Based in Jakarta, Indonesia, the app works as a social media platform for the country’s capital where the local issues and other complaints are posted with geo-tag, benefitting not just the users but also government officials to help in resolving the issues.
The app has been proving to be improving the government’s performance by 60 percent and elevating the trust to over 47 percent.
With a user range of over 1.8 million on a yearly basis, this US based app provides access to government information, services and support, without the extensive, time-consuming procedure of calling the helpline number of 311.
The application is also used by a handful of government agencies helping them standardize a user’s responses which helps them investigate the user’s issues thereby making the resolution process easier.
