EFSS (Enterprise File Sync & Share) is not easy to get right, so rather than implementing its own proprietary solution, the Tokyo-based company chose to reuse off-the-shelf products made by Aegif.

Unknown to users, the backend is NemakiWare, an open source CMIS-compliant ECM server, running on AWS.
The accounting company cited the following reasons for offering this service to their customers:

- Receiving less documents via email means being more careful when receiving one, leading to stronger resilience to viruses and social engineering.
- Less risk of data loss.
- Lower entry barrier to feature-rich document management.
- Better collaboration between employees.
