transcosmos inc. hereby announces that the company has released "Location User Picker," a service that informs usage status of business offices, commercial facilities and educational institutions via LINE. The service is available on "LINE Marketplace," an enterprise service operated by LINE Corporation (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; Chief Executive Officer: Takeshi Idezawa) that offers and sells applications that connect with LINE API.

 

 

With this new app, users can receive useful information from facility managers via LINE by scanning QR code set at commercial facilities, banks and other financial institutions, public facilities such as universities and libraries that the users have friended with their LINE Official Accounts, and then sending the scanned data from their LINE chat screen.

 

  • What you can do with the app


Understand the usage status of public facilities that have an open door policy

 

Manage employees' attendance and facility usage status at offices

 

Deliver useful information to users such as space occupancy and seating availability

 

  • Example of usage at offices (identify close contacts of persons with Covid-19)

 

 

 

This is an optimum service for companies that manage and operate facilities that are open to all kinds of users to find out the status of the facilities at real-time. By adding registration data according to purposes, the app can be used for employee attendance management, as well as for managing meeting and break room user status in business offices. This enables businesses to take preventive measures against the spread of coronavirus infections by sending messages to employees who are identified as close contacts of persons with coronavirus when there is an outbreak. What's more, with its optional plan, clients can leverage usage data available by the app to deploy highly user-friendly features that let users check facility's space occupancy and receive a message when a seat becomes available.
