COVID-19 Community Response Update - March 25

Hello Community! 

Below is a quick update on the status of the COVID-19 Community Response Program.

Project #7

This project will be an e-commerce platform to municipalities (Lisbon Municipality is 100% supporting this idea), which will have access to commerce and volunteer associations, that will allow them to manage this crisis by providing:

  • A means for shops (Food markets, Pharmacies, ...) to expose an emergency catalog for essential goods, with basic stock management

  • Based on Geolocation, a consumer can find what is available near his/her house

  • Volunteers or any public entity can register to help on the distribution to vulnerable people

  • Integration with online payment methods to avoid physical contact

  • Integration with distribution platforms (Glovo, Uber Eats, etc.)

This is not only a problem for the economy and to keep jobs, but it also imposes severe limitations to people depending on those shops that are now constrained to stay home - mainly the most vulnerable ones, elderly and seek people. This is a combination of two ideas “Food and Basic Goods Delivery” and “Around Me”.

Criteria reminder:

  • Potential impact as measured by total population helped

  • Technical feasibility of using the OutSystems platform

  • Project team commitment to build and run the project

  • Availability of relevant subject matter experts in the team
