SmartGuide® delivers e-government services in France that enhance the citizen experience and engagement.

MONTREAL (Quebec), January 15, 2014

Alphinat is pleased to announce that France’s SGMAP organisation, the leading agency of the government of France for State Modernisation, will continue to leverage SmartGuide and SmartGuide PaaS Edition to deliver citizen-centric e-government services. The contract has been renewed for three years with an option for a fourth year. This new contract puts Alphinat in a direct relationship with the SGMAP and allows the client to acquire additional software licenses, annual maintenance and associated professional services.

About the SGMAP

The SGMAP is the agency of the government of France that is responsible for State Modernisation. The SGMAP organisation was set up in response to the new roadmap for government modernisation. It was designed in such a manner as to serve three ambitious objectives: contributing to maintaining the French social model, restoring public finances and making the economy competitive.

The SGMAP brings together all the departments responsible for the modernisation policy, which were previously dispersed, and introduces a new consistency to government modernisation efforts.

For this purpose, the SGMAP brings together:

  • the Interministerial Directorate for Government Modernisation, formerly the Directorate General for State Modernisation (DIMAP);
  • the Interministerial Directorate for Information and Communications Systems (DISIC);
  • the task force responsible for making public data accessible (Etalab).

About Alphinat

At Alphinat, we are driven by the passion to make application development easy for everyone. It always struck us as odd that the people with the vision of how a finished application should look and behave would only be involved at the start of the process. After all, what better way to ensure a favourable outcome than to provide those closest to an application’s end-users with a vested interest in its success throughout its development?

That’s why we bring you new ways to empower the right people at the right time in the application development process. At the same time, we’re constantly working to reduce the need to code in order to make application development and maintenance simpler and less error-prone.

So whether you choose to develop your applications with the help of our low-code platform SmartGuide®, kickstart your project using one of our pre-built apps or engage us or one of our partners to do the work for you, we’re here to help you deploy better applications in record time. Visit http://www.alphinat.com for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.
