Recently we have seen an active desire of various services and organizations to automate their activities with the popular tablet. More recently it was commented about the implementation of the iPad in schools and some airlines, but now it’s time to pay attention to harsh English scavengers.
British service organization Bury intends to improve the efficiency of street scavengers due to the transition from paper to digital media. The project will use iPad for laying the route of the sweepers, tracking idle crews and logging unserved or new areas of garbage collection.
Here is what Glenn Stuart says, the Head of Waste Management:
The new system will save staff from paper work, the result of which may be lost or corrupted, because garbage collection – a dirty job. The iPad will be pre-filled with information that allows displaying all the houses and streets on screen.
Glenn also points out that after the introduction of Tablet taxpayers get a better and efficient service.
The new project has a lot of opponents who criticize Bury council for excessive and inefficient expenditures. All the criticism boils down to what ordinary notebook and pencil are cheaper tablet. Slightly strange position, because the £9000 (about $14615) for the purchase of 22 iPad doesn’t not look serious to the organization. The efficiency of the service during the transition to automated controls certainly will grow.
