transcosmos linked DOCOMO “d living” chat app to “LINE” to help DOCOMO launch “Parent-Child Communication” service which supports parents watching over their children
Supports DOCOMO in delivering a service that casually connects parents with their children via “LINE” talk and home smartphone/tablet
February 7, 2018
transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda) assisted NTT DOCOMO, INC. (hereafter, DOCOMO) in launching their “Parent-Child Communication” service which supports parents watching over their children by connecting “LINE” with the chat app of “d living” offered by DOCOMO.
“Parent-Child Communication” service enables parents to connect with their children when they are away from home via “LINE”. Once installing a special app on their home smartphone/tablet and connecting these devices to “LINE”, users can use various features including a “back home / left home notification” which is a feature that notifies parents when their children are back home or have left home, and a “messaging” feature which enables parents to exchange messages with their children who are at home.
Today, dual-earning families with children have less time to spend with their children and have ever increasing concerns about child-related family matters such as “don’t know how my child spends his/her day” and “don’t have much in common with my child to talk about”. In order to address these concerns, “Parent-Child Communication” service was developed under the concept of “connecting a family by filling the gap in time and space”. With this service, parents can casually connect with their children by sending messages in their spare time even when they cannot make time to call from work or other places.
“Parent-Child Communication” key features
- - Convert “LINE” talk text messages to voice and send the voice messages to home smartphone/tablet
- - Convert voice messages recorded on home smartphone/tablet to text and send the text messages to “LINE”
- - Detect and notify parents when their children are back home / have left home via “LINE”
For DOCOMO to deliver this service, transcosmos helped DOCOMO implement “LINE Business Connect” and offered “DECAds Connect Edition”, its unique communication management platform. The platform seamlessly links DOCOMO “d living” connect server to “LINE”. transcosmos also delivers auto-reply services to support customer inquiries by connecting the platform to “Reply ai”, a platform for building and managing bots offered by its U.S. partner Reply, Inc.
