Message from President
Satoshi Kuroda

Person-to-Person, Person-to-AI, and Person-to-Robot.
We support diverse communications via our proprietary technologies.

Societies have greatly changed. Thus business activities have begun to change by doing what must be done in order to respond to them. Communications within organizations, amongst organizations, and the communications amongst companies and individuals are essential in this period of change.
In conjunction with ISE leveraging its strengths as an engineering company that has mastered communication methodologies up to the levels whereby they are provided as professional services, ISE is building upon its system development achievements which it has accumulated since the dawn of ICT, thus we are providing solutions that incorporate cutting-edge technologies such as AI and robotics, etc. and proprietary technologies.
When it comes to our clients, and in our societal contributions, ISE has always endeavored to provide services from the perspective of “What is it that is optimal.” As an engineering company which actualizes the resolving of issues in various fields’ operations, such as manufacturing, instrumentation, logistics, operations, medical care, and nursing care, etc. via the systems that support communications, so from here onwards, we shall continue to walk with our clients, and partners.
