The pandemic hit hard and unexpectedly. A non-profit organization reached out to us for contact-tracing mobile application design and development.
As almost nobody has done it before, we had to dig very deep for details
The scope was pretty huge, we had to design it for 10 million users
It was needed ASAP as the pandemic accelerated
The aim of our research was to find the best solution to track the spread of the virus. Our goal was to do this with the least effort required by monitoring intersections of infected people.
Design the risk identification based on recently visited places
Ensure smart caching every 14 days to decrease the amount of stored data
We used encrypted keys to preserve non-exposed users’ privacy
Following our research, we chose the PEPP-PT protocol for digital contact tracing. The next step was to build the centralized network-based architecture for keeping the privacy and confidentiality of the app users
We could identify risk for users based on their recently visited places, people contacted, and historical health reports
We prepared a customized charts for each user to see when they were exposed the most to the virus
The smart caching every 14 days was ensured to decrease the amount of stored data
We designed, developed and launched Europe’s 1st COVID-19 contact tracing application to be used by health organisations and local authorities.
Designed and built an infrastructure for 10+ million users
days we launched IOS app on the German & Swiss markets
