Municipality of Póvoa de Varzim has a new Portal focused on the future
A new portal for the municipality of Póvoa de Varzim, Portugal, was launched, 13 years after its first official version was inaugurated. The project developed by Dipcode, the Eurotux Group’s web development company, is focused on the future, delivering greater capacity for addressing the challenges of tomorrow, while responding more efficiently to the present needs of municipalities.
This update for Póvoa de Varzim’s website, whose hosting is guaranteed by Eurotux, follows 3.5 million visitors and more than 20.4 million page views, according to data from Google Analytics. These numbers reflect the Portal’s importance in the daily lives of residents, which now have a “new digital city at their disposal”, as announced by the City Hall.
The Porta’s new version displays contents more efficiently, guaranteeing greater interaction and dynamic behaviour, as well as a speed that is better suited to modern times. The changes are perceptible to visitors, who now have access to a more complete and intuitive experience, resorting to some of the latest technological advances in web development. Maintaining the rigor of displayed contents, the design fosters empathy with the users, with innovative strategic options that are aligned with the municipality’s motto – “Innovate now, guarantee the future”.
Appropriately adapted for all devices, from computers to tablets and smartphones, the new municipal portal is organized into seven fundamental areas – municipal news, the eAgenda with ongoing events in Póvoa de Varzim, allowing you to subscribe to receive the main highlights by email; the eServices channel, where you can request information, appointments, present complaints, make suggestions, submit and consult projects and licences, submit applications, and have access to municipal call centres or public services; the Territory channel, with social, cultural, and economic contents, namely regarding the Environment, Social Cohesion, Sports, Education, Tourism, and the Investmais program; the Municipal channel, with information on the Presidency, the City Hall, and the Municipal Assembly, as well as the Civil Parish Juntas, Urbanism, Municipal Works, and Equipment; the Multimedia channel with video-galleries, and photo-galleries of the main moments in the life of the municipality; and lastly, the area with Contacts and institutional addresses. The Municipal Portal also includes the “Visit Póvoa de Varzim” channel, with information intended for tourists regarding what they can “Learn”, “Visit”, where to “Stay”, what to “Do”, and what to “Eat”, providing maps and pamphlets. The access to these contents is provided by design solutions that are aligned with the best practices in usability, as is customary with every project developed by Dipcode.
