Award for the CitySys platform
The CitySys platform clearly received the best feedback from the jury in the category. The platform captured their interest with its openness and its capability to integrate several applications necessary to efficiently manage towns or cities, into a single system. CitySys enables you to monitor, evaluate, manage, and analyse data, increase the efficiency of town and city administration, lower overall operation costs and bring about better conditions for residents’ lives and business. The jury appreciated this technological and business openness, meaning the platform has the capability to be expanded with other modules and applications over time. It also permits integration with other systems from different vendors (parking, waste management, and others), which allows the platform to monitor important parameters of a particular city/town area within a single user interface.
OMS thereby confirmed its leading position amongst Slovak and Czech Smart technology providers.
