Affordable way of curbing the spread of covid-19
Explain your idea in details:
The objective of creating a temperature sensor is to create an environment in which it is possible to effectively curb the spread of covid-19. As a result of developing a system that enables everyone the ability to monitor there temperature at an easier access. This app does not only enable accessible monitoring of an individual's temperature but also notifies government of potential cases and these cases go straight through to government hotlines .The objective is to also make the app industrially efficient during this period of global recession. The innovative approaches would be using the camera on a cellphone as well as the fingerprint system to work alongside the app and scan for the temperature as most smart phones have this attribute thus making the app more affordable.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The target market for this project would be everyone because it's something that's in demand not only by health professions but by everyday individual. The temperature sensor market is expected to grow not just in demand but from USD 6.3 billion in 2020 to 8.8 billion by 2027 . Measures used to promote the product would be having a pre- launch thus creating an atmosphere of expectations and excitement for its release answering FAQ also makes potential clients feel more at ease as there concerns are being address. Also giving a free trail of the app to an exclusive group of people in exchange for them to promote the product on social media platform. It would also be important to have a website that gives details of the app , it should be interesting for readers so that they can spread news about the app.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The app temperature sensor has a mass target .As it is a unique app that has not yet reached the markets and therefore it has a lot of potential. It has been customised to accommodate the general needs of customers , which is getting there temperature scanned at there own accessibility. The app would be run on a subscription fee which allows customers to use the app for a specific period of time after having a 7day trial after that it becomes a monthly subscription. Vouchers would be given to the first ten app users . The app would be given a year guarantee . The app would be outsourced on the App store, Play store etc. An online website would be created to give customers interesting information about the app. A virtual pre- launch should be done to create the anticipation for the app. The App will have a self-service which allows customers to use the app on there own as well as an automated services. Advertising would also be done through brand influencers and through pop ads. The app would be financed through capital received by a personal investment (ie.bank loan). As well as funding through venture capital. Plans would also be made to spark interest from angels would also be a good prospective for the business. Another way would be using crowd funding as well as collaborating with companies such as huawei etc. The app is cost driven as it is focused on reducing cost whenever possible the business would be run by economise of scope as costs are reduced with the increase of business operations.
