XABIA CONNECTA is a smartphone app created to make life easier for Javea residents.
New Technologies councillor Ximo Segarra, accompanied by Javea mayor Jose Chulvi and other councillors, recently presented the app ,which is suitable for iPhones and Android to, the local public.
Although free to users, it has cost just over €3,000. “This is a competitive price for the level of service it offers,” Segarra said.
Users will be able to send a photo, accompanied by a text, illustrating any urban defect they might notice. This will be dealt with by the appropriate town hall department which, as well as remedying the problem, will keep the person posted about the progress being made.
The app also offers the option of an instant alert in an emergency and receiving information about town hall services. It also gives access to municipal telephone numbers and commercial directories.
“Xabia Connecta goes a step further in our desire to be accessible, transparent and permanently at the service of the local population. We want to attend to citizens in real time and strengthen our relationship with them,” Jose Chulvi said.
Kika Mata, councillor responsible for Services pointed out that Xabia Connecta would be of great help to her own department.
“It will be our eyes on the street and help us take action whenever necessary. Basically it means we can give good service and answer residents’ needs efficiently,” Mata said.
