Smart Cities
are made by
Smart Citizens!
How can we engage citizens to make our cities more social, rather than just more hi-tech?

Jorge Saraiva, CEO

Being part of the solution is everyone's responsibility!

As a tech lab we do our part by developing a city’s engagement platform.
Do your part! Have it installed in your city!

Margarida Lopes, COO

Citizen Centric: the paradigm shift!

To become more sustainable, cities will need to define its processes by starting to place the citizens in its cores.
That’s the secret for every Smart City: a citizen centric proposition!

Tiago Vieira, Designer

Reinterpret the city style.

What type of people does the city best serve? Who will love living here? This defines the city style.
Not only the aesthetics and design but also the entire communication.

Isabel Santos, Mobile Strategist

Hardware is already in place. Focus on software!

Most citizens have more computing power in their pockets than NASA had when sent a man to the moon. Why investing in sensors to plan higher liveable standards if you can just ask people?

Paulo Travassos, BI

Beyond data: emotions!

Data provides you numbers, if you transform it into information you get indicators. Move forward towards knowledge!
Instead of Indicators just work based on behaviours!

Monica Casanova, Engagement Expert

It is all about relations not transactions!

We live in the era of prosumers (producers and consumers simultaneously). You don’t supply a prosumer. You collaborate!
Citizens are prosumers so it is all about building a relation.

Pedro Viana, Strategist

Citizen engagement is a Mayor’s level decision!

Unlike most Smart Cities technologies, Citizen Engagement Platform is a social network of the size of your city. It is all about city values! And the elected Mayor personalizes values!

Domingos Araújo, Database Architect

Safe City

A City Platform deals with Internet of things, Internet of services and Internet of people! The focus on Internet of data is high priority considering its security. Privacy must be taken into consideration as well advanced digital security methods.

Maria Granado, Citizen Service

A Social City is Smarter City!

Focus on how people live and their expectations. Investigate the living pulse of the city. Establish a bi-directional dialog! Everyone will participate building a long-term city plan and combining forces for its execution.

Bruno Oliveira, UX

Tecxperiences for a new mindset!

When implemented, a social city is a “refresh” in citizens mindset! Residents won't see the city as it is but will start imagining the city as it should be!
Technology empowers!

Flávio Castro, Content Advisor

City Content!

Every city has a specific content! Content is the reflex of citizens’ way! Content management is vital to attract people and define city’s development plan! What is the content of your city?

Gabriela Viana, Sustainability

Digital sustainability

Digital world is eco-friendly, user friendly and cost saving.
It is the perfect starting basis to engage all residents. This platform is the perfect example to engage the city for a sustainable development.

Engage Citizen
Platform
Everyone is part of the solution.
Best set of tools for collaboration!

For citizens it is a social network.

For government agencies it is a CRM (Citizen Relationship Management).

For the city it is a collaboration platform.

It is a paradigm shift towards citizen behaviour.

Collaboration means a “more for less” approach and the certainty that whatever is build will succeed, simply because everyone is engaged!
