HENNGE Adds Full Cloud Integrated School Support System "BLEND" to the Linkage Solution of HENNGE One2023.11.08


HENNGE K.K. (headquarters: Shibuya, Tokyo, Representative Director, Chief Executive Officer: Kazuhiro Ogura, “HENNGE”) is pleased to announce that its cloud security service facilitating the safety and convenience of working environments, “HENNGE One,” now supports the full cloud integrated school support system "BLEND" provided by Motivation Works Inc.

In recent years, the implementation of one terminal per student in elementary and junior high schools under the GIGA School Concept has led to increased IT utilization and cloud adoption in educational settings. There is a growing demand for cloud-based operational systems in school administration to reform the working styles of educators, aiming at efficiency and flexibility. The focus is on cloud-based school support systems that centrally manage data such as attendance, grades, and business trip applications, allowing administrative tasks to be performed from locations outside the staff room.

By linking HENNGE One and BLEND, educational institutions using HENNGE One can use a single sign-on to BLEND, freeing them from the cumbersome management of multiple IDs and passwords. Furthermore, access control functions based on multi-factor authentication, such as IP restrictions and device certificates, allow secure use of BLEND while preventing the risk of unauthorized access.

HENNGE will continue to increase the number of SaaS that are linked with "HENNGE One" and support SaaS implementation that is both convenient and secure for companies.
