Our smart city consulting approach for municipalities

Our Smart City and Smart Region consulting service is aimed at municipal and regional stakeholders who are eager to proactively and participatively approach digital transformation. Digitization, as a cross-cutting theme, is the number one task for addressing the complex challenges of urban and regional development. However, that is just the beginning.

We understand the challenges faced by municipalities. We have a deep understanding of how municipalities work and focus precisely on that. We stand on equal footing with you and know what is important in Smart City consulting.

bee smart city stands out for its systematic approach to developing an integrated, holistic and actionable strategy for your smart city, community or region. A participatory approach tailored to your specific needs allows us to elevate digital urban or regional development to a new level, based on our strategy paper - supported by digital processes and tools.

In this process, all key stakeholders, as well as citizens and other stakeholders, are involved and professionally supported by us. We include municipal leaders, council members and political parties in our process to pave the way for approval in committee meetings.
