Iwate Information Technology Co., Ltd. (Takizawa City, Iwate Prefecture, President and CEO, Koshi Abe, hereinafter "Iwate IT") and SB Payment Service Corp. (Minato-ku, Tokyo, President and CEO), a subsidiary of SoftBank Corp. Atsushi Hariba (hereinafter referred to as "SBPS") will link the childcare business support system "Ogaru System" developed by Iwate IT throughout Japan with SBPS's Online Payment Service, and will start "Oh" from November 25, 2021. Will start offering the payment function as "Pay". Parents who use the "Ogaru System" will be able to use Credit Card Payment and PayPay (Online Payment) in addition to the conventional fund transfer as payment methods for childcare fees.

Background of linking "Ogaru System" and SBPS's Online Payment Service

In 2015, the "New Child and Childcare Support System" was launched by the government to expand and improve the amount of early childhood school education and childcare, as well as local childcare support. Classification is set according to the reasons for needing childcare / education and the situation of parents, and the calculation and billing of childcare fees are more complicated than ever. Furthermore, due to the recent epidemic of the new coronavirus infection, it was necessary to review the operation of collecting money face-to-face with parents and handling cash. Therefore, Iwate IT will "go to the kindergarten" and "calculate" by linking the childcare business support system "Ogaru System", which allows children to calculate the childcare fee just by accepting the entrance and exit of the kindergarten, and SBPS's Online Payment Service. Since "billing" can be centralized, we have reached this cooperation for the purpose of reducing the work burden of childcare and educational facility staff and taking measures against infectious diseases of parents and children.

About "Ogaru System"

The "Ogaru System" is a childcare business support system for certified childcare centers, nursery schools, kindergartens, and after-school children's clubs, which was born from the voices of the field to solve problems in childcare and educational facilities. You can reduce the time for handwriting and manual calculation by various functions such as "going up and down management", "planning / diary creation", "fee calculation", and "children management". We are also developing many optional functions such as "Ogasuma", a communication tool for parents, "Ogabus", a bus location system, and "Ogasamo", which allows you to go up and down the park by face recognition along with temperature measurement. "Ogaru", which is also the origin of the system name, also has the meaning of "grow and grow" in the northern Japanese language. We wish for the healthy growth of children, and while incorporating the voices of the field, the system itself will continue to grow and realize warm education and childcare that only humans can achieve.
