Like all great ideas, Snap Send Solve was developed from a simple thought - “wouldn’t it be great if I could report this broken swing in the park through an app”.
The result has been a robust, user focused, mobile app that takes all the thinking out of reporting to local authorities. Using publicly available data, Snap Send Solve was entered into a Victorian Government ‘App My State’ competition in 2010 where it was well received.
The premise was simple: the app works out where you are, who manages incidents within that particular area and then using a users own email address sends through relevant information such as location, incident type and any related image to the correct contact.
The best part? Users didn’t have to wait in phone queues, pass on any additional personal information, if they didn’t wish, and the same app could be used anywhere in Australia - no need to download an app every time you travel across the country.
After being available to download for a number of years and receiving an increasing amount of feedback from users, Snap Send Solve was redeveloped so that it could similarly work in conjunction with Water, Gas and Electricity companies, Asset Management bodies and a number of other organisations who want to be a part of Australia’s most used incident reporting app.
Today, Snap Send Solve allows users to report incidents to every single council in Australia - yes every single council - as well as a growing list of new organisations.
Snap Send Solve is designed, developed and supported by Award winning mobile app developers Outware Mobile.
The same wholly Australian owned and based team that builds the apps that help you find jobs, check the scores and manage your health are behind the app that sends your reports. This team is trusted by some of Australia’s largest organisations to secure personal information - so you can be sure that your own data and reports are handled in the same way.
Snap Send Solve has been established as a subsidiary of Outware Mobile and is managed by a full time team of snap-happy staff.
From a simple thought to grand plans, Snap Send Solve is already Australia’s most used mobile incident reporting app and continues to empower constituents by giving them a solution to report on their terms - no queues, no forms and no need to know in advance who to contact.
The features we offer both constituents and authorities continues to expand as we look to work with users across both divides to develop a service that makes managing reports as easy as sending them.
Snap Send Solve is determined to continue to grow and work with more authorities across Australia and beyond.
The Goal? One app to report any number of incidents to any number of authorities, anywhere in Australia... even a broken swing in a park.
The App is designed and built to empower users to report incidents to local authorities for reporting and repair (Services) .
