The Smart Locator application was chosen for Best Cloud-based Innovation 2015.
Smart Locator is a cloud-based software that is used in emergency response centres in several European countries. Besides the Slovenian 112, it is also used in Finland, Switzerland, Iceland and Bavaria. In case of emergency, it locates the caller in distress, who calls the emergency number 112. Neither the emergency response centre nor user need to preinstall any software.
Smart Locator has already won the awards “Outstanding Emergency Services Innovation 2014” (112 EENA) and the “Golden Award for Best Innovations in Slovenia 2014” (GZS).
At this year’s EuroCloud Slovenia competition, each entry was assessed by a highly qualified jury, comprising members who are recognized professionals in their own field. The criteria on which applications were evaluated are innovativeness, societal benefits, the application’s potential for add-ons, new services and its compliance with legislation, security standards and interoperability. The winners of the Slovenian competition will go forward to the final – European EuroCloud Award 2015.
