User-friendly fault reporting

Are poor-quality fault reports hampering your service delivery?

Inaccurate reports make it difficult for maintenance teams to efficiently repair faults and issues, such as broken streetlights, potholes and flytipping. 

Logger, an add-on to iShare in the Cloud (iSiC), improves report accuracy by enabling residents to use a map to pinpoint the location of a fault or issue.

Logger can include data from iSiC in the fault reporting process and simplify the sharing of contextual information with back office systems.

Logger’s map layers help users find locations, control where they can click and provide
additional information for maintenance teams

Map Layer

OS Premium base mapping helps your users identify the right location. You can configure aerial photography or other base maps in Logger too.

Target Layer

The target layer can be used to ensure that your users can only click where you want them to, e.g. users are constrained to reporting potholes on highways. If no target layers are used, users can report issues anywhere.


Reporting a faulty streetlight

In this example, Logger helps a user correctly identify a streetlight’s location by allowing them to choose from specific assets.

In this example, users are provided with a web map as an alternative channel for reporting fly-tipping. Users can precisely locate the site, and the application can query ownership and adoption layers to determine responsibility. It can even be configured to allocate a job to the area’s clean-up team.
