The Russmedia Solutions Public Participation Platform offers direct contact with our readers: potholes, permanent puddles, noise nuisance, damaged public properties – a photograph plus GPS coordinates and comments can easily be posted and commented on by other readers.
Our editorial team confronts municipal administrations with the citizens’ concerns and helps to solve problems quickly.
In this way a new source of journalism for hyperlocal reporting is created, and every day our users experience how they can change things for the better in cooperation with their media outlet.
Municipal administrations and editors can be integrated into the platform with enhanced rights, enabling them to directly change the status of an item to “job done” without having to access a back-end.
The Public Participation Platform is based on open-source WordPress technology.
Native apps are available for Android and iOS.
Web version also exists in a fully functional HTML5 mobile version.
