload-


Daiwabo Information System Co., Ltd. (hereafter referred to as DIS; Head office: Chuo-ku, Osaka; President: Yoshihiro Nogami) has decided to release the “iDATEN EX2 (” on May 26, 2014. The “iDATEN EX2” is the DIS service for constructing an EC site for BtoBtoB, and is compatible with “EC-Orange,” the EC site-constructing package developed by S-cubism Technology, Inc. (hereafter referred to as S-cubism Technology; Head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President: Masanori Takeshita). S-cubism Technology has already shipped the “EC-Orange” to more than 450 companies.

The “iDATEN EX2” is a cloud computing service for constructing an EC site for BtoBtoB, which allows DIS dealers to register their own products in addition to the DIS database, which contains about 600,000 items, using a tablet PC or smartphone. They can thereby dramatically reduce their workload by making product presentations to customers using their tablet PC or smartphone.

With the help of the “iDATEN EX2,” dealers can easily construct their own “EC site” for corporate customers, in which they can add their own products to the DIS product database, which contains about 600,000 products including PCs, software, and information appliances, available through the “iDATEN (*1),” and can utilize the same-day delivery provided by the DIS distribution infrastructure, through more than 10 distribution centers across the country. In addition to these functions, provided by the existing “iDATEN EX,” the “iDATEN EX2” features such additional functions as product recommendation, point/coupon issuance, and download and sales, all of which are offered in cooperation with S-cubism Technology’s “EC-Orange” (*2), to augment its functionality as a useful tool in various business situations.
