|1||This is needed NOW. Critical infrastructure orgs don't have a way to manage employees on quarantine, etc. We solve that.|
|2||TEAM: Backed by team of experienced business, tech, and safety leaders--not our first rodeo.|
|3||TRACTION: Already implementing at large construction site, and in conversations with many others. We are actively marketing and its working!|
|4||TECHNOLOGY: Built on solid platform with over $2M invested so far. We have already released our Coronavirus solution|
When Corona Virus hit, the message to the business world was, "have everyone work from home.". Our users can't do that, if they don't work at the site, they don't get paid. Furthermore, many of these workers are paid hourly, and aren't paid if they aren't at the site like salaried workers.
Even more importantly, many of these workers run our critical infrastructure (utilities, oil refineries, etc.), and if they can't work, our economy will suffer even more than it already is!
On March 12, 2020, our team was talking about Corona Virus with our biggest customer and watching it spread--and specifically talking about how our users can't work from home like we can--we said "WE HAVE TO BE PART OF THE SOLUTION!"
Immediately, we brainstormed about what we could do for our users RAPIDLY! Over the next four days (including a weekend), we researched what the CDC and WHO recommended, and brought a retired doctor on staff (via video conference and some stock options!). We also talked to other customers and come first responders to find out how they were going to manage this.
We realized a big challenge was keeping track of who was on quarantine, or self-isolation, how many days they had left before they could return to work, and identifying those who were at risk of transmitting the infection at the work site.
Based on that, we designed a very simple system to allow workers to check in every day, answer a few questions (based on CDC, WHO, and our on-staff physician), and get guidance on whether they should self-isolate or not.
Then, for the organization, we give them simple analytics showing who is at work, who is absent, and how long they have before they can return.
As we have continued to talk to more potential users of this system, we have learned that nobody has the ability in their HR systems to "put someone on quarantine or self-isolation" and track that. They are all using spreadsheets, emails, text messages, etc.---it is a mess!\
We learned that we are onto something here!
Our teams immediately started building this solution, and we rolled out the first version this week and will be testing with live users on April 1, 2020 at a large construction site in Utah.

While all this was happening, our development teams started having to deal with Corona Virus in their areas.
Our US team was put on a "shelter in place order" in Grand Junction, Colorado and has been putting in lots of nights and all weekend for the last two weeks.
Our Gurugram, India team's workspace was shut down--so they rented an apartment next door and moved all their workstations over there so they could work over the weekend. One week later, India ordered a nation-wide shelter in place, and they had to move all the workstations to their homes, and we had to get them high speed Internet hotspots.
Among all of this interruption, they have continued to work and crank out code--we are VERY proud of both our US and India dev teams! We don't have any pics, because they have been working 12-16 hour days, while moving twice, and while taking care of their own families!
We will start rolling out the individual, daily check in next week, and already have a large police department that is very interested in rolling our solution out!
The world economy is going through a shock that has never been seen in the modern world. If our critical infrastructure and first responders are also taken out of the workforce, because an infection spreads through their ranks, our economy will suffer even more!
Edify.ai's Pandemic Management solution is designed to get our workforce back to work fast and safely--so that even if we aren't operating at 100% of capacity, we are operating at as much as possible in a way to reduce risk for the healthy employees.
This money will be used entirely for getting the word out about our app. We have cut our standard price in half, only require one month at a time instead of a year, and are willing to cut the price even more for first responders (or even offer free if we can).
We need this adopted in our society as quickly as possible, to get our economy back to functioning at 100%!
