Creating innovative public services to make life simpler for the community and business and streamline their dealings with public administration. This is the mission of the consortium CSI-Piemonte (Consorzio per il Sistema Informativo), a leading ITC company which for years has been among the 20 largest Italian companies in the ICT sector, serving all segments of the public sector – from health care to commerce & industry, from cultural heritage to administrative systems, from local services to training and employment.
Established in 1977 at the initiative of the Region of Piedmont, the University of Turin and the Polytechnic of Turin, CSI-Piemonte is an authoritative name in the industry, recognised at the national and international levels, as demonstrated by the ever growing number of partners that over the years have joined the consortium, including, besides the founding partners, the City of Turin, all the provinces of Piedmont, local councils and associations, health care offices, hospitals and government agencies.
CSI-Piemonte focuses its attention closely on the demand for innovation expressed by the community and business, transforming their needs into practical, user-friendly services. For the consortium, ITC and internet access is a fundamental right, which is why it is committed to delivering new forms of engagement for digital citizens and e-democracy.
The consortium also plays an important role as an organisational consultant, helping institutions optimise their internal processes, save time and money, and satisfy more fully the demands of the community.
Thanks to its expertise, public administrations can achieve economies of scale and rely on the top-class skills of professional consultants. The value added by the consortium is also exported beyond regional borders through joint projects promoted in Italy and abroad, promoting the reuse and transfer of best practices to other regions and local administrations.
Finally, CSI-Piemonte works tirelessly to support ICT companies in Piedmont, especially small and medium enterprises, by involving local businesses in contracts awarded by public institutions, assisting them in their bids for national and international calls for tenders, and encouraging them to specialise and co-operate in joint projects.
