This may be considered as history of trading business. After the end of World War 2, Nihon Word Data Co., Ltd. from Osaka and a certain company from Tokyo cooperated to purchase a large amount used typewriter from GHQ and sold to trading business. After that, IBM had produced typewriter with magnetic card. However, only major companies could use this new type of typewriter since its price is quite expensive. Later, United States had introduced new type of typewriter called CPT (Cassette Powered Typewriting) which became well-known and had high sales volume in Japan. Nihon Word Data Co.,Ltd. which was agency of CPT in Kansai area had developed from MS/DOS era and sell HarborWrite® when MS-Windows was just released. Therefore, we could say that HarborWrite® is the first Windows version of trading support system in Japan or maybe of the world.
As requested from Nihon Word Data Co.Ltd., that was intended to sell HarborWrite® in Tokyo, our company has debuted in trading software business as Eastern Japan and oversea agency in 1995 (March 1, 1995). In the era of CPT, it was "trading dedicated equipment", but from the era of Windows, it became the era of trading system software. That is why since 1999 our company has turned into software development company. On the other hand, Nihon Word Data Co.Ltd., has become sole agency for Western Japan and China instead.
HarborWrite® is a system that is developed based on knowledge and experience in trading industry for over 50 years. Our company, specialized in developing software for business, has developed HarborWrite® by using Java/EJB and sold in December 2000. (It's our proud to successfully develop the world's first trading software with Java/EJB object-oriented).
That's all for the history of HarborWrite® as well as the origin of word processing software which borned from trading industry. The name HarborWrite ® comes from HarborLight(light of harbor) by changing the word Light to Write with the idea of Kansai people. Even most of Arcadia staffs are Kanto people, we also like this name.
