MaintStar is a Finalist in Smart City Expo “Call for Apps” Contest
MaintStar was chosen as a finalist last month at the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona. MaintStar participated at the Expo as a member of the Microsoft CityNext exhibit. The Congress held a “Call for Apps” contest looking for innovative technology solutions that can help cities and other municipalities work smarter in various areas, while increasing levels of customer service & satisfaction.
On behalf of the Evaluating Committee of the Call for Apps contest, it is a great pleasure for us to announce that your proposal, Citizen Engagement through “Mobile Citizen” has been selected as a finalist at the SCEWC 2015.
MaintStar appreciates the recognition and continues to roll out our “Mobile Citizen” app to smart cities looking to engage and connect with their citizens.
Innovation to inspire and implement @ Smart City Expo in Barcelona
MaintStar, as a partner within the Microsoft CityNext initiative, will be participating and exhibiting at the world leading smart city event. This expo brings together global, national, and regional urban representatives, thought leaders, academic institutions, research centers and top corporations that have the kind of decision-making power that drives smart cities and empower its citizens.
Driving citizen engagement through innovative mobile application technology has been a large part of MaintStar’s latest municipal initiatives. Whether assisting the city or county with notification of various non-emergency service opportunities or scheduling an appointment with a local city building inspector, MaintStar helps citizens in connecting better, faster and with more alacrity than ever before. The momentum around this event mirrors the enthusiasm seen globally in the smart city space, with over 12,000 expected visitors and nearly 300 exhibitors.
MaintStar will be exhibiting within the Microsoft CityNext pavilion and speaking at a number of venues, presenting our newest technologies and sharing real municipal experiences that are in use today. We will also address how we deliver resources, guidance and best practices to help cities understand what is available to them today and how technology can help them address the many issues they face.
