Our endeavor, while shaping a Smart City concept, is to bring its inhabitants benefits such as higher life comfort, safety, service availability and lower living costs, while maintaining their privacy. At the same time we insist that all systems have to be very well controlled and transparently managed to become a useful and non-threatening part of their everyday life. eCityTwin digitally transforms the everyday life processes with data driven city management. With our solution, we put emphasis on user-friendly, customizable software, easy operation and changes of operating modes. Another feature appreciated by our customers is turning the “numbers” into valuable information (creating forecasts, issuing warnings, producing reports, keeping the plans on track). And finally, when it comes to expenses, the initial investment is compensated by reduction in energy costs of at least 10% with a payback of less than 2 years. After all, we honor our motto: energy savings are precious!
