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.

DATA PROTECTION SHARED SERVICES

Data protection systems should be much more than complying with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

They should also be about boosting an organization’s productivity, increasing the public’s trust on the systems used by empowering them with their privacy rights and data management, and digitizing obsolete physical processes.

Data Protection Shared Services provide these features and also reinforce the security via intuitive software that can be adapted to different needs and DPO’s objectives.

SOCIAL HOUSING SHARED SERVICES MANAGEMENT

Social Housing is a complex acting area. On the one hand, you must be able to answer the urgent requests of families in need swiftly, but on the other hand, social workers face an overwhelming amount of paperwork that only slows down the process. They should be assisted with a state-of-the-art tool.

The Social Housing Shared Services Management integrates different features that efficiently help manage families – from the moment they request social housing to rental managing – and contracts. It is also a powerful digital transformation vehicle, leaving the obsolete paperwork behind while also simplifying and boosting financial management’s transparency and precision.

All in all, it is a powerful tool for both social workers, who will have their productivity boosted and the people in need of housing, who are granted a place to live with greater speed.

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.

VIRUS VIGILANCE AND CONTROL DATA (VIRVI)

The Covid-19 pandemic brought today’s society a different perspective of how vulnerable Humanity is to unknown diseases. However, it also proved how the use of technology can boost our understanding of the problem and, on top of that, how you can protect your people with it. VirVi is the prime example of this, a solution created during the pandemic to help on the decision-making process, grant better information access and help caring facilities with the overwhelming questionnaires.

Through it, healthcare and governmental leaders are granted access to a global view of an entire region or country by monitoring the virus surveillance cycle, making sure they have data being constantly updated. It also provides a web portal to solve the easily collapsible helplines. Important to note that although this solution was designed and developed during the Covid-19 pandemic, it can be applied to other viruses.

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.

HUMAN CAPITAL MANAGEMENT SHARED SERVICES

Assuring the human resources management team focuses on strategic activities while also providing better service to the public and ensuring every employee has the tools to effortlessly manage their activity is Human Capital Management Shared Services’ goal. As Harvard Business School’s Professor Michael Porter would say, “the essence of strategy is choosing what not to do”, and Human Resource professionals should not spend the majority of their time on day-to-day tasks.

Quidgest’s tool reduces unnecessary duplication of effort, harmonizes policies, and consolidates relevant data under a single umbrella platform. It includes the necessary features to enable a holistic view of human resources management and optimized shared services centers.
