The City of London Corporation has chosen leading mobile marketing agency, Incentivated
, to create an app that will assist the Corporation in judging the prestigious “Clean City Awards Scheme” (CCAS). The app will be built in iOS and exclusively loaded onto staff iPads to assist with auditing participant companies.
The app is supported by a site and integrated with the scheme database, both also being built by Incentivated.
CCAS is designed to encourage sustainable waste management in offices and business locations, encouraging businesses to “reduce, reuse and recycle”, and generally improve the street environment in the City. Businesses who want to enter the award will submit their request through a website, triggering an inspection visit from the City of London.
Joe Kingston, CCAS and Recycling Manager, City of London Corporation: “We are delighted to be taking a more mobile approach to this year’s Clean City Awards Scheme. Being able to complete the site surveys, and include photos within the iPad app, our inspection process will be much more efficient. Incentivated are really helping us encourage more businesses to reduce, reuse and recycle through increased recognition via these prestigious awards.”
The app will use the current assessment questionnaire, currently a paper form on a clipboard, as its base, whilst allowing inspectors to take and store photos of office spaces within the app.
Once a survey is completed and saved, it can be sent immediately over 3G or Wi-Fi to the City of London’s award database. In areas without a mobile connection, the questionnaire will be saved locally, until it can be transferred over the air, or side-loaded into the central database.
