Municipo Introduction Municipo could save American
taxpayers more than $1bn over
the next decade Town/city councils spend around $15 per call handled maintaining non-urgent call centres;
They also spend millions of dollars per year
settling needless compensation claims;
Rich nations spend billions of $ per year supporting this status quo. Municipo's platform allows authorities to reduce costs by:
- Moving non-urgent problem reporting to high-quality
- Using the web, and people power, to get an early view
of potential litigation liabilities before they become expensive. Municipo's platform provides the following features:
- An interactive map to report problems and fixes;
- Social-networking features to support community interaction;
- Group functions, so citizens and organisations can organise
their community work via the web;
- Interactive idea-bank, allowing authorities to 'crowdsource'
improvements to the community/city. Municipo will charge an annual licence
fee to client authorities.
There are more than 4,000 cities worldwide with a population greater than 100,000 inhabitants.
In the US & EU alone there are more
than 1,000 potential clients to start with. This business model forecasts revenues
in excess of $8,000,000 in the fifth year.
Bootstrapping & outsourcing will mean
much of this revenue = profit. The Team Luke Bozier (the one on the left!) is a former
head of New Media for Tony Blair PM as
