Please register your child’s guardian’s information and the Suica ID number on the back of your Totra or Suica in the town’s DX “HERO”. When a child holds their registered Totra or Suica over the reader installed in front of the classroom, their family will receive notification of their arrival and departure from school.

The transportation IC card “TOTRA” is one of the regional cooperation IC cards provided by “East Japan Railway Company” that can provide regionally unique services in addition to the functions of “Suica”.

[Background of our company starting child monitoring service] In recent years, it has become popular for police stations and schools to send suspicious person information emails using mobile phones, but families who receive emails are increasingly contacting schools to check if their children are present. It becomes a burden on the side. Therefore, readers can be installed at entrances and exits of entrances and exits, gates, and specific facilities, and by waving Suica or community cooperation IC cards over them, pre-registered families will be notified of their arrival and departure from school, making it possible to use them to watch over children. This made it possible to solve the problem.

[This occasion]
The introduction to the junior high school attached to Utsunomiya Junior College will be held as a public-private partnership at TOKYO UPGRADE SQUARE, a place where startups aim to obtain unprecedented growth opportunities by solving administrative issues. This was made possible through matching by the Utsunomiya City Tokyo Office.
