GGP Systems is helping to ensure that the police, ambulance and fire services do not get lost when looking for new addresses.
March 21, 2013 -- New software from UK Geographic Information Systems (GIS) company is set to speed up and simplify the naming and numbering of new streets and recently-built properties. Councils have a legal obligation to issue official addresses and the creation and maintenance of address data is essential for emergency service response, delivery of post and packages and record keeping for legal and statutory purposes. Strict guidelines must be adhered to ensuring names and numbers are appropriate, logical and consistent and newly created or updated information needs to be shared with a host of third party organisations.
“The failure to maintain accurate street naming and numbering records and processes isn’t just about getting your post delivered to the right house; it can be a matter of life and death,” commented Tim Maxwell, Managing Director of GGP Systems. “Out of date maps have been blamed in several cases by Ambulance services failing to respond on time to an emergency call and accurate records are vital for the effective planning and delivery of essential Council services.”
GGP SNN is a self-contained case management tool that facilitates the administration of the many contacts, correspondence, legal documents and tasks that make up the complex Street Naming and Numbering function of Local Government. GGP SNN has been developed in conjunction with several Local Authority Street Naming and Numbering Officers and is designed to address day to day requirements for document management, process automation and task generation.
GGP SNN offers multiple workflows that can be customised to suit individual requirements and can generate emails and letters from templates automatically populated with case data. GGP SNN maintains a list of all on-going cases and automatically presents a case status overview with reminders of essential and time critical tasks.
“GGP SNN will help improve the efficiency of the Street Naming and Numbering Process,” continued Maxwell. “Workflows, templates and reminders can all be used to speed up the process and improve communication between interested parties. The integrated financial module can be used to generate and track invoices and important documents are scanned and held digitally thus improving security and even saving money on storage.”
