The distinction was awarded by the World’s Smart City Organization in the e-GOV area of smart cities
TOMI received the first place in the Global Smart Cities Contest, from the World’s Smart City Organization (WSCO), in the category of E-Gov. The winning project was the implementation of public services in TOMI, created in partnership with the Agency for Administrative Modernization (AMA). With this functionality in TOMI, it is possible to access services present in the central administration, such as the citizens’ bureau, making them more accessible and comfortable for those who need it.
This is the fourth distinction, within a year, regarding its contribution to the Smart Cities. After winning the Smart 50 Awards (Kansas, USA); the Smart Cities UK Awards (UK) and InovaCidade (São Paulo, Brazil), the Portuguese company has now won this new international award.
José Agostinho, CEO of TOMI WORLD, believes that «this prize, in this category, has enormous relevance. The E-Gov is one of the most important verticals of smart cities, where technology can speed communication between the state and citizens, improving the quality of life and access to public services. »
The Global Smart Cities Contest recognizes the best projects that actively participate in community development. In 2018, it focused on five categories: Mobility, Energy, IoT, Integrated Operations Center Platforms and E-Gov. The jury that chose the best projects covers the top verticals in the smart cities area, with Sarolta Besenyei, European Commission Expert, as the president of the jury.
WSCO is the only global organization that brings together governments, universities, universities, companies, and international organizations at the highest level and with the same interests – the development of the world’s largest community of smart cities.
