Childcare workers at daycare centers in Japan face a growing workload. To resolve this social issue, we have developed an attendance monitoring system using ICT that allows childcare workers to focus on childcare by reducing the time needed for record keeping and reporting with regards to children's attendance at childcare centers. This system has been credited with greatly streamlining work at childcare centers.

We recently began providing this solution commercially.
