05 Aug REDTone launches CitiAct app for public to engage with councils
Integrated telecommunications solutions provider Redtone International Bhd launched its first Internet of Things (IoT) application called CitiAct, a new mobile application for the public to engage with the local councils.
With the new app, Redtone said on Tuesday the public could report cases and track issues sent to the councils to respond effectively.
Managing director Datuk Wei Chuan Beng said this new managed value added services would be the real future of REDtone’s growth.
“We believe that the new app would make up at least 5% to the group’s revenue in the next three years,” said Wei at the launch of CitiAct and its portal called CitiSense.
While the app can be downloaded for free by all users, Redtone is offering a complimentary one month trial from Tuesday onwards for councils nationwide to try the app.
“This not only encourages people to create a better city, but for councils to handle complaints efficiently.
“Most of all, it saves time and resources,” he added.
The group is engaging with a couple of councils and aims to reach out to 151 councils nationwide during the promotion period.
For the next one month, Redtone hopes to have about 100,000 users. It also hopes to reach out to other Asean countries.
