Berlin/Aachen, April 2022 – Data can significantly help municipalities to improve the lives of their citizens. However, many administrations in Germany are still in the early stages of using data.

With its products, the GovTech company Polyteia GmbH offers suitable solutions for this challenge by automatically merging, cleansing and visualising data from different specialised procedures via interfaces. regio iT is now concluding a framework agreement with Polyteia in order to support its municipalities in the use of data across the board. The city of Solingen, one of regio iT’s customers, is already working successfully with Polyteia.
