Alpes de Haute Provence. Sisteronais Buech: Tourism, a digital terminal accessible to all

The digital touch terminal connects to the internet and allows you to access all information at any time. Jean-Marc Duprat, the mayor, explained that this includes tourist information, nearby hiking trails, and accommodation, shops as well as restaurants, shops, events, and parties. It was placed at the Place de la Fontaine which is the busiest street, so it serves as the permanent relay for the tourist office.

It is located right on the heritage discovery trail route. Chantal Matin (director of the Sisteron Buech intermunicipal tourism office) says that it is a place of passage and also a place for life. The digital point is our responsibility. However, we need to be notified by the producers, hosts or operators mentioned that any changes have occurred. Anne Trupheme, a departmental councilor, stressed the importance of keeping information current, especially regarding the opening hours for shops and restaurants. The terminal's information is not relevant unless it is current.

Although the initial information is centered around Laragne, users can also find things on Orpierre and Rosans, Serres, or Savournon. The tourist office covers all of the territory.

Oceane Tharel, who is in charge of the "Small Towns of Tomorrow" project in the community of municipalities, said that the equipment can be used 24 hours a days, 7 days a weeks and that it can be adapted to disabled people. The screen's height allows for activate at a lower height than a person using a wheelchair. It's also suitable for visually impaired people.

With the assistance of the State and the Department, the Sisteronais-Buech community (CCSB), funded the installation of these terminals.

Vice-president of CCSB Damien Duranceau, responsible for tourism. He confides that the four digital totems were created by Briancon company My Social Box, and purchased by the community of municipalities for EUR60,000. This system also protects the environment as the terminal is connected in 4G to the Internet network. It has a night-screen that uses less energy and low consumption.
