Application Developed by JBS
JBS developed an application called Hoiku Now, which linked the Now Platform and Microsoft Azure, which is one of JBS’s strengths.
This application streamlines communications between day-care centers and parents/guardians which tends to be paper-based and cumbersome and encourage communication and collaboration. The application digitizes all communications such as contact information, emergency exchanges, and the purchase of photos, and realizes communication by mobile phone regardless of time or place.
Points That Were Highly Regarded
- Realizes work style reforms for both parents/guardians and day-care staff
- Reduces anxiety during emergency response
