PublicStuff Joins Bateman Group Family!


The momentum continues at Bateman Brooklyn; on the heels of moving into our high-rise in the sky, we met with a hot New York startup called PublicStuff that helps local governments turn civic inquiries into tangible community improvements by connecting people directly to their city representatives. It does this with a free, easy-to-use mobile app where people can submit and track service requests, and PublicStuff delivers the request to the right person, in any city, to get it resolved quickly. The company is already working with more than 200 cities across the country.

Pretty cool, eh?

We are thrilled to announce that PublicStuff has formally joined our client roster. There are many of synergies with our work with Recyclebank, and we see PublicStuff as a great addition to our “Social Good” practice, where we are looking to work with companies that are using technologies to solve social or environmental problems in innovative, disruptive ways. We believe the key to success in this area is providing a strong value proposition to all parties involved. In the case of both Recyclebank and PublicStuff that value to the municipalities is cost savings, community improvement and better engagement with their citizens.. For consumers, both companies are enabling them to be an active part of improving their communities in a measurable way.

We’ve got a major announcement coming later this month with PublicStuff, so be on the lookout. You can follow us Twitter  @BatemanGroupPR for the latest and greatest. We think they are poised for some excellent growth. If you want to check it out yourself, you can download the app. Even if PublicStuff isn’t in your city yet, you can still use the app to submit service requests in your own community. Regardless of location, the company will make sure your request gets into the hands of the people that are able to fix your issues.

Welcome aboard!
