On Wednesday 22 July, we hled a joint webinar with the team from Love Clean Streets, showing both the Love Clean Streets applications (free mobile app and host system) and the link with Confirm. Nigel Tyrell, Head of Environment at the London Borough of Lewisham joined us and gave a crystal clear insight into cost savings and efficiency improvements realised through the use of “Love Lewisham”. Not only that, but he explained how very, very different Lewisham now is compared to just 5 or 10 years ago…why not have a look yourself, next time you are in the area? And Lewisham are even more ambitious – they aspire to be a suburb where families choose to live, not just the professional generation of “Friends” fans, but the young couples who start and raise a family.
Confirm is unique in offering a pre-packaged link with Love Clean Streets.
This is a natural “combination”, as most of the issues logged with this simple “point, photo and send” free smart-phone app will go to Confirm user departments, where the Council are using Confirm for Street Scene Maintenance. With links through to the Operational Services teams, the speed with which Environmental Issues can be resolved is quite stunning and a huge amount of cost is taken out of Service provision.
Have a look at the BBC News article from this morning, featuring Nigel Tyrell from the London Borough of Lewisham, pioneer Council for this innovation: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-14172714
