Mystery called SmartCity...
SmartCity seems to be like Loch Ness monster. Everybody talks about it, look like they know everything about it, however, nobody has seen it properly...
ABOUT THE PROJECT
What is a SmartCity really about? To analyze what a city truly needs, we met with a number of city experts and tourism groups, reviewed payment card systems and participated in several conferences. We held discussions with colleagues from major IT companies, the Slovak Tourism Board, CzechTourism and various ministries, and we met with the departments and employees in a number of big cities. We got to know some of the organizations working on the ground in these cities, spent some time at Matej Bel University and, most important of all, asked regular people and entrepreneurs alike what they lack and how they would approach the topic of a SmartCity.
All of the presentations we saw on SmartCities were focused on the Internet of things, or hardware that different groups wanted to implement in their cities. In these presentations, no one actually paid enough attention to the people living in these cities! So we took a different approach. Instead of technology only, our emphasis was mainly on connecting with people – citizens, entrepreneurs, tourists, students and schools.
We drag citizens into the city's dynamics while providing them with the constant access to information about the city and its benefits.
Thanks to Business Club, entrepreneurs can increase their knowledge by deepening their knowledge in marketing and entrepreneurship.
Our system is connected to National tourist system which gives all tourist information and benefits to tourists' hands.
Students and schools
We establish startup center, closely cooperate with universities and invite students to work on our smart projects.
In cooperation with our partners, we were able to create a system that connects citizens, entrepreneurs, tourists, students and schools with the city. In order to achieve simplicity, the whole system runs in one administration interface.
We will switch your old web portal for new intelligent one that will work as an informational backbone of the city. The citizen can manage official documents, communciate with the city bureaus, find information about the city projects, free-time activities and even monitor the school activities and grades of their children.
In partnership with MasterCard, we developed the unique City Card project that will favor citizens and become important marketing asset. The card can be used for payments, getting discounts, collection of loyalty points and other benefits.
Citizens can either purchase the brand new City Card or can use the existing debit card (such as MasterCard and Visa) they already own. Thanks to the Token technology, it can be used as entrance ticket, it is possible to pay with it in public transport vehicles, for parking and more.
In 2017, it is estimated that 65% of people are smartphone owners. And applications are their common part. Our city application provides users with the possibility to report problems in the city, share their experience. Moreover, app provides possibilities of web-based portal and city card (as you can verify via NFC). Citizens can also receive push notifications with the information of their interest.
TRANSPORT BUS SYSTEM
In partnership with Telmax, we offer complex bus system for cities and regions. The system allows citizens to use their City Card as their current debit card or purchase pre-paid card in order to travel by bus. By selecting the right tariff and by enclosing their card, they can immediately travel, get discounts and loyalty points based on the system settings. Tickets can be purchased via web-based portal with the validity for a day, week, month or other alternative.
The system has been already used in thousands of buses in Slovakia and Czech republic. It increases the interest in using bus services among citizens because it is more accessible, comfortable and easier to use.
