Online PR News – 08-February-2013 – lahore – UK Local Authorities can now do live searches for council records on smartphones and tablets following a new mobile app from GGP Systems. Designed to make it quicker and easier for councils to access records held in different local authority departments, the application provides access to records via a central address database and can be used on iPads, iPhones and Android devices. The mobile application follows the development of GGP’s web based gazetteer management system, GGP eNGz, which returns search results within two seconds of posting a query even when accessing a national dataset comprising of millions of complex address records.

This mobile application is set to revolutionise the way local authorities work by allowing much more work to be done remotely. Staff such as inspectors, engineers and planners need not return to the office to access the records they need and as more and more Council functions are centralised, a mobile worker can undertake a greater diversity of duties away from the office. For example, a Housing Officer making a house call to sort out benefits or allowances can also access records relating to Council Tax, property maintenance and social services. A Planning Officer inspecting a new build can look up Street Naming and Numbering records, report a faulty street light and even provide permission for tree work.
