Written by

We help businesses and public places efficiently manage their crowd flow during this pandemic stricken time. Businesses can easily upload their space, enter information like operating hours & total occupancy and start accepting bookings from users.  

What is the need are you focusing on?

Research suggests that vaccination will take at least 16 - 18 months to become available to the public. This means the social distancing norms (like setting occupancy cap in supermarkets and shopping) are here to stay till then. We've already started to see people waiting in an hour-long queue just to enter for grocery shopping. We will start seeing this problem in other public places once the lockdown starts to ease down. 

We want to solve this problem by letting business efficiently manage their crowd-flow. This will not only help businesses ensure safety, save the time of their customer, and help businesses to gain back confidence.

Which type of submission are you sharing?

  • Identifying a gap that needs to be addressed

Describe the business pivot or adaptation in 3-4 sentences.

We are developing a mobile app where users can easily see the realtime crowdedness, pre-book time of arrival, and easily check-in using the QR Code for a particular place. On the other hand, businesses can efficiently maintain social distancing norms by setting up booking limits for a particular time. The booking processes will be completely automated which makes it easier for these businesses to focus on other important things.

byts.app would be super useful. In case you're curious, a similar app was proposed here on OpenIDEO--it's called "Spaced."
