Public Administration has a tool to potentiate interoperability, named iAP (interoperability in Public Administration), that comprises essentially a set of 3 macro-services:
- Integration Platform – allows integration of information systems of member entities through service-oriented architecture, covering the technical and semantic components of interoperability;
- Public Administration Payment Platform – offers to AP information systems multiple payment methods for the different assistance channels, with integrated management, control and monitoring;
- Public Administration SMS Gateway – allows receiving and sending SMS between Public Administration and citizens, supporting transaction services (RELEITORAL and SMSREBOQUE) and informative services such as e-agenda notices for citizens.
