Mobile311 featured in article for Southern City Magazine
Eddie Staley and Charles Wright of Mobile311, LLC were recently interviewed by the North Carolina League of Municipalities. Their publication "Southern City"published an article on mobile technology in local government and looked to Mobile311 for their expertise.
Eddie was quoted as saying, "I'm seeing governments take advantage of this (mobile) technology for use internally on laptops and handheld devices. We're seeing it reach across departments for use in areas like solid waste, stormwater and law enforcement. It's about being able to get that data back. The data has value. For example, you can see a problem was requested at this time. So how long did it take to get it resolved? Then you can either send out or reduce the number of crews."

Mobile311 highlighted in the January issue of MSW Management Magazine
MSW Management, the journal for municipal solid waste professionals featured a story which highlights Cary, NC software company Mobile311, LLC. Mobile311 and client Asheboro, NC are studied in the article for successfully cutting collection costs that often account for 50-70% of a solid waste operation budget.
“The city (of Asheboro) started the Mobile311 program in 2008 as a way to reduce expenses, especially fuel expenses in the sanitation division,” reads the MSW article. “Now, however, city employees armed with a simple icon on a touchscreen mobile device can mark the GIS location of every bulk waste item, pile of rubble, or any waste location in need of a visit by a collection truck… The resultant savings in fuel, vehicle maintenance and worker overtime have been significant.”
