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.
Students and schools
We establish startup center, closely cooperate with universities and invite students to work on our smart projects.
Our system is connected to National tourist system which gives all tourist information and benefits to tourists' hands.
Thanks to Business Club, entrepreneurs can increase their knowledge by deepening their knowledge in marketing and entrepreneurship.
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.
The official city web portal, which is built on an open, progressive platform with a focus on simple orientation and motivation to visit the city's website regularly and on life situations of inhabitants.
The intelligent portal will serve people and will be the basic information framework of the city. The inhabitant finds exactly what he needs through a unique search engine, and clearly-designed life situations. The portal contains informative and legal parts and it always tries to get an inhabitant to the life situation he is looking for. The inhabitants also have a client zone and the opportunity to comment on city projects or to engage to a various surveys. Everything by using only three clicks, everything clear and intuitive. The city web portal will learn from its users and will adapt to them.
The entire web portal is very user-friendly and sophisticated for the city's administrators.
Module of the web portal: POI modul, where inhabitants can find a list of all merchants with instant online booking and payment options.
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.
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.
Mobile app is also a web portal add-on. The city inhabitant finds news, current events that can be put into the planner, life situations, he can report a problem in the city, he can see solutions to problems in the city, and the parents can see their child's school attendance, their own City card, town administration and push notifications from areas of interest.
STUDENTS AND SCHOOLS
SCHOOL ATTENDANCE SYSTEM
The system will be used to track attendance of employees of the school as well as students via City cards and Student's cards. With this system, by using the card, student can check-in and check-out at school, he can order a meal, can pay in the school buffet, can pay in the bus and also can pay within the city with some benefits. This allows parents supervise their child's school attendance online and also the finances directly in their local client area of the site and the mobile app.
TOURIST SITE WITH A TRIP PLANNER
A web-based tourist site with a clear structure of options for visitors to the city, interesting photos, videos and a funnel strategy that will be targeted to plan a trip. The tourist will be able to book and pay the trip on the web, and he can upload it via the e-pass to his tour card without having to print a voucher.
In partnership with MasterCard, we created a unique tourist card that favor tourists and will become your important marketing asset. The card can be used for payments, collection of loyalty points, getting discounts and other benefits.
Thanks to the Token technology, the card can be used as an entry ticket, too. The card is multifunctional, so it can be used whenever the contactless technology is available (e. g. transportation, ski resorts, sport halls, hotels and many more).
In 2016, 65% of people owned smarthphones while applications are their standard components. Our tourist application extends the functionality of web portal and in addition, it provides the navigation to points of interest, a virtual guide, a hotel assistant, rating and possibility to share experience. Simply everything necessary to the smooth trip, as well as to encouragement of other tourists.
