Asteria’s Business Plan
Asteria, along with its partners, has helped drive the digitalization and DX of various companies through system and cloud integration. ASTERIA Warp, its founding business, has expanded collaboration with partner companies since its launch in 2002 and has built the best sales structure in the industry. This led the company to become the leader in the domestic enterprise data integration software market for 16th consecutive year.
This business model has also been adopted in the mobile app building tool “Platio,” which has been on sale since 2017. Asteria has created a sales network by leveraging its unique know-how. As a result, the number of partner companies has exceeded 50. In addition, “Platio Connect” was released in January 2022, enabling app creation and data integration without coding. It has developed into a product whose specs allow partners to easily add value to, resulting in rapid growth in partner sales.
Responding to the rapid expansion of the Platio partner business, Asteria is scheduled to organize an award ceremony recognizing partners who made significant achievements in the Platio business. The ceremony will be held on the same day as ASTERIA Warp Partner Award, starting in FY2024.
Asteria will continue to help user companies boost productivity and achieve DX with partner companies.
