Zen Citi has announced the launch of its new data free mobile app called Smash’d. Smash’d allows users to collect and capture information at an accident scene and seamlessly complete the official Accident Report Form.
Enabled with snap and scan features, Smash’d allows users to capture pictures of the accident scene, scan involved vehicle and driver’s license disk/s and share all the necessary information via the app. On completion, Smash’d will generate and email the completed AR Form, which users can take to the nearest police station for signature and submission.
“If we want governmental services to improve, we need to be the catalyst to the change we want for our future South Africa and assist our government in understanding how we want problems solved,” says Dineshan Chetty, managing director at Zen Citi.
“We designed Smash’d as a solution to outdated reporting which is time, resource and cost consuming. The app provides a quick and guided experience to ensure accuracy and efficiency in reporting an accident, while still being cost-effective for government,” adds Chetty.
According to Zen Citi, there are currently over 1 million accidents being reported annually, which costs the South African government nearly R2-billion to manage.
“With the introduction of Smash’d, the goal is to integrate into the eNatis system and move away from reporting processes requiring a lot of resources, including printing and paper costs, data capturing and data management,” says Chetty.
“Smash’d ensures that users are made aware of all necessary information required and guides them through every step in reporting their accident at the scene to avoid wasting time,” Chetty says.
While the reporting process on Smash’d still requires users to visit the police station, Zen Citi says that it is working towards making the submission an electronic process. Smash’d is available on the Google Play store and will soon be available on the Apple App store. Other features on the app include GPS location sharing and an emergency services button.
