Owners of lost items will appreciate it. So far, lost property offices have recorded found property in two independent systems. Through the merger of fundamt.gv.at and fundinfo.at one uniform, central lost property system for the whole of Austria is created.
Find lost items Austria-wide
The new lost property system comprises around 900 towns and communities with a total of 5.4 million inhabitants. This is an important step towards national coverage in order to be able to offer citizens an Austrian-wide central contact point for lost items.
„If all communities register their found property in the central lost property database, you have the chance to find your lost property, even if you don’t know exactly where the object has been lost or found“, emphasizes Peter Grassnigg of RUBICON IT GmbH, operator of fundamt.gv.at, the importance of a nationwide solution.
