NO-CONTACT TRANSACTIONS -- Baguio Mayor Benjamin Magalong signed an agreement with the Information Technology Business Solutions Corp. on the city’s move towards digital governance and no-contact transactions with the use of multipurpose smart phone application and web portal that makes government transactions as easy as a touch of a finger. -- Gaby Keith

Baguio City is now officially into digital governance and no-contact transactions.

Mayor Benjamin B. Magalong signed an agreement with the Information Technology Business Solutions Corporation (ITBS) for a multipurpose smart phone application and web portal that makes government transactions as easy as a touch of a finger.

The Pampanga-based ITBS was represented by its president, John Paul M. Miranda.

Dubbed “Smart Baguio City in my Pocket” (Smart City), the app offers quick-access solutions to local government information and transactions and emergency and calamity notifications.

It rationalizes management of basic city services, enhances monitoring of peace and order, and facilitates delivery of a wide array of government services to residents.

While the Covid-19 still hovers, Smart City provides a medical self-assessment and reporting tool; quick access to emergency services; and a contact-tracing tool, all of which are designed to prevent spread of the virus once carriers are identified.

It keeps a record of residents for purposes of better delivery of government, medical, peacekeeping, and police services.

It gives residents real-time interaction with the local government promoting participatory governance.

Smart City will be launched after concerned city offices and the barangays have been trained on the management of the app.
