UAE’s first waste management apps launched
Abu Dhabi, September 20, 2011
Averda, a leading environmental solutions provider in the region, said it has launched a first-of-its-kind, high-tech waste management application for the UAE.
The iaverda is the country’s first iPad and iPhone application that allows the community to take action in the cleaning of their environment, , said a company statement.
The application features an attractive, easy-to-use interface that gives residents within Averda’s coverage areas an interactive, direct link to the corporation, it stated.
It allows the submission of queries, feedback and requests for services and information.All that the residents need to do is send either an image or text message through the application, and Averda will deal with the report, providing status updates and completion notifications.
The iaverda will be updated regularly to offer more services and options to customers, it added.
The initial launch of the application is for the Abu Dhabi communities that Averda provides services for, but it will soon be available across all emirates of the UAE, the company said.
Abu Dhabi residents will assist Averda in keeping their residential area clean, by utilizing popular technology to activate Averda’s quick response waste management team whenever action is needed, it added.
“We utilize the latest technologies in our waste management processes, so it only seemed natural that we branch out and explore similar high-tech options for keeping the communities we are active in involved in maintaining cleanliness,” said Malek Sukkar, CEO of Averda.
“The launch of our iaverda application for the iPhone and iPad will allow communities to quickly address any waste issue in their area, by reporting the incident directly to us."
"Our teams will then mobilise to clean up the waste, helping to keep Abu Dhabi streets green," he added.
It is being launched in line with Averda’s commitment to upholding the Plan Abu Dhabi 2030 vision of the emirate’s government to enhance the environment, transport and heritage of the UAE’s capital city and more far-flung areas such as Al Ain and Al Gharbia.
“Through this free application, we are encouraging community engagement and environmental awareness. We strongly believe that we all have a part to play in keeping our cities clean, which is why we called it ‘iaverda’ – ‘i’ stands for every one of us as residents in the city" Sukkar added.-TradeArabia News Service
