StarTraq has announced that Brighton and Hove City Council has chosen to invest in its Environmental Enforcement ‘Software as a Service’ solution, StarTraq DOME.
Like so many other councils in the UK, Brighton and Hove has the challenge and cost of keeping its streets and public spaces clean and tidy. Investing more money into cleaning up litter is not addressing the cause of the problem, and unfortunately, education alone does not always change people’s behaviour. Enforcement is often required to help combat littering in the form of Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs).
Brighton and Hove has invested in StarTraq’s DOME (Dynamic Offence Management and Enforcement) solution. DOME will enable the council’s in-house enforcement team to use the latest mobile technology to capture and upload environmental offences via a smartphone application. In addition, FPNs can be issued and printed using Bluetooth printers. This will enable enforcement officers to issue more FPNs and ultimately achieve greater compliance.
The solution is due to go live by summer 2021 and will be configured to process thirteen different environmental offence types.
StarTraq DOME is the complete ‘Software as a Service’ solution for environmental enforcement. It is made up of two components. The first is a cloud-based back-office solution that is built on an adaptable graphical workflow that can be customised and updated to meet a council’s business processes. The second is a smartphone ticketing application built on the latest web-app technology to capture, upload and print FPN’s for any environmental violation type.
