QUIDGEST’S PRODUCTS WHICH SUPPORT THIS SDG

URBAN PLANNING MANAGEMENT

Having a holistic view of the territory is Urban Planning Management’s main objective. With it, city council administrators can strategically plan and seamlessly manage in real-time the territory via a portal that centralizes all the information about property management and assets under the chamber’s jurisdiction and enables the management of processes and associated documentation.

It is also worth noting the system comprises a geographical database with every registration attached, such as land licenses, roads, and municipal infrastructures.

In developing economies, Urban Planning Management implementation might translate into a greater amount of fiscal revenues and a reduced amount of tax evasion for local governments and the empowerment of the people who can have full control over their resources.

This solution is also helping to fulfill the following Goals:

WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT TOOL

Access to running water, basic sanitation, and urban waste is the foundation stone of a developed society. Poor infrastructure can lead to both spread of diseases and the waste of resources – both hurdles can cost vast amounts of money to solve.

The Water Resources Management Tool was created with these issues in mind. It enables holistic management of the water supply and waste disposal systems and answers to all the operational and commercial details of this sector.  Thanks to artificial intelligence (AI), the solution is also an enabler to finding water leaks, infiltrations in the sewage network, and abusive water consumption.

Moreover, the integrated solution will help you save resources with its AI-propelled predictive maintenance feature, which can anticipate pipe malfunctions.

This solution is also helping to fulfill the following Goals:

Potential Impact of this Product on the 15th SDG

15.1 By 2020, ensure the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of terrestrial and inland freshwater ecosystems and their services, in particular forests, wetlands, mountains and drylands, in line with obligations under international agreements.

PUBLIC BUDGETING AND EXPENDITURE TRANSPARENCY

According to the OECD, in 2019, less than half of people (45%) trusted their governments. The disbelief in administrations compromises citizens and business fabric’s willingness to respond to public policies and contribute to a sustainable economic recovery.

Although there is no quick recipe that will dramatically boost this percentage, there is an important characteristic that can help regain public trust: increasing the transparency of a government’s operation, especially regarding the public money’s budgeting and expenditure.

That is Quidgest’s proposal with the Public Budgeting and Expenditure Transparency system. Besides budgeting and expenditure, the tool includes financial controls, accounting, financial reporting, internal and external auditing, and actions taken on audited accounts. Public trust is not something to overlook. It is the foundation upon which public institutions’ legitimacy is built and crucial for maintaining social cohesion and attracting investors.

This solution is also helping to fulfill the following Goals:

PUBLIC FINANCE SHARED SERVICES

Given the multiple variables at stake, having a holistic view of a country’s revenue/tax collection and expenditures can be challenging. However, not having a vision of the balance can be a more demanding challenge for decision-makers. Quidgest’s approach on this subject is complex but simple to understand: centralize all the information in a single platform by providing common ground corporate services.

Individual departments usually carried out something that is now done a single time, reducing unnecessary duplication of effort, harmonizing policies, and consolidating relevant data under a single umbrella platform. Transparency, international credibility, and better resource management are some of the benefits of Quidgest’s Public Finance Shared Services solution.
