We are in the process of developing a simple and intuitive app, which is aimed at volunteers and student assistants in particular who works at cultural institutions. The app obviously works on both Android and iOS, and will be an integrated part of the live/BACKEND Event package.
The app will make it possible to get a quick overview of registered watches as well as watches in tenders. At each watch it will also be possible to include instructions and ask questions in a comment field.
There is automatic communication integrated in the app, which makes communication between all parties smooth. If a watch is changed, all relevant persons will receive an automatic notification via a push message. In addition, it is possible to call in sick via the app, after which managers is notified immediately.
It will later be possible for managers to handle the most important things directly in the app, e.g. issuing and cancelling watches as well as other changes.
The app has been tested at ‘Godset’ in Kolding, Denmark. After the presentation, there was an overwhelming support among the other cultural institutions to help beta test it.
