Where the community turned ideas into helpful apps
On March 16, 2020 we kicked off the COVID-19 Community Response Program and over the course of six months,
the community brainstormed ideas, then worked together to create and launch local and global solutions to help others in this time of need.
The program officially ended on September 16, 2020read all the details here.
 
OutSystems committed to helping launch 19 ideas focused on helping solve a global problem, using our product and expertise.
Providing free access to our enterprise-grade software, capable of handling large-scale projects if needed, for the duration of the pandemic.
Dedicating full-time support from our Community Team Advocates to enable, coach, and work with the OutSystems developers on these projects.

An app that allows small local businesses that do or do not have website/ e-commerce to advertise their services and changes, in context of COVID-19, on their business operations to local Neighbors.

As main users, we will have citizens and Local business owners/representatives

The main use cases we propose are:

  • Local businesses can sign up through a platform and fill in their information, like: Updated opening hours/delivery hours, contact information, location, list of services they deliver, changes to their business operations in effect right now and series of small posts/tweets
  • Citizens can easily find and consult the information above in their immediate neighborhood / current location. They should be able to filter by services and even quickly find who is open or delivering right now or for a certain time. They can then contact the local business or head there.

Built with the support of Lisbon City Council, who will liaise with two national associations to scale this initiative - AHRESP and UACS.
