The 311 Call Center uses the Motorola Customer Service Request system, which is an advanced tracking system for service request intake and the same system provides immediate routing of requests for services to the responsible department(s). That means departments will be held accountable to update the system and respond to requests for services in an efficient manner. The Motorola
Customer Service Request (MCSR) system is used to streamline the management of information by providing “real-time” data access to reporting.
