Staffordshire County Council and district councils are celebrating the success of the myStaffs app, as registrations have reached over 20,000.
The app was created by the county council in partnership with the district and borough councils of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Lichfield, Cannock Chase, Tamworth, Stafford, Staffordshire Moorlands, Staffordshire South and East Staffordshire.
The app, which is available for free on Google Play and the App Store, was released two years ago, and since then residents have been using the technology to access all of the council services in one place, rather than having to trawl through Staffordshire and district council pages to find out about local services.
Richard Lancaster, Public Sector Partnership Manager, said: “The public generally don’t differentiate between borough/district and county services. They don’t want to contact the county council only to be told the service they are enquiring about is provided by the district or borough and now they don’t have to.”
Registrations and usage of the app are expected to rise throughout the summer holidays with features and in-app services appealing to parents looking for local children’s entertainment and term dates, holiday makers checking for roadworks and delays, and other daily services while on the go.
Mr Lancaster added: “The myStaffs App combines all public-sector services into one, easy to access application for your smart phone or tablet.”
