Tokai Create, the $25m-a-year software house that is marketing the Japanese language version of Paperback Software’s VP-Planner 1-2-3-alike (CI No 666) started life as a mainframe software house; VP-Planner – which was actually created by a Canadian company, Stephenson Software of Vancouver, joins Tokai Create’s microcomputer products portfolio which already accounts for 20% of its revenue with just two products, the Japan-Yukara word processor and the Swing relational database manager; VP-Planner is being adapted for the top-selling NEC 9801 personal computer, and to accept data from Microsoft’s Multiplan, which is Japan’s best-selling spreadsheet, and from Swing; in return, Paperback Software hopes to take some of Tokai Create’s software for customisation and marketing in the US.
