The possibilities are endless ParkWatchReport works anywhere there is a collection of people that want to send specific information to a central source. ParkWatchReport works for any agency or otherwise united group that wants to enlist the help of the public or other specified group in collected data of a specific nature
What are the benefits? Data Sort: The land manager has the ability to pull reports organized by any of the data headers (incident type, date, time of day, location, action taken, etc). Labor Management: Personnel can be deployed, fully equipped, to a specific GPS location. Advance surveying and wasted trips to the incident site are avoided. Planning: The data collected can guide decision making based on recorded, unbiased facts related to both issues and resolutions. Evaluate Results: The data collected after a decision is implemented offers insights into the intended and unintended results of that decision. Financial Planning: Data that has tracked the demand for repairs, additional personnel, the impact of special events, etc., is essential to the budgeting process. Track Volunteer Hours and contributions: Every park enjoys the contributions made by volunteers who serve as docents, assistant units, trail work parties, etc., but the concrete results of their work and the number hours contributed are hard to track. ParkWatch can do this.
More benefits Public Relations: Public participation improves the public’s perception of an agency's transparency and the honesty of the agency's decisions. Facility Planning: ParkWatchReport can be used to query the public for data that is useful in planning for the future expansion (or elimination) of particular types of facilities or activities. Improve litigation results: Offering a comprehensive history of collecting and responding to safety issues with prompt and effective action demonstrates a commitment to providing a safe environment for public recreation. Staying in touch: ParkWatchReport keeps a finger on the pulse of individuals and groups with specific agendas related to park policies, activities and assorted concerns. Cost Avoidance: By staying current on maintenance and safety issues the most costing of accidents can be avoided. Litigating just one serious accident will be more than the expense of ParkWatchReport in a lifetime. Versatility: By blending HaborWatchReport, CityWatchReport, StreetWatchReport with ParkWatch the power and reach of this tool is an expense that is easily justified.
