Using SaaS technology for urban service management

Using SaaS technology for urban service management

Technology makes our daily lives much easier, that’s a fact. And if not, just think of how many tasks it frees us from. At home, for example, we already have smart hoovers or light bulbs that we can switch on and off with just a voice command. But what about in the streets of our municipality? What does technology bring to the management of urban services?

What is SaaS technology about?

Of course, the maintenance and management of urban infrastructures has evolved by leaps and bounds, and it is precisely in this context that SaaS technology has an indisputable role to play.

But first things first, because if you have never heard of this concept, you may not understand what a SaaS is and what its scope is.

A SaaS (Software as a Service) is, as its name suggests, software as a service, i.e. a software delivery model located in the cloud, in which the provider develops and maintains this technological solution, providing automatic updates and offering this service to its customers over the Internet, through a pay-per-use system.

The advantage of this model? Undoubtedly, the economic savings, as customers subscribed to this service can enjoy up-to-date, fast and accurate software without resorting to local programmes that undeniably increase the cost bill.

We must not forget that this is a technology that has undergone a major transformation. In the early 2000s, the first SaaS solutions were very inflexible, so inflexible that they were only designed to solve a single need or problem. Fortunately, more than 20 years later, this technological reality is truly mouldable and today offers its benefits in different areas and sectors such as human resources, commerce, marketing, sales and, of course, the management of infrastructures and urban services.

What are the advantages of its application in the maintenance of a city?

Now that you know what SaaS technology is and what it consists of, it is time to delve into the benefits that its application offers in the maintenance of municipalities and cities.

Thanks to it, public administrations, engineering, consulting and maintenance companies can respond to the Smart City philosophy, favouring an increase in the efficiency of the resources that make up the urban fabric, substantially improving its management and offering reliable and open data, which results not only in the reduction of recurring costs, but also in the increase in the quality of life of citizens.
