Crowdsourcing provides a valuable supplemental source of real-time intelligence on issues, directly from the field. Hexagon’s Mobile Alert engages members of the public to quickly capture and report details of situations as they find them using a simple and immediate smartphone app. The reports can include the location of incidents, descriptions, timestamps, and images.
The solution could not be more simple to deploy. Hexagon provides a total cloud-hosted solution, including the hosting environment, processing logic, and downloadable application. Citizens simply download the app for iPhone via iTunes or for Android smartphones via Google Play.
