Local authority Transmit messages
with an exceptional efficiency

Public Square helps local authorities to easily connect to their residents and leverage the power of community in improving the quality of city services. Is easy to use. Is a complete set of tools, available on all technology platforms and communication environments - online, iOS, Android, integrated with SMS messages and widely used social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Most importantly, is available fully personalized in a matter of days, not months.

Building a social space
Public Square works based on communities or neighborhoods, that are identified using geolocalization coordinates, to make sure that users are sharing the same interests and problems. We encourage users to connect with each other within their neighborhoods and build a sense of community together with the local agencies and City Hall.

Targeted communication
The communication targeting is made based on location. The local authority, city hall or any other type of institution, can signal a local interest issue to the residents of a neighborhood and only to them.

Public services
Once the community is connected to the city, new tools for public services can be activated within day. The local authority can ask the residents directly on priorities, on new services launch, on investments plans. It can also deliver all city public services in one official city network, where everyone is already connected.

 

NeighborsThe local
social network

Public Square was build as a smart city network. People are engaged in their community’s life, they stay connected with neighbors and local agencies. They are informed and, through technology, can get a taste of the strong  community spirit of the past in present day urban environments. They get empowered as never before in local governance. They set the local priorities. They can easily put their opinion forward on local issues, send suggestions, complaints, buy goods or services together or just keep a close watch on the security of their neighborhood.

Perfect control
The water supply stops because of local damage? Road repair works are scheduled in his neighborhood? The residents are alerted through push notifications, emails or SMS messages.

Stay informed
Public Square can work very well as an official city electronic publication. To a fraction of the costs of traditional media, the local authorities, agencies and utility companies can conveniently transmit news to their audiences.

Stay connected
Public Square is fundamentally a local social network. Beside improving local governance, Public Square allows people with similar interests to stay connected with each other and share warnings, news, events or even goods with their neighbors.
