Citizen Feedback ​​​​​​​

(WorldData CF V9a)

Introduction

​​​​​​​Citizen Feedback is a component of a smart city system. This is a tool that helps users report general inadequacies as well as those concerning the infrastructure and services provided to the citizens, thereby assisting the authorities in handling issues effectively and improving the living and working environment for the people.

The software supports citizens, tourists and businesses to comprehensively report the issues upon detecting inadequacies by sending information with photos and videos attached to the Center for monitoring and management of smart cities (IOC).

Through user’s interaction and location tracking being enabled on their smartphone, all information is transmitted and stored in the IOC. When there is an issue that needs to be reported, citizens can use the software to send information, images and videos to the center. Immediately, all information including images/videos, description, location and sender's phone number will be received, classified by the IOC before being transferred to competent authorities for handling.

The whole process of handling reports is public, through which citizens can monitor, interact and evaluate the report handling of each agency. The process of report receiving, handling as well as the result are posted online so that citizens can monitor the whole process until the final result becomes available. Citizens can easily report the incidents and damages to the area’s infrastructure including transport infrastructure, water supply and drainage, lighting, greenery, electricity, telecommunications, public transport, social safety and order, and quality of tourism services, etc. They can also report the acts of delaying, causing troubles or not complying with regulations by officials and public servants during public administrative procedures. This is a social sensor channel through the reception of reports from citizens.

In addition, this solution is also considered an effective tool to contribute to cost savings, as well as promote the application of information technology to support cadres and urban management bureaus in capturing and handling in time the acts violations, urban incidents, ensuring 24/7 incident response. Managing authorities and the leaders can monitor the activities of social order violations and handling in the area in a synchronized manner, while citizens can look up information related to public services, as well as monitor and evaluate the results of the handling activities and public administration quality.

The software promises to be a tool that supports leaders and agencies in managing, monitoring and operating their work; an information channel for citizens and businesses to easily send their reports to the authorities and agencies quickly; a solution to reduce and limit the situation of dossier being misplaced, avoiding harassment and negative actions that can arise related to the report handling process. The system, when operated stably, will promote the effectiveness, reduce costs for the entire political system, save time and costs for the citizens and businesses, and so on.
