Brazilian IT and telecoms R&D firm CPqD has presented a prototype of a mobile application aimed to facilitate citizens' access to public administration information, news source Teletime reported.
The solution was presented during a conference to discuss innovation and computing in public administration, held in Rio de Janeiro. According to Teletime, CPqD intends to meet the demand of state and local governments for mobile applications that serve to communicate with citizens and to streamline internal processes.
The app was developed to be integrated with governments' IT systems to allow, for example, for a citizen to consult on administrative processes or to register a child in a public school.
Obtaining information on car traffic, health systems and tourist information, as well as a channel for crime allegations and other accusations, are other possible uses for the solution, according to CPqD.
