Process Followed

For developing a productive volunteer and disaster management solution, we followed a progressive method that involved single out problems, the feasibility study of a proposed project and acknowledging the solutions that can be implemented. Taking all these factors into account, we then listed out the challenges encountered by our team and how we overcame the obstacles and acquired the desired outcome.

  • PROBLEM IDENTIFICAION
  • FEASIBILITY STUDY
  • SOLUTION IMPLEMENTATION
  • CHALLENGES
  • FINAL OUTCOME

Problem Identification

Natural and man-induced disasters cause emergency situations resulting in huge loss of life and cost. Many agencies and volunteers help to deal with situations beyond an extent but lack of systematic process sometimes puts an end to their approach. Hence, we aim to provide users with an app that results in a planned and rapid response in such emergencies.

  • Helps people responding to the concerns with the help of volunteers
  • Locate tracking and incident management functions
  • Provides people with safety catch updates
  • One-touch notification to assigned responders

Feasibility Study

After identifying the problems faced by users in such a crisis, an app that aims to reduce or avoid the potential losses from uncertainties by assuring prompt and appropriate assistance to the victims was needed to be crafted. Therefore a solution that functions well in emergency log and managing incident response came into existence.

  • Each emergency Campaign should be planned effectively
  • Real-time maps and report dashboards
  • Gets status updates instantly on location or entity
  • Recognizing specific areas of concern by volunteers
  • Responding to incident-specific information

Implementation

User research

The solution you are creating will all be in vain if the product is not user-specific so it is important to understand the audience’s preference. User research was implemented by the QSS team to be aware of the real-world problems confronted by users.

Product discovery workshop

After carrying through meaningful user research, we decided to discuss the design to implement while in an application and many such important things with the client. On that account, we set up a meeting where our team explained the outright viewpoint of the solution to the client by proposing some relevant questions such as significant features for the app, latest technology trends, etc.

Our team spent the day with the client understanding the intention behind the application. This aided us to gain the necessity of the application in obedience to users. After finalizing the budget, we further discussed the mobile app layout, screen design, and potential customers. This helped us in knowing what kind of product the client actually wants to build and how we will come up with something that will dominate the market.

Competitor Analysis

After putting through the user research and product discovery workshop, it was important for us to discover similar solutions available in the market in order to make our application highly competitive and dominating.

The Challenges

During the several stages of planning, there are things that make an app very competitive in the market. A developer, therefore, comes across with many challenges to ensure market domination. Some of the major challenges faced are

  • Verifying the profile of participants and volunteers
  • Successful deployment with the availability of Volunteers
  • Accessible from the web, Android and iOS mobile apps
  • Quick user-activated tracking
  • Prioritizing participant's verification
  • Campaign alerts for all active volunteers

Final Outcome

We have created a successfully deployed system for US-based clients running on the Azure cloud. The JS-based technology stack was used in the development of an app. Significant benefits of this mobile solution are -

  • System ready to register volunteers with simplified user interfaces
  • Automated background checks for managers to create volunteers database
  • End to end quick campaign generation process
  • Reports generation in multiple formats
  • Advance communication between users during any disaster deployment

I was taken aback by the prompt response from the volunteer. The app is simple to use and the safety catch feature makes it best in the industry. I will definitely suggest this app to everyone.
