Climate change is an often-debated topic by national and local governments around the world. While many people agree that the environment should be a priority when it comes to making decisions, it can be difficult to come to an agreement and then to put those agreements into practice.
At Centric, we are helping municipalities in the Netherlands do just that. Our product is being created based on how municipalities will have to adapt to the upcoming Environment & Climate Change Law.
The platform is for governmental workers and is meant to be a place where they can find everything they need to do their jobs. From digital centralization of folders containing every action that would otherwise be done on paper (such as fees, the ability to ask for and receive advice from colleagues, managing permits, performing inspections, storing documents, etc.), to inspections with detailed checklists that can be performed by specialists at any location, even without an internet connection.
We also use national services that connect to the national request platform for the new law, to provide official addresses and other details about citizens and companies to provide an admin module where employees can configure everything according to their needs.
Our goal is to create a user-friendly application that makes it easier for municipality workers to do their jobs – avoiding some of the red tape that can make life more difficult.
