“Plaza-i”, a real ERP system that brings a competitive advantage, was built on IIJ GIO to provide SaaS accounting system for overseas offices in Asia.

Business Associates Singapore Pte. Ltd. launched SaaS ERP system “Plaza-i” in Singapore. They leave infrastructure operation to IIJ, and focus on developing their application and supporting customers.

Provide SaaS type accounting system overseas

Plaza-i is usually integrated as an on-the-premise system in Japan, however, in overseas offices there are not many users to justify the cost for integrating on-the-premise system. There is also a strong cost-sensitive trend. Which leads Business Associates to provide SaaS type service in Singapore. IIJ GIO Singapore Service is used as its robust and reliable infrastructure.

Peace of mind for hassle-free operation

Upon system implementation, direct support from the technical team in both Japan and Singapore offices is essential to the smooth start-up of SaaS service. That flexibility and smooth access is the biggest difference over other cloud service providers.

Smooth information sharing with Japan headquarters

With respect to accounting information of overseas offices, local side operations often makes headquarters uneasy. With SaaS accounting system, both local offices and headquarters are able to confirm the same content on the same platform. Furthermore, by utilizing the cloud infrastructure directly connected to IIJ backbone, staff on either sides can use the system without delay.


What IIJ delivered

  • Provide infrastructure to cloud ERP system “Plaza-i” in Singapore.
  • Flexibility and cost effectiveness for launching a SaaS service.
  • Outsourcing infrastructure operation allows Business Associates to focus on application development and customer support.
