The City of Fort Wayne was looking to gather information to help them make their change to their Recycling process more efficient. They asked Atos Origin to create a web application "The City of Fort Wayne Recycle Cart Registration" that would allow the citizens to enter data and then compare it against the City/County data to produce an all-inclusive report of addresses and requested cart size. With this the City is able to route the delivery of the new carts to save time and money. As well as provided an opportunity for the City to use media to get the citizens more involved with the daily workings of the City government.
A working Windows Phone 7 mobile app was also developed but not released to the public.
"We're actively experimenting with development on popular mobile platforms such as Android, Apple iOS and the newly released WinP7. Mobile apps offer a lot of promise for making government services accessible to the citizens in a quick, convenient and efficient way," stated Atos.
The web app captured 10,000 cart requests from Fort Wayne citizens within the first month of its release.
