As part of the “Open procedure for the acquisition and customization of a software for the digital check of the Turin markets (n.18_005)” awarded by public deed on 09/11/2018, PA Evolution received the task of analysis and development of a platform that would facilitate the management of the presence of vendors at markets and fairs. The aim was to allow a digital check for the allocation of space to authorization holders and so-called “spuntisti” (i.e. “checkers”).
The app had to optimize the processing times (both for data relating to presences/absences on the markets and for the handling of the rankings), the digitalization of payments and the authorization consultation.
To achieve this goals, PA Evolution has developed the Merc@TO web application, now owned by CSI-Piemonte (Consortium for the Information System) and the City of Turin. The app is usable from mobile devices supplied by the municipal police of Turin.
The app was developed using the VBG platform which is a platform developed by PA Evolution on behalf of Regione Umbria, which grants it free of charge to public administrations.
The VBG platform is composed of two components:
The domains in which the VBG platform is used are:
PA Evolution was appointed to deploy the VBG platform, to analyse and implement the Merc@TO application and to activate it on the sixty markets of the city of Turin which take place daily from Monday to Saturday.
The activity has included training days for CSI Piemonte, an initial support on the markets.
PA Evolution also manages the Help Desk activities and the solution maintenance.
