Southampton City Council is developing smartcard kiosks as part of its efforts to meeting the Government's 2005 deadline for getting services online.

The pathfinder council is working with software specialist BEA Systems to develop an innovative three-year Smartpath project, which officials say will improve public services to citizens.

The first phase of the project deals with housing repairs. Tenants can report problems and make appointments for contractors to carry out repairs from public access kiosks and PCs situated around the city. A smartcard will authenticate the tenant and ensure that transactions are secure.
