ANNAPOLIS, MD, April 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - RealTerm Energy launches MyTown, a new smart city app and asset management platform, made specifically for small and medium-sized municipalities, that is set to revolutionize the way local governments and citizens communicate. MyTown, which is now available as a free download for both Apple and Android devices, improves citizens' connections with their communities while staff and elected officials become better informed and more responsive to citizen feedback.
MyTown provides citizens with access to a wide range of public notices and events, customizable tabs such as garbage and recycling calendars, along with school and bus alerts, updates regarding road closures, parking, water-use restrictions, sidewalk construction, hospital wait-times and a great deal more. MyTown can provide citizens with over 30 different types of information sources. The app also enables users to report problems, like a pothole, a streetlight outage, a parking concern and even facilitates the anonymous disclosure of sensitive information to law enforcement or school administration officials via the HotLine tool. The app has already proven to be of great value to over 30 cities of various sizes and to 3.6 million citizens across North America.
MyTown's Smart Maps tile unlocks the potential of real-time location intelligence and creates the foundation for next-generation geo-spatial systems and IoT connectivity all on a platform that is built to military grade security protocols. Smart Maps tracks and displays information for the municipality in real-time by linking multiple IoT devices on to one platform enabling optimized asset management for assets such as buses, garbage trucks, smart streetlights and snow removal equipment. It also enables the tracking of important sensors and equipment such as air quality, water quality, noise, video and numerous others. Smart Maps is powered by Luciad, part of Hexagon Geospatial, utilized by organizations such as NATO, SAP Hana and Airbus Defense and Space.
"We are very excited to be launching MyTown. Our goal is to provide municipalities, regardless of their size, with access to advanced software and technologies at an extremely affordable price. Now, more than ever, MyTown is needed to improve communication between citizens and city staff and is required to support rapid and informed decision-making at city halls everywhere. We are certain that this application and asset management platform will quickly improve communities with minimal effort," explains Sean Neely, CEO of RealTerm Energy.
