    Kagawa Prefecture has been strategically promoting investment in the prefecture by formulating the “Setouchi Investment Promotion 100 Plan,” an action plan compiling measures to attract investment for the next five to ten years, to further promote investment by attractive companies in the prefecture and lead to the creation of new jobs and development of the local economy. 

    Takamatsu City has been proactively promoting investment in the city to develop the local economy, upgrade and vitalize industries, and expand employment opportunities. To focus on attracting ICT-related companies, which appeal to younger generations, the city has been working to realize “Smart City Takamatsu,” a sustainable city that can solve various local issues, by utilizing ICT and data and collaborating with various players from industry, academia, and government.

    The TRYT Group, a leading placement company for the medical and welfare industries and a provider of digital solutions for the medical and welfare industries , opened an office providing placement and temporary staffing services in Takamatsu City in 2017 to support employment in Kagawa Prefecture.

    Since last year, the Group has been providing assistance in the implementation of elderly care software (ICT) that supports operational efficiency at elderly care facilities nationwide. Having deemed that we can contribute to revitalizing local communities through human resources by training IT personnel well versed in healthcare and creating new jobs by coordinating this initiative with the efforts promoted by Kagawa Prefecture and Takamatsu City, we have decided to open TRYT’s first ICT BPO Center in Takamatsu City. At the ICT BPO Center, we will work to solve social issues caused by the labor shortage facing the elderly care industry by providing operating instructions for elderly care software online to caregivers nationwide to ensure smooth introduction and operation of elderly care software that will alleviate the work load and improve productivity at elderly care facilities.

    * BPO stands for Business Process Outsourcing and refers to the outsourcing of a portion of a business process to a specialized operator.
