Fujitsu Releases GLOVIA/Process C1, a Core Business System for the Processing Industry

Adapts to cloud environments and multiple languages, strengthens corporate governance and global operations

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, May 14, 2012

Fujitsu and Fujitsu Systems East today commenced sales of a newly enhanced version of GLOVIA/Process C1, a core business system for customers in the processing industry who handle goods such as chemicals, petroleum and food products.

GLOVIA/Process C1 is a core business system tailored to the processing industry that provides managerial support to companies by overseeing sales, procurement, production, inventories and costs. In addition to offering cloud environment support, the latest version, which is geared toward global business expansion, also supports multiple languages and features improved operability.

As a result, the new solution provides assistance for corporate governance and managerial decision-making applications, including those involving group companies, while also helping companies to implement global operations aimed at overseas development.


In the processing industry for goods such as chemicals, petroleum and food products, there is currently a tremendous need to address a wide range of challenges. These include risks associated with fluctuations in supplies of raw materials and currency exchange rates, M&A involving forays into different business areas, issues associated with expanding a company's overseas operations and resource constraints due to natural disasters. To respond flexibly to such changes in the business environment, prompt and fully optimized decision-making and operational capabilities are indispensable.

Boasting a track record of deployment by more than 80 customers in the processing industry, Fujitsu's GLOVIA/Process C1 has helped customers streamline and increase the sophistication of managerial processes by implementing standardized, common procedures for managing sales, purchasing, inventories and costs.

The new version has been upgraded to run on private cloud platforms, thereby enabling the system to be built quickly, securely and inexpensively. Moreover, the system's support for multiple languages aids in global expansion, enabling real-time cost and profitability information from all of a company's business locations throughout the world to be taken in.

This new system will be on exhibit at Fujitsu Forum 2012, to be held on Thursday, May 17 and Friday, May 18 at the Tokyo International Forum in Tokyo.

Service Features

1. Supports group companies in implementing corporate governance via a cloud environment

A private cloud can be built based on GLOVIA/Process C1's work processes. In addition, the system is compatible with Fujitsu's "FGCP/S5(1)" public-cloud service, which boasts a track record of deployment for a wide range of cloud applications. As a result, group companies can quickly and inexpensively deploy the system, thereby aiding in successful corporate governance.

2. Multi-lingual support promotes smooth global operations

The system offers English, Japanese and Chinese language support. This, in turn, enables companies to establish global operations capable of quickly monitoring fluctuations in costs and profitability at each of their business locations—a growing challenge for customers expanding their businesses globally. Not only does the system allow users to ascertain real-time cost and profitability information from each business location, it also provides multilateral support for managerial decision-making through a variety of simulations, such as on the cost impact of fluctuations in prices of raw materials, income projection, and production facility optimization. Furthermore, the system can display global inventory status information, enabling optimized, robust global inventory and asset management. Moreover, the system can keep tabs on losses incurred during production, such as waste materials and utilities (electricity, gas, etc.), thereby helping to improve environmental management practices.

3. Operability improvements enhance usability for multiple users

Operability has also been improved, facilitating usability for multiple users in different group companies. With the addition of a side menu, movement between work screens has been made smoother, while the reference screen (for inventories and shipments) and the input screen (for orders and sales) can be displayed simultaneously, reducing the user's operational workload, which, in turn, improves the efficiency of operations.

4. Low-cost deployment

Fujitsu is offering company-wide licenses, making it easier to deploy the system across group companies. Moreover, features that had previously been options are now standard, enhancing availability.
