Project Title: QLUE
Duration: Since 2016
Location: Indonesia & Global
Mobile app to empower citizens globally with a voice to help improve the cities they live in. Game changer to how governments and private enterprises receive feedback (compliments, suggestions and complaints) that are location-based with photo or video support. Once feedback are received, they monitor it via a customized geospatial dashboard and respond accordingly using a traffic light monitoring concept. QLUE help governments build closer relationships with the citizens paired with accountability, analytics, data, efficiency, empathy, performance indicators, transparency and sustainability. Since our launch in 2016, we have accumulated over 500,000 users who submit thousands of reports each day. These reports have led to changes and improvements in their cities for example, in the one and a half years our app has been available, operational costs for the government of Jakarta has decreased by 35%, flood spots have reduced from 2000 to just 88, sanitation problems has reduced by 18%, and a survey for satisfaction on governments performance has increased by 27%. Enforcement agencies are now part of our solution as we operate from 2 major countries and moving to the rest of APAC.
