The COVID-19 outbreak has affected the world in many ways. This pandemic has led to the closure of stores, mass unemployment, a financial crisis, and many deaths. If rapid preventative measures would have been taken from the very beginning the fallout could have been mitigated and many lives saved. Today, hospitals are experiencing a lack of manpower, medical supplies, and an influx of COVID-19 patients that have overwhelmed the medical system across the globe.
Driven by social responsibility and customer demand, GiConnect set out to build a Coronavirus prevention system to provide early warning for people who do not know they are infected. GiConnect, a division of Winwin Soft, focuses on IoT, artificial intelligence, and enterprise information construction services.
Building an innovative next-generation system is not easy. Not only was the development window very tight, but the complexity and high failure rate of building a real-time system was a major concern for GiConnect.
Monitoring the spread of disease in real time has an enormous impact on transmission rates. With the extremely high infectivity rate of COVID-19 one infected person going unnoticed could mean the infection of many others. By developing this application, GiConnect was able to slow the spread of the virus and retain the trust of their customers.
There was absolutely no time to waste when developing this application. Because GiConnect chose to develop on Vantiq, they were able to build their solution in a fraction of the time it would normally take. In less than two weeks they had a working application that is ready to be deployed in the field.
As we continue to get a hold on the Coronavirus as a society it will become less important for applications like GiConnect’s to be used day-to-day. As a result of developing on Vantiq, GiConnect is able to evolve their application to fit the needs of their customers. By making this into a generalizable smart building application GiConnect will still be able to sell their solution and serve their customers.
