Features of Soja City Smartphone City Hall PUSH type notification service From the Soja City LINE official account, residents who have pre-registered using their My Number cards will be notified of eligible government services, such as benefits, via PUSH. Eligible residents can complete the procedure simply by checking the benefit information received on LINE. This service will also be used for the “additional benefit” that was decided in the latest economic measures and provides 70,000 yen to households exempt from resident tax. By simplifying the process of mailing notifications, etc., benefits can be paid within the year. Approximately 5,000 households are expected to be eligible for additional benefits, and by completing residents’ applications digitally, staff workload is expected to be reduced by about 20%.

Soja City, Okayama Prefecture Mayor Soja Kataoka Soja City has opened a “Smartphone City Hall” with the desire to “ensure that citizens can use all administrative services comfortably.” In order to realize our strong desire to “deliver the 70,000 yen support grant to households exempt from resident tax as soon as possible, so that as many people as possible can spend the year-end and New Year holidays with a warm feeling,” we have launched a new initiative. We have started the “PUSH type notification service”. With the launch of this service, we will be able to deliver benefits to citizens “easier” and “earlier”, and payments will be made within the year. We hope that many citizens will take advantage of it.

Bot Express Representative Director Kazuki Nakajima Traditionally, when applying, you had to fill out and enter your information either on paper or online. We believe that this part can be made unnecessary by verifying the user’s identity in advance, which led us to create this service. Applications can be completed with just a few taps without entering any text. This service will make life much easier for residents. Our mission is “to update Japan’s administrative services.” We will continue to implement services that lead to behavioral changes for both residents and employees, continue to make improvements, and create an unprecedented administrative service experience.

– Collaborative agreement between Soja City and Bot Express to establish a smartphone city hall – On July 20, 2023, we entered into a collaborative agreement to establish a smartphone city hall to eliminate “troublesomeness” and opened Soja City Smartphone City Hall on the Soja City LINE official account. . Soja City, which has the highest population growth rate in the Chugoku region and has been working to improve various administrative services as a pioneer city in welfare culture, and a development company specializing in GovTech, provide services that serve as the basis for online administration to more than 190 local governments nationwide. This is an initiative to encourage behavioral changes among residents and city employees by working together with Bot Express to rapidly update administrative services to their ideal state. Details (including press conference video): https://note.bot-express.com/n/ncd116429bfecLINE ID: @soja_city Main functions: Application procedure (support for preschool children’s school lunch expenses, etc.), evacuation shelter search, trash sorting and collection date notifications, road defect reports, interactive response services using generated AI (inquiries about using your health insurance card with your My Number card, free school lunch equivalent, conversations with Chuppy), etc. How it works – Links Soja City’s LINE official account with “GovTech Express,” an interactive application for government offices developed and provided by Bot Express. GovTech Express uses Salesforce as a platform, which is also registered with ISMAP, a system for evaluating and registering cloud services that meet the security requirements of the Japanese government. Even if the data is entered through LINE, the data will be saved in the Salesforce system, and no personal or sensitive information will be saved on LINE.
