Anti-social behaviour 'nightmare' ignored, says report

A recent news article on the BBC about Anti-Social Behaviour caught our eye. It discussed how harmful ASB can be and in the story the below quote popped out at us.

The Local Government Association said: "Councils know people look to them to tackle the anti-social behaviour, which can make a law-abiding resident's life hell or blight an entire neighbourhood.

"It's a role they take extremely seriously but one which is being made increasingly challenging as a result of losing 60p out of every £1 they had from government to spend on services in the past decade."

We know money is tighter than ever and that communities still expect so much from their local authorities, we personally saw the effects from years of the cuts first hand whilst still working for a local authority and consequently saw the remaining officers picking up the extra work left behind and that’s where our ASB system can help. ESB Anti-Social Behaviour is a cloud software service that readily and effectively meets all of your needs for the handling of ASB complaints, reports, investigation activities, enforcement, prosecution and risk assessments. Its purpose is to take out as much of the work that can be automated as possible away from council officers freeing them up to deal with more important matters.

And because we know budgets are tight our price is plain and simple, £5,995 PA no matter the size of team! The standard set up fee is £2,000. We won’t hit you with unfair extra charges on top of that for individual user licenses and there are no hidden extras.

Pentagull's migration to Redis for high availability session state

Session state is an integral part of the ESB platform - we use it to keep track of logged in users, transactions that are in progress and a whole host of other bits and pieces that don't make sense to send to the client or store in the database. Because of this, the infrastructure that provides our session state needs to be highly available and resilient to both planned and unplanned events.
