Defining a privacy respectful business model for digital engagement

Fostering Trust

Only a conscious commitment to empower customers can halt the current downward spiral of trust in digital engagement.

Smart Cities

The strategic challenge is to maximise the revenue opportunity for the local economy 

Fostering digital engagement in places keeps the data value local and maximises return on investment to the city.
