Works Applications Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director and Chief Executive Officer: Masayuki Makino; hereinafter "WAP") has announced their intent to help clients comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) at no additional cost. This announcement is in line with the company’s industry-disrupting product concept “Free Version Up” and is applicable to its “AI WORKS” and “COMPANY” products. WAP addresses the ever-evolving business processes and compliance regulations of its existing users, and in this case, supporting their GDPR compliance activities.
As a global ERP system provider, WAP will provide free upgrades to help its clients comply with new international regulations
The GDPR is a new data protection law set forth by the European Union (EU) for residents living in Europe. Regardless of whether companies have local offices in Europe, they are required to comply with the new laws for the handling of personal data of their employees living in Europe. As WAP’s products are used in more than 52 countries around the world, it is willing to support its clients comply with new international regulations, realizing its “Free Version Up” product concept.
WAP’s 3 unique product concepts
Customization is often the reason for failures and budget overruns in ERP implementations. WAP’s “Non-customize” eliminates these problems.
Our modern ERP technology creates a tailored business management solution for our clients, addressing everything from new business processes to compliance with regulations. Industry and vertical functionalities are pre-configured based on proven market best practices (from our customer base of 1,300 leading companies operating across 52 countries) and often, no custom coding is needed to configure the technology to a new clients’ needs. This allows our existing and new clients to remain on the most current version of software without the fear of upgrades disrupting their businesses processes. As our products keep up with the new innovative business processes of our clients (mainly leading global companies), they evolve with new functionalities, bringing benefits to both our existing and new clients.
2. Free Version Up
A costly Add-On is often required as business processes change to adopt new technologies, comply with regulations, or support internal organization changes. WAP’s “Free Version Up” eliminates these problems.
In this digital era, companies need to be agile and change their business processes to cope with new technology, regulation as well as business models. At a fixed maintenance fee, we are committed to support our clients with their change management processes. Upon our assessment that the new request is necessary for our clients to innovate their business operations, we will provide the upgrade for free, giving our clients assurance as well as clarity of their long-term IT system costs.
3. Guaranteed maintenance support
We put ourselves into our clients’ position and cooperate with clients to quickly solve their problems.

In fact, for the past 20 years, we have received the full support of our clients in solving a wide spectrum of their problems, from system implementation to maintenance support.
