Share

Sigma Systems today announced that it has won the Mayors Challenge Award for Aging Population at the Global Smart City Summit in Liverpool.

As the winner of the Aging Population Challenge Award, Sigma will partner with Liverpool City Council and deploy its Sigma Catalog on a trial basis in Liverpool through a formal partnership with the city council and its partners, to respond to the challenge of an ageing population.

Tim Spencer, President and CEO of Sigma, commented “We are honored and excited to win this prestigious award and we look forward to working with the city of Liverpool on solutions that will benefit the city’s aging population. Cities undergoing digital transformation are facing similar challenges as Communications Service Providers (CSPs) undergoing digital transformation. Municipalities are making good progress at connecting and automating services for citizens but as the number of data sources grows and the size and complexity of the data mushrooms, having a strategy for data management and data access around the services offered to citizens becomes increasingly important. The Liverpool City Council has recognized how Sigma Catalog can help them meet this challenge.”

The Global Smart City Summit - Real Solutions for Cities is taking place during 2018 International Business Festival in Liverpool from 12th – 28th of June. The Conference covers groundbreaking innovations that Smart Cities are implementing all over the world.
