Press Release: Acresta announces Port Stephens Council has expanded its use of the Blink Mobility Platform

GARTNER SYMPOSIUM/ITxpo, GOLD COAST, 18 November 2014 – Acresta announced today at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2014 that Port Stephens Council has expanded its use of the Blink Mobility Platform. Acresta has developed a Water Catchment Inspection App for Port Stephens Council further leveraging the Blink Mobility Platform and in doing so has helped Port Stephens Council undertake water catchment inspection for Hunter Water in both Port Stephens and Dungog local government areas.

Staff are able to perform inspections out in the field, using data inputs from both Dungog and Port Stephens Councils and use features such as geo-tagging, signatures and camera. The inspectors can review the information in the field before automatically sending business responses to their customers. All data is captured internally before being extracted and sent to both Hunter Water and Dungog Council.

Juan Hernandez, Business Improvement Coordinator at Port Stephens Council said: “Our aim is to implement technologies that can streamline business processes to create efficiencies and cost savings. Acresta’s deployment of the Blink Mobility Platform helps us achieve those efficiencies through rapid mobilisation of our workforce.”

Fadi Geha, CEO of Acresta commented, “It is great to assist customers such as Port Stephens Council as they deploy the Blink Mobility Platform across internal processes that deliver improvements to both council and ratepayers.  We look forward to working closely with Port Stephens as they continue to expand their usage of the Blink Mobility Platform”.
