Field based actionable information that is ready to run on a cloud-based solution- A Key Element for Smart Governance

Smart governance describes the way government works to engage their citizens. People want to tell the government about issues and to help make their city a better place. Smartphones are ubiquitous and bring convenience, connectivity and instant communication to almost every citizen. Mobile Alert is an app that can be used to  bridge this gap and connect the government to their citizens.

Citizen Mobile AlertThe key to making this work is convenience. We like the convenience and flexibility of online services; we need this to be easy. If it is easy, citizens can be great data collectors and can generate a relative location with high accuracy. This gives the vital information needed for smart governance.

Mobile Alert is a cloud-based service that provides crowd-sourced feedback and notifies local or state government agencies with detailed information in less than a minute about the feedback from citizens. It was originally developed as a simple and free cloud-based app for citizens using iPhone®, Windows and Android smartphones to get people help keep an eye on public assets.

Anyone can use Mobile Alert for free to anonymously send photo and location information about the changes they would like to see in their communities to the proper authorities.

This straightforward app makes incident reporting as easy as posting a photo to social media.mobile_alert flow
