To help infrastructure managers see what residents think of their department, the company adds a “level of service” module to its suite of maintenance-management software. Using customer comments about potholes, litter, graffiti, or drainage, the program develops a performance rating that can be compared to desired standards. The program also determines how much effort and money will be needed to close the gap between service goals and actual service levels. CitiTech Systems Inc. Booth 2139. www.cititech.com.
