Smart City concept is a broad term. It covers wide range of services and activities – waste management, traffic, public transportation, smart lightening, environment and more.
TSG has decided to focus on the most important element in the city – its residents.
TSG is the exclusive authorized distributer and partner of Tel Aviv Municipality ‘Digi-Tel’ project.
Tel Aviv was distinguished as the ‘Smartest City 2014’ in the annual Smart City Expo in Barcelona thanks to its Digi-Tel project. Digi-City, based on Digi-Tel, combines the latest IT technology with advanced operational procedures to transform municipalities to intelligently active cities that are one-step ahead in resident’s engagement.
Digi- City is a comprehensive program that involves three major factors of the city quality of life on a Win-Win-Win model: Residents, Municipality and Merchants.
The program combines technology aspects as well as cultural, organizational, knowledge management and municipality procedures aspects. Digi-City technology aspect is about personalized web and mobile communication platform which provides residents with individually tailored, location-specific, life situation-based information and services. The platform facilitates a direct and holistic connection between the city and its residents, from alerting residents to neighbourhood road works to sending targeted reminders for school registration and offering discounts which facilitate access to the many cultural events taking place in the city. The information is delivered by push via different channels, including Push notifications, personal emails, personal text messages and a personal resident account.
The Digi-City program improves resident quality of life, increases senses of belonging and upgrades the municipality daily operations.
TSG, its Indian partner, Foxberry Technologies, Pvt. Ltd, and with the help of Tel Aviv Municipality – have implemented the first Digi-City program in Thane, Maharashtra India – Digi-Thane.
In March 2017 the “Digi-Tel” program won a bid to become the model for “DigiThane”, a new digital engagement platform for the city of Thane, in the state of Maharashtra, India.
Thane with the help of TSG, Foxberry technologies and Tel Aviv Municipality, is following the same platform as DigiTel to provide residents the same city services and exciting new features to bring residents and city officials closer together and more acquainted with the city.
Thane has some 2 million residents, and technical, operational and cultural adaptation were made in order to successfully complete the project.
