Governments and related organizations are increasingly concerned about finding and responding to reports of fraud and waste. Traditionally this has been addressed through anonymous hotlines. Purple Forge’s mobile solution offers the opportunity to allow anonymous reports to be submitted which reduces the costs associated with phone hotlines. The Fraud and Waste Reporting App also offers the ability for users to submit more detailed report information, including location, text, photo, audio and video.
Purple Forge’s Fraud and Waste Reporting App can be tailored to meet the needs of the organization and specific versions can be tailored for organization staff and the public.
Auditors report that the money fraud and waste reporting apps help recover can more than outweigh their costs.
