Netcompany develops MyWestminster
Digital transformation company, Netcompany (www.netcompany.com) announces the successful development and delivery of the MyWestminster digital card as part of Westminster City Council’s latest Smart City for All initiative. Currently on the path of digital transformation, the council seeks to establish itself as a truly Smart City, looking to digitize how residents access core services and cultural activities via its City Save initiative.
Sitting within the City of Westminster online portal, this new digital card enables residents to access public services and cultural activities simply and conveniently. Now residents no longer have to wait for a physical access card to be printed and posted to them, they simply sign into their account via their smartphone and add their digital membership card to their Apple Wallet or Google Pay in a matter of minutes.
“Netcompany has a strong track record in delivering technologies that are helping to meet critical societal needs,” says Sarah Williams, Head of Customer Experience and Digital, Westminster City Council. “Already we have witnessed an outstanding uptake of the MyWestminster digital card and services because we have made the process so simple and convenient to access. This enables us to meet our goal of putting the needs and interests of our residents at the heart of how our services are developed.”
“Speed, security, convenience, and ease of use were critical elements in this project. Initiatives like this are redefining the concept of public sector services and simultaneously solving the resource and efficiency challenges that most local authorities face today,” adds Richard Davis, UK Country Manager Partner, Netcompany. “With MyWestminster, Westminster City Council has shown how it is looking to take transformation to the next level for its constituents.”
Currently on the path of digital transformation, Westminster City Council seeks to establish itself as a truly Smart City supporting Westminster’s ambition to be carbon-free by 2040, as part of its Greener City initiative.
