City of Siegburg: Finalist for the Axians Infoma Innovation Prize with electronic payment processes
The city of Siegburg has been working with Infoma newsystem financial accounting since 2008, and has now been honored as a finalist for the 2016 Axians Infoma Innovation Prize.
Their project, “Administration-wide use of electronic payment processes,” impressed Dr. Jens Weiß from the Harz University of Applied Sciences. These were some of his reasons: A project for citizen-focused innovation that serves as a true role model and pilot proposition. In Siegburg, parking tickets can be paid directly online via PayPal or bank transfer by scanning the QR code printed on the ticket. When it comes to eGovernment and electronic payment processes, projects like this help the town administration take a pioneering role in the region.
