“Digitisation is truly a necessity.”
Peter Bouma, advisor information systems at the municipality of Coevorden, in the province of Drenthe.
Our central function within the Dutch society requires us to keep up with the developments of the digital world. It is truly a necessity. Because of these changes, we are able to respond faster to questions from our customers. It also makes our municipality more transparent.
The municipality of Coevorden wants to be amongst the innovators. Participating in the eIDAS project allows us to do so. Additionally, our municipality is located close to the German border. We currently receive requests for services by European citizens and business by e-mail and phone. We expect that European companies are most likely going to request services from us in the future.
