Construction and planning require a high level of understanding of detailed parts and close cooperation between specialised staff members from various fields, including design, construction, mechanical equipment and electrical equipment. In architecture and design, internal checking systems for structural designs have been strengthened in recent years. Ishimoto Architectural & Engineering Firm, Inc. is no exception, as their structural designs are all self-produced to ensure quality control. At the Structural Design Department based in Tokyo, the number of business trips required to branch offices in order to hold meetings increased in recent years, which led to a number of challenges, such as reducing the burden and increasing business efficiency for the architects. To solve meet these challenges, the Planning Affairs Department installed another brand's web conferencing system. It never spread through the company, though, because people complained that it was difficult to set up and operate, it was a bother to manage the license account, and it didn't have sufficient picture quality to let them talk while displaying materials on the screen. As a result, it didn't really solve their problems.
