This project sought to develop a flexible digital waste service that integrates front-end resident user requests with back office delivery functions.
The team has now completed its private beta phase, which delivered functionality for finding collect dates, booking a bulky waste collection, reporting a missed collection and sharing service disruption notifications. Due to time and funding constraints, a number of services were not delivered however it is the intention of the project team to deliver the outstanding requirements as part of their second beta phase.
Looking forward, PlaceCube plans to incorporate business account and commerce features to create a minimal viable product for traded services such as Commercial Waste. This work would be based upon a discovery that has been conducted by Dorset Council.
The project team has submitted its application for continuous funding and their submission will be presented to a panel in late January 2023.
