The newly launched SmartCities app also includes virtual reality (VR) 360 feature
In an interview with e27 on September 2015, Qlue stated their intention to expand its civil-based public service monitoring platform nationwide, after a successful implementation in the capital city of Jakarta.
Today the plan has finally come into fruition with the launch of SmartCities, a mobile app that helps citizens monitor and report public services.
Currently available for Android devices, SmartCities works in the same principle as Qlue where users can utilise social media-like functions –such as photo sharing and comments– to report their concerns and complaints on areas ranging from traffic, hygiene, and urban planning, among the few.
Through the app, the report will then be forwarded to government officials in related sector to be followed up. Users can even review and comment on the result.
The new app is ready to use by citizens and officials in 13 Indonesian cities: Jakarta, Bandung, Makassar, Denpasar, Manado, Surabaya, Bogor, Depok, Palembang, Bekasi, Yogyakarta, Pekanbaru, and Semarang.
The app is also completed with virtual reality (VR) 360 feature to provide better experience.
“We will keep on working with big cities in Indonesia to maximise smart city development … So that our common goal of building smart cities in the country can be achieved sooner,” said Qlue CEO Rama Raditya in a statement.
On the first quarter of 2016 alone, Qlue claimed to have received and processed at least 60,398 reports from five different categories, ranging from Violation, Garbage, Public Facility, Illegal Parking, and Damaged Road.
Qlue is partnering with the regional government of DKI Jakarta as part of Indonesia’s effort to implement SmartCity programme.
Apart from Jakarta, Bandung is the other Indonesian city who had shown commitment in developing SmartCity.
