Establishment and History

Establishment

After the burst of Japan's bubble economy, companies struggled to find new values, left in a world where, for many, the only path forward was to take advantage of information technology. However, they found difficulties because technology advanced in the blink of an eye, and the amount of information expanded with the speed of light.

Under these circumstances, Rococo was established in 1994 to offer round-the-clock, 365-day support services to companies in trouble. Starting with consultation, we offer comprehensive services ranging from system development to various kinds of support. Our clients are now able to focus on finding new value with our software, by outsourcing their help desk service and by utilizing the IT skills of our staff. We are committed to serve our clients and contribute to society.
