Ness Digital Engineering Supports Kosice as the European City of Sport 2016
Kosice, Slovakia – 9 October, 2015 – Ness Digital Engineering has today announced that it has been chosen by the city of Kosice in Slovakia as its lead IT partner for Kosice’s role as the European City of Sport 2016. In a formal ceremony, Ness Digital Engineering signed the cooperation memorandum with the Kosice City Hall represented by Mayor Richard Raši and Vicemayor Renáta Lenártová.
In collaboration with the city of Kosice, Ness Digital Engineering will build a communication platform to provide citizens and visitors to Kosice with easy access to information about the sports facilities, events and news happening within the city. Ness Digital Engineering developers have already launched the website – www.emskosice.sk – which will serve as the main communication platform for the project. Selected information will also be published in a mobile app (for iOS and Android) and connected to social networks, both of which will link to content from the website.
The city’s districts, non-profit organizations, sport clubs and privately-owned sport facilities can use this platform to promote their events for free via www.emskosice.sk. Sports enthusiasts can watch free professional presentations of sport events and facilities. The site will include news devoted to sports in Kosice, including coverage of both professional and amateur sports teams. Kosice citizens and visitors will also enjoy the user and mobile-friendly features on this website.
Richard Raši, Mayor of the City of Košice, said, “We truly appreciate such an important contribution from Ness Digital Engineering in supporting the ‘Kosice – European City of Sport 2016’ project. We have signed the cooperation memorandum with the primary purpose to develop and maintain a communication platform for the public during and after the project. The information platform will become an effective communication tool, enhancing the development of sport activities and promoting a healthy lifestyle in our city.”
Zuzana Želinská, Associate Vice President, Ness Digital Engineering, said, “We offered help to the City Hall for this project immediately after Kosice was named the European City of Sport 2016. We’re proud we can, once again, support our city to make such a prestigious project a reality. Using our previous experience in mobile app development for Kosice as the ‘European Capital of Culture 2013’ and the mobile app ‘GO Kosice’, our developers will deliver an excellent product. In addition to providing the technical solution, we’ve significantly participated in the planning and implementation of the marketing concept as whole. We look forward to working with users and administrators on this important program.”
