Atma Tools for Disaster Response and
Atma tools are very simple to use, deploy rapidly, are optimized for low-bandwidth environments, and are low-cost and well supported. Non-official information is vetted prior to posting, making it far more trustworthy than other public networks, such as Facebook.
AtmaGo is an award-winning platform for people helping people. It enables neighborhood-based peer-to-peer communication and runs on mobile web and Android. AtmaGo provides personalized feeds based on a user’s location and topic interests.
Our Community Impact Platform allows organizations that work on disaster preparedness and response to help residents organize events to mitigate, respond to, and recover from disaster. It helps disaster organizations and community networks coordinate their work, reach new members, and increase participation.
The Community Impact Platform helps organizations track the impact they are having to improve disaster response and recovery through collection of photos, stories and quantifiable goals. Over 160 communities have been created on AtmaGo to generate change, from organizing preparedness events to rebuilding after disaster.
Complaint Handling Mechanism
We created an innovative Complaint Handling System, in use among public agencies in Indonesia, that allows citizens to easily report complaints and aspirations regarding public services, and includes a custom dashboard for the responding government agency to manage and resolve complaints.
The entire end-to-end technology infrastructure is lightweight and user-friendly, so citizens can easily, through a few clicks, report a problem, and so staff within the Government agency can easily track incoming complaints, assign responsible staff, and resolve and respond to the issue.
