Digital Public Works
by Kayla Suhm
NexTo connects public, private, and nonprofit organizations delivering various supplies and services to community members in Milwaukee.
Neighbor Express was developed by the US Digital Response to assist cities coordinate food distribution to residents who are most vulnerable to Covid-19 due to compromised health or other reasons. NexTo (originally Neighbor Express-MKE) was developed to support organizations and initiatives coordinating various Covid-19 response activities including MaskUpMKE and Milwaukee's City Covid-19 Response Team.
Using AirTable, we're able to connect organizations delivering various supplies and services to community members though a hub and spoke model. Each organization maintains its own customer/client data within a secured database while having access to a parent database of resources. By coordinating these unique and individual efforts through one technology solution, initiatives, organizations, and individuals are able to collaborate far more efficiently than if they were attempting to correspond through meetings or email.
NexTo is automating the ability to quickly monitor data on how the city is collaborating in response critical needs. Whether those needs entail volunteers, supplies, food, or other essential supports, NexTo is available to serve as a connecting hub to improve efficiencies in collaboration.
