Ever since it was born on June 2, 2014, Telangana, the youngest state of the Indian Republic, has been in the news for several reasons. Among others, the most-talked-about is how people in power harp on transparency in taking projects and schemes forward.

Quite in tandem with the Government, city-based LeadWinnerCorp (LWC), an organisation innovating in mGovernance and eGovernance solutions, has attracted attention by developing a mobile application and web cloud called Government Project Monitoring System (GPMS).

Simply put and as the name indicates, the app tracks estimates, works in progress and helps keep a hawk’s eye on every work, every step of the way. It aggregates and integrates data on real-time basis as line inspectors and engineers on the field key in their reports every day.

This is what LWC Director N. Vijay Kumar has to say about the product. It also helps in inception, execution and implementation of projects, brings about greater accountability and transparency, saves costs, and checks corruption.

What is more, GPMS has entered the finals of the mBillionth Awards to be held in New Delhi on August 4. These awards come from Digital Empowerment Foundation (DEF), a not-for-profit organisation working in digital inclusionacross the globe, particularly in the SAARC nations since 2002.

Empowering communities

LWC and GPMS have entered the finals in the smart settlements and urbanisation, mobility, productive work and sustainable living category. DEF’s objective is to empower information-starved communities by ushering in the digital age and post-industrial global society.

As many as 65 teams of finalists from all over the world will participate. From India, GPMS is the only finalist.

GPMS has also bagged a nomination for SKOCH Smart City Award!
