Applications for student benefits can now be processed through the local government's official LINE account!
As the first step in the "Smart Public Lab e-Application" demonstration experiment, applications for the Temporary Benefits for Supporting University Students and Others will be accepted. Until now, applications for this benefit have only been accepted by mail, and a copy of the student ID card, etc., had to be enclosed with the application. The introduction of the "Smart Public Lab e-Application" is expected to benefit not only the applicant by making it easier to submit the necessary documents with photographs, but also the staff by improving their workflow by accepting applications in data format instead of paper format.
In the future, we plan to expand the service to include various procedures such as application for issuance of a copy of resident registration certificate and seal registration certificate.
What is the new "Smart Public Lab e-Application" service to enhance resident satisfaction?
The "Smart Public Lab e-Application" is a service that PlayNext Labs is developing as part of its "Smart Public Lab" service for local governments, which allows users to complete procedures that previously required a trip to the local government office, simply by using their official LINE account.
This demonstration experiment will verify the improved convenience for citizens and improved operational efficiency for municipal employees through the introduction of the service.
Features of "Smart Public Lab e-Application
1. Procedures at the municipal office can be completed on line!
Procedures that previously required a trip to the municipal office, such as the issuance of a copy of the resident registration certificate and seal registration certificate, can now be done quickly and easily through the official LINE account of the local government. Since the service uses LINE, which is familiar to consumers, residents can easily use the "Smart Public Lab e-Application" without spending time on preparation.
2. Identification and electronic signatures are also available on line.
Since public personal authentication such as identity verification and electronic signature can be performed on LINE, there is no need for a dedicated device or a dedicated application. After holding up the LINE to the My Number Card and reading it, identification can be quickly performed and various procedures can be smoothly carried out. The rate of issuance of My Number Cards is on the rise nationwide, and together with the high penetration rate of LINE, this function is a convenience that many residents will find useful.
LINE Pay Public Personal Authentication Service provided by LINE Pay Inc. is used for public personal authentication on LINE.
3. Support for online payment
Payment of fees, such as delivery fees and shipping charges, can be settled on the spot. Various payment methods, such as credit cards and electronic money, are also supported to meet a wide range of user needs.
4. Acquired international standard ISMS
The system, which has acquired the international standard information security management system ISMS, further strengthens the operational system to defend against threats such as information leaks, unauthorized access, and data falsification, enabling safe and secure use of the system.
Background of Implementation
In October 2021, DMM concluded an agreement regarding the "Regional Activation Entrepreneurship Program*" promoted by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, and dispatched one of its employees to Okawa City.
Since FY2021, we have been working with Okawa City on the "Digital Transformation Acceleration Project," aiming to solve local issues and improve citizen services in the digital age through step-by-step digital implementation.
So far, as the first phase of measures, the communication application "LINE" and an online application service for administrative procedures have been introduced to Okawa City to promote the digitalization of administrative services and internal administrative operations.
