Abstract

Disclosed is an idea of easy and convenient umbrella rental process using imode(*) and Web Application System. Using this idea, authentication process is simplified yet the reliability of it is still maintained relatively high. In addition, fee collection is done by a carrier (Telecommunication company) so that building a fee collection system from a scratch is not necessary. However, since a carrier only collects fees for providing information, the fee is collected not for rented umbrellas but for providing inventory information to a user in this idea. *Trademark of NTT DoCoMo, Inc.
