This week, Chicago Mayor Emanuel announced the launch of the city’s new, modernized 311 system, making it even easier for Chicago residents to access city services with an updated system that’s more accessible, transparent and user-friendly.
Chicago’s new 311 system is built on the Salesforce Platform and will:
- Improve resident experience by making it easier to find information, submit requests and track status of requests.
- Give residents the ability to find information or submit requests through multiple media channels, including City of Chicago’s first ever mobile app.
- Make it easier to identify opportunities for improvement with continuous monitoring and performance measurements.
- Optimize service delivery to decrease time to complete a service request.
- Enable departments to better manage and track their work.
According to Mayor Emanuel, “The new, modernized 311 is a smarter system, it is a stronger system, and it is a system that works in real-time that will transform the relationship between residents and City service. We built this new system with Chicagoans, for Chicagoans to make their lives easier and strengthen neighborhood services as the fundamental building blocks of strong, healthy communities.”
