QScend Technologies: Citizen Service Request Management Simplified for Cities and Counties
“QAlert is web-based software, an easy-to-use product that enhances citizen request services. QAlert offer multiple channels of engagement, such as social media, call centers, and web forms, that encourage maximum communication between constituents and their municipalities,” asserts Keith LeBeau, president of QScend Technologies.
The QAlert CRM system is a feature-rich offering that simplifies the service request process on two fronts; for the city officials and workers and for citizens. “Citizens can describe an issue, add an image, and hit submit using their city’s app on their smartphones. Requests are geocoded based on the device location and routed to city staff for review and resolution,” says LeBeau. Staff can view current requests, search for previous submissions to review a complete history of each issue’s resolution process, review and email knowledge base articles, and report on all the data in QAlert to improve processes, organize work schedules, and prepare better budgets.
In addition, managers can monitor staff workload at multiple levels, keeping staff accountable and service quality high.

They can assign requests to city workers who can then inspect their issues and proceed to fix them within a few days. When work is delayed, managers know through QAlert’s escalation process, which allows them to make sure no issue goes unresolved. As requests are addressed, staff can customize update messages to residents via email, phone, and text, through social media, and through the citizen web portal. Through a city’s mobile interface, or online portal,residents can monitor progress as their issues are resolved.
