transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda; TSE First Section: 9715; hereafter, transcosmos) subsidiary Leonis & Co. (Headquarters: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; Partners: Keiji Ito and Matsutomo Uenishi; hereafter Leonis), which provides system development and consulting services with respect to omni-channel marketing, announces that they are officially patent approved by the Patent Office regarding the vital technology of an “electronic stamp” that can be “stamped” directly on to the smartphone’s display. This technology is implemented as an “electronic stamp function” within the omni-channel marketing tool “OFFERs” developed by Leonis.

Patent number Patent No. 5804398
Title of invention Electronic ticket system and program
Date of patent September 11, 2015

<Patent overview>
It is a technology which overlays the image with authentication and “already-used” stamps on smart device displays by matching multiple contact points simultaneously, and by collating their shapes, pre-registered and not, at physical terminals.

It can be said that this is a fundamental technology needed at point of service to authenticate coupons, tickets, stamp rallies, etc., with an “electronic stamp” by contacting a smart device with a physical terminal.

Electronic ticket system and program

This patent acquisition is essential to the use of an electronic stamp in digital devices such as smartphones. It enables smartphones and physical terminals to communicate simply by using the smartphone’s inherent “multi touch sensor” technology that allows multiple contact points on the display simultaneously.

With the advent of this technology, you can now authenticate and access performance usage just by sending coupons and electronic tickets to smartphones and pressing “electronic stamp” on the smartphone display at storefront and event venues. Since its implementation into the smartphone-based omni-channel marketing tool “OFFERs” in October 2013, this “electronic stamp” function has been used for marketing at brick and mortar businesses, and as a “ticket collector” function for electronic tickets at large scale box offices, which can easily service tens of thousands of people at each site due to the fact that there is no need to install an exclusive terminal.

Along with this patent, Leonis and transcosmos have pending numerous other related international patents (including unpublished), and plan on acquiring additional new patents as trends are considered. Moving forward, we will support the pace of physical and digital fusion, and advance the development of state-of-the-art service by having this patent technology as the axis.
