Big Advance, a Management Support Platform for Small- and Medium-Sized Companies

Under a name given by each financial institution such as in the style of “XX Big Advance,” each financial institution provides Big Advance services to small- and medium-sized companies with which they do business. Small- and medium-sized companies doing business with financial institutions that introduced Big Advance are able to use services by registering for membership online.
Big Advance is equipped with functions that support business strategy aspects, such as business matchings and partnerships, and daily operations of small- and medium-sized companies. Big Advance member companies can utilize the basic functions with a monthly fee of 3,000 yen plus tax without spending any initial costs.
The revenue from Big Advance is comprised of an initial introduction fee when introducing the service, and monthly operation and maintenance fees the company receives from financial institutions. The operation and maintenance fees are ongoing charges, comprised of monthly fixed-rate payments from financial institutions and payments generated from a revenue sharing model arising from monthly usage fees between financial institutions and member companies.
