A job management app for local councils

The Problem

We all know that Local Authorities are faced with ever-increasing demands for greater transparency, improved efficiency and reduced costs. In addition they usually have complex requirements with a number of subcontractors involved in the work. Contract management is very important, however once a subcontractor is approved and on the system, it’s difficult to check the work they do and measure the efficiency they promised in their contract.

How Okappy helped Local Councils:

  • Okappy helps local councils monitor their subcontractors
  • Different departments can enter jobs quickly and easily
  • Jobs can be allocated internally to different subcontractors or by an external contractor
  • The status of any job is updated in real time, so councils can easily track the work being done
  • Automatically generated reports allow the council to check the performance of each subcontractor and ensure they are delivering as expected
  • Information can be made available on the council’s own website to allow residents to send in jobs and review the status
  • Saves administration costs and manpower

The result!

Using Okappy saves time, cost and administration for busy local authorities. It provides them with greater transparency with the hundreds or even thousands of different subcontractors they use, and passes that same transparency on to the end customer. All in all it means the council can work more effectively with their subcontractors, ensuring work is carried out efficiently and on time.
