For the 16 million inhabitants of the Turkish metropolis of Istanbul, the German company KOBIL has developed a super app to make the metropolis more modern and more digital.

The app allows users to access all municipal services easily and securely and aims to simplify the daily lives of Istanbul’s citizens and improve communication with the city halls and all its municipal companies.

The new super app ‘Istanbul Senin’ was launched on November 18, 2021, at the Istanbul Convention Centre, attended by Istanbul Metropolitan Mayor Ekrem İmamoğlu and the KOBIL Group’s Founder and Chairman İsmet Koyun. Mayor Ekrem İmamoğlu, said in his opening speech: “Everyone who lives in this metropolis, regardless of age, ethnicity, religion, or lifestyle, has the right to help shape the city’s destiny. Istanbul will be a city where values rise because this city, rich in tradition, belongs to everyone.

“In this project, we have co-operated with one of the most important and renowned companies in the world, the German-based IT company KOBIL, for the installation, software and technical infrastructure.”

KOBIL Group’s Founder and Chairman, İsmet Koyun, said: “For us, the super app is a turnkey solution that offers everything in one to meet the needs of all consumers. It is the ‘super way’ for businesses to establish their own ecosystem and better realise their potential.

“We have an innovative technology that enables companies to establish their own ecosystem, increase their interactions, get to know their customers better, provide trusted and secure data storage, as well as the agility and flexibility for future innovations.

“It offers companies the ability to use multiple services through a single application in addition to the ease of installation without requiring deep expertise. Furthermore, partners can be integrated into the existing ecosystem very easily to expand their business.”

The super app consists of three phases: mobile payment, easy access to services and digital marketplaces.
