Willoughby City Council has selected Australian Platform-as-a Service provider, BlinkMobile Interactive, to implement phase one of its mobilisation strategy.
The Blink Mobility Platform provides enterprises with a deployment and management structure which can manage data sources and through one platform, provide multiple services to all devices.
With the mobilisation strategy, the council intends to enable ratepayers to access its website and e-services across a range of multiple mobile devices.
Willoughby Mayor, Pat Reilly, said the council picked the Blink Mobility Platform for its ability to repurpose content already on the Web and reconfigure it for any mobile device, satisfying one of its most important criteria – providing its ratepayers easy access to council services and information.
“BlinkMobile’s investment in the continued innovation of its technology was also important. Moving forward, we’ll be able to update the council’s online information in one place ensuring no extra work is incurred by our staff,” he said.
BlinkMobile’s Sydney-based partner, EcoView Mobile, a technology and consulting services company, introduced Willoughby Council to BlinkMobile, and will work closely with the council in rolling out the technology.
