Measures aimed at individual optimization. As a result of this measure, as of the end of March 2021, each person was installed in public elementary and junior high schools nationwide. However, while public elementary and junior high schools prepare and lend terminals on the school side, many high schools employ BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), which brings terminals arranged by students and parents themselves to class.・ Parents need to purchase a device at the time of admission. In order to optimize the ICT education environment fairly and individually, it is desirable to unify the specifications of terminals, but in the case of BYOD, there is a problem that it is difficult for educational institutions to manage terminals arranged by students and parents. rice field.

In addition to selling books, we also sell equipment such as furniture and ICT equipment to improve the educational environment. From 2016, we built an EC site in collaboration with our business partner, an educational institution, and started selling BYOD terminals. In order to sell recommended PCs for students at a price for the campus, we adopted “MakeShop by GMO” that can build a dedicated page that can be viewed only by specific users with standard functions, and a distribution with information on the EC site. It is operated by a mechanism that only the students who saw it can order. “Make Shop by GMO” can be built in a short period of time, and order management, aggregation, and analysis are easy, so we are thinking of expanding it to other educational institutions in the future.
