The idea

Getting appointments for public services in Germany takes a lot of time and requires to bring many documents personally to the civic offices (Bürgerämter). We want to drastically reduce the effort and time spent for these services like getting a new ID card by building an innovative web application that handles most of the steps and minimises the required effort.
