Saldanha Bay intros app in e-services drive
Developed by local tech firm AmoebaTSC, the app is aligned to function “effortlessly” with e-municipal systems, says a statement.
It is an engagement platform between citizens, municipality and service providers, featuring communication, emergency button, help-desk, utility management, services shopping, digital wallet and payments, document repository, events and facility management functionality.
“Technology is not the solution on its own, but is rather an enabler and catalyst to be utilised in innovative ways to achieve socio-economic development in and for our communities,” says Heinrich Metler, municipal manager of SBM.
The app, notes the statement, is one of the key building blocks for the municipality, the first of which is the installation of a single open access network.
