Benefit from our continual development roadmap in consultation with clients and users.
WasteWorks has been developed in collaboration with Bromley Council and tested against a different operating system at Peterborough City Council.
Here’s what Jonathan Richards, Technical Support Team Manager at Bromley had to say about WasteWorks:
“Bromley Council have been working in partnership with SocietyWorks for our online reporting for the street scene since 2012, so when we were looking at developing our online offering for Waste Services reporting, approaching SocietyWorks for their expertise was a natural fit.
A discovery session with one of SocietyWorks’ designers allowed us to scope out our specifications and to discuss how we could structure and overcome challenges, as well as bring in SocietyWorks’ experience in focussing on the citizen’s journey through the process and resulted in a clickable demo.
SocietyWorks provide a dedicated project manager and developer for each project, and with regular catch-up sessions and communication through Basecamp, all stakeholders are able to keep up-to-speed and feed in where’s needed. The SocietyWorks team are flexible and responsive to feedback and tweaking, so you really feel the product evolve.
Bromley have also introduced a second phase into the project looking at bringing our Green Garden Waste subscription service online and adding the additional challenges of integrating with the backend financial system, offering both debit card and direct debit payment options and subscription reminders.”
Jason Dalby, ICT Project Manager at Peterborough City Council added:
“It’s always a pleasure working with SocietyWorks. They have a robust understanding of both the citizen and the local authority’s needs and take a very collaborative approach to product development. This includes open discussions on their product roadmap with exciting enhancements being released regularly.”
