When you have reach the concrete planning stage for your new services, please consult with the ICT support center regarding the content of your services.
Sample software (FCF that can read IC cards is uploaded at the below.
After downloading the compressed file (ZIP) and decompressing it, look at 'README' and use it.
In addition, to operate this software you will have to buy a PASORI RC-330 or RC-S370 card reader/writer, which is compatible with noncontact IC cards. It costs about 3,000\ in large retail stores. (※On some computer models, this device is already built-in.)
You have to have a printer and copying environment in which IC cards can be recognized. If your department is considering using printers and copiers that can recognize IC cards, please consult with the ICT support center. We can introduce manufacturers to you and give you other relevant information.

The new IC card is called FeliCa, and data is stored on it in FCF (the FeliCa Common-use Format.) Thus, a management system for building entrance and exit has to have read-write functions that enable it to respond to and read this data. For details, see persons in the departments that manage the buildings you are using.
