Local government case using SmartPOST
As the first initiative using “SmartPOST”, we are conducting a “digital support campaign” in Omaezaki City, Shizuoka Prefecture, where cashless points are given to citizens who apply electronically using their My Number card and smartphone. By using “SmartPOST”, we have realized a system that can be completed digitally not only from citizens’ applications but also from the city to the sending of lottery result notifications.
Achievements of “SmartPOST” in Omaezaki City
Residents will electronically apply to participate in this campaign using the digital ID “xID app” that can be linked with their My Number card. As for the result of the campaign, the city staff will use “SmartPOST” to send a message to the residents with the result notification and the gift number. Citizens can get cashless points by using gift numbers.
The application period for the campaign has ended, and 5,101 citizens (16% of the population of Omaezaki City (*1), 30% of the number of My Number cards issued (*2)) have applied.

Utilization of “SmartPOST” for childbirth and childcare support subsidies Currently, I think that local governments across the country are considering methods such as contacting expectant and nursing mothers, providing benefits, and conducting questionnaires regarding the “subsidy for childbirth and childcare support” project. By utilizing the point payment scheme that utilizes “SmartPOST” in Omaezaki City, we believe that it will be possible to digitize the interaction with residents in the project, reducing the administrative burden on staff and improving convenience for residents.
When combined with giftee’s digital gift, which is linked with xID, it is possible to quickly and digitally specify gifts related to childbirth and child-rearing, and pay with easy-to-use cashless points.

What is SmartPOST
“SmartPOST” is a mail DX service for local governments that is linked with the digital ID “xID app”. Local governments will be able to send paper and digital mail separately without making any major changes to their existing mailing workflow, which will also lead to a reduction in mailing costs. In addition, electronic administration services such as electronic applications and facility reservations can be reliably guided to residents using “SmartPOST”, and communication with residents can be digitized all at once. Residents can receive information from the local government on their smartphones, improving the convenience of viewing, storing, and managing. In addition, since it uses the xID app linked to the My Number Card, it is also possible to receive customized information that only you need.
