 We give first priority to the confidentiality of intellectual property investigation requests from our customers, since we are well aware that such information contains cutting-edge technologies and the most innovative ideas.
To achieve our ultimate security goal, not only do we deal with external intrusion and internet hacking, we have also put our best efforts in assuring our employees’ to follow our information security rules, thus constructing a responsible organization. We are proud to announce that we have been granted with ISO27009 from certification authority BSI
 Our surveillance camera in the elevator hall work 24 hours. We have also installed electronic locks on each door and a central electronic lock, both working 24/7 to provide double security means.


 Industrial globalization presents an inevitable challenge of international intellectual property investigation. We are keen on improving our investigation capability in English in regard to IP databases for the US and Europe.
As for now, half of our 40 analysts have obtained high TOEIC scores over 800. We aim to further strengthen this aspect and put it at the top of our agenda.
 The rapid emerging of China has proposed significant consuming market potential to manufactures, therefore leading to an increasing demand of China related investigations. We now have two Chinese analysts. Expanding our Chinese team has also been taken significant consideration.
 As we continue perfecting our services, we look forward to providing them to overseas customers.

Opportunities for outstanding females

 Women have proven their substantial role as workforce and a viable solution to the shrinking Japanese population. The four female winners in the past five patent search competitions have also made us believe the great compatibility of women in IP field. We, thus, are determined to provide such opportunities for women and help building their career as well as balancing family and work.
 We have introduced a vein authentication system from Hitachi Solutions to support our experienced female employees to work from home during certain circumstances, such as maternity.

Corporate name and Logo

 Wishing to support industries all over the world, and to answer any of your requests, our company is named "AZTEC" from the combination of "A to Z" and "technology".

 About our logo, we arranged a V-shape symbol, which is a combination of Venn diagram and check mark, together with our corporate name.
