As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the representatives of the City of Split and the Croatian Telecom Group signed an agreement recently for the project of creating the Split Smart City Platform which will represent the digital transformation of the city’s services and enable citizens fast and easy two-way communication with the city’s services via both mobile and web applications.

Through the new smart digital system, citizens will have access to all useful data in one place: an insight into the agreed services that citizens or companies have with city companies, information on bills, debts and the ability to pay bills, the ability to report problems and complaints, kindergarten registration, information about events, as well as submitting requests and receiving documents issued by the City of Split. The system will also be able to integrate with other systems already in use in the city such as the Split Parking app and NextBike.

“We’re creating a unique digital platform that will be the basis for the further modernisation and digitalisation of the city’s services. We’ve managed to do a lot so far, and now we’re embarking on a new digital step forward that will make things even more accessible and more helpful for our residents. Through better and more transparent communication, simplicity and efficiency, we’re once again aiming for what is most important to us – the satisfaction of the people who live in Split,” said the Mayor of Split, Andro Krstulovic Opara.

The Split Smart City Platform project will last for three years and is divided into three phases in which Croatian Telecom will provide the Cloud infrastructure, and Combis will deal with the development and delivery of the application solution itself. The value of the contract stands at 3.5 million kuna, and the application should be available to citizens by the end of the year.

“Today, there can be no progress without digitalisation. The intention of Croatian Telecom and Combis is to connect society as successfully as possible with the opportunities provided by new technologies, and solutions for smart cities are a key step in building a digital society. We’re proud that through this project, and with the City of Split, we will be able to raise the quality of life of the city’s citizens as well as the efficiency of the city’s companies. The concept of smart cities has long come to life in the world with excellent results, and in Croatia it’s still in its infancy. As such, I’d congratulate Split for making such a step forward,” said Marijana Bacic, the Vice President for Corporate Sales and ICT Services at Croatian Telecom.
