Saison Information Systems Co., Ltd. (JASDAQ:9640) (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President: Kazuhiro Uchida; herein, “Saison Information Systems”) is the maker of HULFT, middleware for managed file transfer (MFT). Kashiwa City located in Chiba, a prefecture bordering on the east side Tokyo, Japan, will adopt HULFT for implanting a point card system to enhance civic health services as part of their “Kashiwa-no-ha Smart City” initiatives.

About Kashiwa City’s Health Promotion Initiatives

The municipal government of Chiba Prefecture’s Kashiwa City is embarking on implementing a set of “Kashiwa-no-ha Smart City” initiatives as part of its ongoing town planning. The aim is to further promote longevity and help all generations to live safer and healthier lives.

A "Health Points System" will be implemented to encourage healthier lifestyle habits by letting its citizens earn points. This is part of the various activities being promoted throughout Japan by the national government to encourage citizens to take better care of their health, thereby reducing overall medical expenses.

Implementation of the "Health Points System"

MEDICA Cloud Inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; CEO: Ichiro Miyagawa; herein, “MEDICA Cloud”), develops and provides IT solutions for hospitals and clinics. The company is supporting Kashiwa City’s initiatives by providing the signage stations called Sukoyaka Links that track the physical activity of citizens such as how far they walked each day. Based on this data, citizens can earn points which can be exchanged for shopping certificates.

MEDICA Cloud has set up signage stations in the city’s major shopping center, LaLaport KASHIWANOHA . These provide residents with health support services. Residents can get information on their health points and obtain shopping certificates without needing to use their own smartphones or PCs.


Saison Information Systems' HULFT managed file transfer (MFT) middleware was used to transfer the residents’ activity data between the point card system and the signage terminals collecting the data from the activity meters.

Since the data was personal information, protection of the residents’ privacy was the top priority. HULFT enabled the systems of the various organizations involved in the initiatives to be integrated efficiently while maximizing security and reliability.


Compatible with an ever-growing range of platforms since its launch in 1993, HULFT is managed file transfer (MFT) middleware equipped with all the functionality enterprises need to share files between business systems. As of the end of March 2017, there are currently 189,600 HULFT licenses in use by 8,700 companies in 43 countries worldwide, spanning a broad range of industries. In addition to sending, receiving and managing file transfer jobs, HULFT also includes peripheral functions essential to transferring files, including security and integration of data before and after transfer.
