Notice of Metaps Cloud Business Transfer


Metaps Holdings, Inc. has announced the transfer of its centralized SaaS management tool “Metaps Cloud” to SmartHR, Inc. (Minato-ku, Tokyo; Masato Serizawa – CEO) as of October 2, 2023.

Metaps Cloud is a centralized SaaS management tool that was released on an invitation-only basis in November 2020 and officially launched in March 2021. Against the backdrop of the dramatic increase in SaaS used by companies due to the coronavirus pandemic and the significant amount of time and effort required to manage them, Metaps Cloud provided both SaaS management and ID/password management to reduce the burden on information system personnel.

From this time, Metaps Cloud steadily increased its number of SaaS collaborations and active users and attracted the attention of SmartHR, Inc., who highly evaluated the business’ accumulated knowledge of business development in the IDaaS and SaaS management areas. Following this evaluation, Metaps Holdings, Inc. decided to transfer the business based on the judgment that further growth could be made by making the best use of Metaps Cloud’s accumulated knowledge under the supervision of the SmartHR, Inc.

SmartHR, Inc. operates the cloud HR software “SmartHR” and boasts an overwhelming No. 1 share in the labor management market. The company has begun to focus on a “multi-product strategy”, with the aim of creating a world in which all back-office operations will be connected around SmartHR in the future, now including Metaps Cloud.

Based on the belief that it is important to provide a seamless experience to customers and integrate Metaps Cloud systematically with SmartHR, we have agreed to temporarily terminate the Metaps Cloud service with the aim of providing a new service under SmartHR based on the knowledge and know-how accumulated under the Metaps Cloud product.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our customers and stakeholders for their understanding and warm support since the start of our service.

As we continue our efforts to further enhance our corporate value, we would like to ask for your continued understanding and support.
