CAC Holdings Corporation

HOME > Corporate Information > History


With more than 50 years of experience in construction and the operation of business information systems

The CAC group started as Computer Applications Co., Ltd. (CAC), the first independent software company in Japan, in 1966 under the philosophy “to construct user-oriented information systems from a neutral standpoint independent of hardware manufacturers.” Up to the present, as the prime contractor, we have steadfastly maintained our management policy to develop and provide information systems optimum for our clients and users following their needs based on the founding philosophy to be fully liable for our products and services as well as to be independent and neutral and user-oriented.

Since our founding, while we engaged in system development for a wide range of industries, our business has expanded into system integration (SI), including construction of system infrastructure. In addition, based on the idea that “a specialist company should undertake the operation and management of the information systems of our customers in order to support their business,” our group company, Nippon System Service Co., Ltd. (SSK), was reorganized into the first company dedicated for outsourcing service of information processing in 1971. In 1973, System Utility Co., Ltd. (SUC) was launched, focusing on information processing and document-filing service. Thus our group came to offer comprehensive information service.

In 1994, the above mentioned three companies were merged and rebranded as CAC Co., Ltd., consolidating our system to seamlessly offer full service of the process from planning to development and operation of a system. CAC went public in 1999.

Since 2000, ARK System Co., Ltd., YUASA KNOWLEDGE INDUSTRY Co., Ltd, (present CAC Knowledge Co., Ltd.), ORBIS CORPORATION (present CAC ORBIS CORPORATION), and MARUHA SYSTEMS CORPORATION (present CAC MARUHA NICHIRO SYSTEMS CORPORATION), which had been subsidiary IT companies of our clients and users, respectively, have become our affiliates, which allowed us to expand the outsourcing business.

In recent years, through acquisition of CRO companies, we have been broadening the service lineup of pharmaceutical development support and spun off that business into a separate company, named CAC EXICARE Corporation, in April 2012. Now this field is one of the pillars of the CAC group, along with IT service.

Furthermore, in March 2014, we obtained shares of an Indian based company, Accel Frontline Limited (present Inspirisys Solutions Limited), and made it into our subsidiary, in order to enhance our global service capabilities.

Since we switched to a holding company structure in April 2014, with CAC Holdings Corporation as the core, the corporate group has been offering IT service for companies as well as BPO service, focusing on our specialized areas.
