The complex information system Webocrat, for e-Government and e-Democracy, provides complex solutions to increase the efficiency and transparency of the communication process between citizens and institutions. The experience of our developers and quality of our solutions have been proved in international R&D projects funded by EU e.g. IST-1999-20364 "Web Technologies Supporting Direct Participation in Democratic Processes (Webocracy)".

Suitable customers for our Webocrat system are institutions on different levels of public administration, state administration and self-government, also non-governmental and public relation organizations. A modified version of the system can be a solution also for the commercial domain e.g. its parts used as components for small and medium enterprises' information systems to improve the communication between customers or business and other partners.
