The "Cycle Event Support App" enables the user to share their location with friends and the event headquarters, based on their smartphone location information. When they need to make a rescue request, they can alert people to the situation with a simple message and picture post.
Many people from all across the country participate in cycle events, which play a major role in regional revitalization. This service can be easily introduced by both event organizers and participants, and it supports them in holding "safe, secure, and comfortable" events.

Case Study

  • Yahoo Japan Corporation
    Kahoku Shimpo Publishing Co.
    Tour de Tohoku

    In conventional tournament management, staff members used walkie-talkies, messenger apps, and handwritten memos, but with the introduction of this application, the location information of about 4,000 participants and staff and volunteers could be tracked real-time, enabling prompt and appropriate responses.
    In addition, based on the accumulated data, it clarified challenges and countermeasures for the next fiscal year's operations, making it useful for operational improvements.

  • Hiroshima TV
    Grand Tour Setouchi

    Since there are many long-distance ride courses, one issue is how to take appropriate and efficient measures when assisting participants.
    By introducing this service, they were able to track the status of rescue requests in real time based on location information, making it possible to give appropriate rescue instructions, which has also helped alleviate anxiety and stress of staff.
    Utilizing the accumulated data, they were able to reduce the number of rescue requests by considering safer courses and giving warnings through the app.
