Antenno is a free SmartPhone app that that helps Councils target information specifically at the right target audience.  Being interactive it allows for feedback and can be used to keep the community updated on issues such as:

  • Refuse Collection and Recycling updates
  • Community services such as parks, leisure centres, events and road closures.
  • Utility disruptions
  • Building consent
  • Public Safety issues.
  • School closures or changes to schedules
  • Health & Safety Warnings
  • Public Consultations

South Waikato District Council (SWDC) was always looking for new communication tools – to broaden its suite of methods it used to inform the community, to reach those people who might not be on Facebook.

Antenno helps people stay informed and get involved at a level that suits them, about things they care about, so the community in the South Waikato District can be more aware, and more engaged.

It sidesteps the need for people to search for council information or watch social media feeds, by sending notifications to people only when something comes up that is relevant to them. The app is free for people to install and use and is available on both Apple and Android smartphones.

As one resident of SWDC says “Really awesome idea and love having instant notifications of what is going on around the area”
