Incorporates new technologies into solution offerings.

NCS is enhancing services in education, healthcare, transport as well as other key sectors with the launch of its new initiative called SURF.

Solutions for an Urbanised Future or SURF integrates new technologies in solution offerings for government agencies and enterprises.

SURF will utilise new technologies to complement current capabilities and implementations to enhance the solution offerings to customers.

NCS will showcase a few solutions at the World Cities Summit 2012 as part of the SURF launch.

These solutions include eNGage tablet eBook, an energy management solution and OneCal, which is an integrated mobile calendar for each citizen.

"With close to 2,000 customers, our solutions enhance and impact the lives of over five million people in Singapore and the region," said Chia Wee Boon, chief executive officer, NCS. "SURF crystallises NCS' capabilities and solutions for a connected and urbanised future. It addresses the challenges and opportunities resulting from rapid urbanisation. Through SURF, we envision an urban landscape with endless possibilities."

New solutions

The eNGage tablet eBook is a publishing tool with social collaboration features that enables sharing of knowledge and ideas through tablets.

NCS has developed the energy management solution to help track energy use within a building in real-time, using sensing and communication technologies.

OneCal is an all-in-one calendar app, which taps on the NCS network with government organisations and other partners to consolidate government services, alerts, events and promotions into a mobile app.

NCS is also working with healthcare providers to design a solution that incorporates social networking and mobility to help facilitate self-management of health for the public and patients.

"Imagine a digital hospital which seamlessly manages the processes and flow of information, or a connected mobile platform that will transform the way students and teachers interact and learn," said Chia Wee Boon, chief executive officer, NCS. "NCS is committed to create value to provide an ICT-enabled vibrant, smart and sustainable urban city."
