About Spot Reporters
Spot Reporters enables mobile users to become a local government's eyes and ears by "deputizing" citizens to report potholes, graffiti, and other non-emergency issues using their mobile phone.
We work with city governments to customize Spot Reporters to fit their specific needs. By configuring the system with their service types and custom brand, we help our clients provide a one-of-a-kind experience for their users.
Spot Reporters was designed to integrate seamlessly with existing CRM, EAM, and GIS systems. By extending the convenience and accessibility of existing services, we enable governments to "do more with less".
Our proven technology has been deployed by major cities and is used by tens of thousands of mobile users.
