Datacom goes live with new app for local government

Datacom’s Antenno app for local government community engagement has gone live, offering councils the ability to report issues, submit ideas and send feedback.

The app is also designed for communities to notify councils immediately if they discover graffiti, potholes, dumped rubbish or other issues.

Datacom says the app is free for people in the community to use and is already in use by a number of councils in Australia and New Zealand.

Shire of Manjimup in Australia, and South Waikato District Council and Tāupo District Council in New Zealand, are using the new issue reporting now and Marlborough District Council and Kāpiti Coast District Council will go live soon.

“We are excited to have achieved two-way communication for councils through the Antenno app, as we believe this to be a first in the local government space,” said Mark Matijevic, director, Local Government at Datacom.

“Now that we’ve built this, we’re expecting to see greater engagement from the community as reporting issues through Antenno is very quick and easy.”

Manjimup Shire president Paul Omodei said: “We are expecting that the reporting function will be a popular and useful tool for residents to easily advise us of issues, and will help the Shire to deliver well maintained assets and efficient services.”

RECOVERING FROM RANSOMWARE

Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks access to your files and systems until you pay a ransom.

The first example of ransomware happened on September 5, 2013, when Cryptolocker was unleashed.

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.
