Intechnology has won a place on the government’s Spark programme, set up to enable the widespread adoption of innovative and emerging technologies to transform UK public services.
Spark is an initiative from the government’s Crown Commercial Service, which supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services.
Intechnology joined Spark after implementing one of the UK’s first city-wide IoT networks in Coventry. It is working in partnership with the city’s council to pilot high-tech public services to boost air quality, pest control, waste management and street lighting.
Intechnology’s ‘smart city’ platform enables readings taken from a variety of city-wide IoT sensors to be analysed and processed for better insights around working practices and local decision-making.
Natalie Duffield, chief executive, InTechnology, said, “In Coventry, which is the UK’s next City of Culture, we are helping the council to develop new models of real-time civic engagement. We are delighted to join Spark and look forward to working with ambitious housing providers and local authorities to adopt and scale our proven technologies.”
