1. College students are the largest demographic using smartphones.
According to a PEW Research Center study, smartphone ownership is highest among young adults, especially those with high income and education level. Some 85% of Americans ages 18-29 are smartphone owners, as are 78% of college graduates and 84% of those living in households with an annual income of $75,000 or more per year. This research shows that it’s becoming clear very quickly that young people use smartphones to get access to the information they care about. Therefore, cities should meet them where they are (on their phones!) if they want to engage them.
2. SeeClickFix allows the college town and college to redirect issues.SeeClickFix has increasingly worked with areas that are multi-jurisdictional (a great example is Pinellas County and St. Petersburg, FL). In many towns, portions of the land or roads are owned by other entities. For example, in college towns, a portion of the area will belong to the college itself. This also means that those issues that occur within the college boundaries often belong to the college. To the resident who wants to report an issue, however, they don’t want to know who the issue belongs to — they just want it fixed! SeeClickFix was built to allows cities and colleges to redirect issues between each other. This way cities aren't burdened with campus issues, but have a way to help track and report those problems to the right person.
3. Smart GIS mapping shows residents exactly where the boundaries are.SeeClickFix’s smart GIS mapping technology makes it easy for college towns and colleges to define their boundaries. This makes for a better user experience for the resident, as well as more efficient workflow for both the college town and the college.
4. Temporary or transient populations can cause routine/seasons of issues.
For college towns with transient populations, there are often routine, seasonal issues like street closures for moving in during the fall or illegal dumping when students move out in the spring. This variance across seasons requires a customizable platform. SeeClickFix allows college towns to easily edit and change service requests types throughout the year.
