I have mentioned this project in other contexts:
but dealing with the local (small regional) Council has convinced me that I should put a proposal to the Council to convert their incredibly tedious paper application process into an electronic one - the prospect of having to repeat the previously endured bureaucratic nightmare another 11 times is unimaginable. It also occurs to me that SAFE could be used to secure the operation and at the same time generate SC for me. So far my idea includes:
- Converting paper applications to conventional web-based processes (this would need some sort of digital signing for the applicants)
- The Council leasing hardware from me that would be used solely for running SAFE Networking and Vaults (with the option of bringing the management of the project in-house after a period of time)
- Storing electronic applications (and scanned paper ones) on the SAFE network (this would need securing the access to the software apps and the actual submitted applications for multiple Council employees)
- Generating SCs for me via the transactions that occur and providing a mechanism for me to bring more people into SAFE project
I will put a submission to Council that they should hire me as a consultant to get this project implemented. If the project is successfully implemented then I have a blueprint for further submissions to other organisations - public and private.
What do people think? Suggestions? Ideas?
