The problems encountered by nations or regions that have named streets and properties but which are not electronically or centrally logged or where there is little or no formal addressing are numerous. Symphony International has been designed to alleviate these and provide benefits to Administrative and Commercial sectors.
By creating a centrally stored, structured and organised repository of addresses, Symphony International can help bring benefits to the following:
Central and Regional Government
- Collect domestic and commercial property taxes
- Control on-going development
- Monitor and minimise property related corruption and crime are hindered. This includes:
- Ownership fraud
- Tax avoidance
- Unauthorised building
Key Public Sector Organisations like the Emergency Services
Up to date address information is of the upmost importance to key public sector organisations, such as the Emergency services, where the benefits of having accurate addressing for mobilization is clear. Without clear addressing:
- The management of and response to crime and can be compromised leading to ineffective law and order
- There is uncertainty to the safety of citizens and key assets as fire and rescue services find it difficult to mobilise and take pro-active fire prevention activities
- The health of citizens is affected due to ambulance services being unable to respond to an incident in a timely fashion.
The Provision of Services
The provision of services is adversely affected. Lack of a central address register means planning and billing are also compromised. The areas include:
- Waste collection
Unavailability of address data to private sector companies. The consequence is that it:
- Limits commerce and therefore stifles economic development
- This in turns limits investment and revenue raising scope for central and local governments.
