“Use the experiences of others and don’t reinvent the wheel”
Antje Stickel, communication advisor and webmaster of the Midden-Delfland municipality
Antje Stickel has coordinated the eIDAS implementation for the Midden-Delfland Municipality. Antje is communication advisor and webmaster and acted as the link between as the Midden-Delfland Municipality, the SIMgroup, and Connectis. We primarily identified the login needs from European companies and civilians in practical terms, Antje tells us. That is why we chose the option to make a request for a birth certificate for instance. This is convenient for former citizens that moved abroad. Also, you can look at your personal data from anywhere in Europe, file complaints and send digital documents in a secure way. Traveling international events can apply for a sign permit here while they are still somewhere in Europe.
The Midden-Delfland Municipality aims to be well accessible for everyone who may need us, in any way they want. This can be a visit to our townhouse, by phone and, of course, online. If you can lower more barriers by giving online access to your services from other European countries, we most certainly won’t hesitate to do so. The process of connecting to eIDAS was really smooth and easy, she sequences. The experience and expertise of the SIMgroup and Connectis were a great help. If you are a municipality that yet has to start the eIDAS connection process, I would advise you to be pragmatic above all. Take advantage of the experiences of others and avoid trying to invent the wheel”
