Solving regional issues using electronic stamps

Solving regional issues using electronic stamps

Our regional e-currency service solutions mainly use electronic stamps.
Normally, accepting IC card and credit card payments requires special terminals to be distributed to all affiliated stores. Since this requires local governments and retail outlets to pay for construction fees and other expenses, we provide electronic stamps which can be introduced for just a few thousand yen.

Simply setting up an electronic stamp at each affiliated store enables customers who visit and want to use e-currency for payment to do so by simply stamping the screen on their smartphone when the electronic payment screen is displayed.

What’s distinctive about this stamp is that it runs on human static electricity and doesn’t require any batteries or power supply. Communications are also handled through the customers smartphone, so there’s no need for any internet equipment in the store either. There are six bumps on the back of each stamp, and when they make contact with a smartphone, the device confirms the coordinates, then transmits the data to our company servers over the internet. This then registers the person, retail outlet, and payment amount data on our system. This solution enables smooth electronic payment without downloading an app or installing internet connection equipment and payment terminals.

Since it uses a stamp, which is deeply-rooted in Japanese culture, rather than a payment terminal, this system is also easy to use for elderly people. In addition, it also eliminates the need for the complex work of totaling, billing, and managing required with paper cash vouchers. For these reasons, many municipalities have adopted our system.

Diversity & Inclusion

Our employees are the resources which support the continuous growth of our company, and we consider maintaining diversity to be an essential part of achieving a strong organization which can take on new initiatives.

At giftee, we strive to achieve a workplace environment with the opportunities and facilities necessary for our diverse human resources to utilize their unique personalities and skills, determining posts and treatment based on fair evaluations of roles, results, and abilities.

We aim to create an organization which can develop innovation through free sharing of thoughts and opinions, multiplying the strengths of each individual employee rather than adding them, and working toward the achievement of our mission.

Employee Engagement

We are working to create a workplace in which each employee takes an active role in their work, experiences personal growth, and considers their job worthwhile, and aiming for increased employee engagement.

At giftee, we emphasize an open organization through efforts such as weekly information sharing sessions for all executives and meetings attended by the representative director where employees can speak frankly and ask direct questions to executive staff (TGIF).

In addition, we regularly implement opinion polls of all employees in order to maintain a quantitative understanding of job satisfaction levels as an indicator of employee engagement and continually carry out initiatives for identification and improvement of problem areas.
