Envisioned to be available on multiple leading mobile platforms, project “CityApp” is intended to simplify citizens’ day-to-day interaction with the corporation on the mobile platform of their choice.

“This is an exciting time for India and the wider region. From transportation to healthcare, innovations in technology and citizen engagement are poised to transform our cities and improve lives,” said Vivek Puthucode, Vice President – Public Services, Asia Pacific Japan, SAP.

The software will provide BMC the right mix of technology solutions needed to automate and centralise end-to-end public service offerings in the city and achieve seamless integration of their citizen-facing services and back office functions.
