Divio Technologies supports fight against COVID-19 through new open-source information-sharing tool

Divio Technologies AB (publ) today announced the availability of CoReport – an open-source information-sharing tool designed to help local governments manage their resources in addressing COVID-19. CoReport was developed and launched on the Divio platform, in response to a request from a local government region of Switzerland.

As the COVID-19 virus continues to spread globally, local governments are under increasing pressure to coordinate their resources for an effective response. 

A Swiss canton, one of the local government regions of Switzerland, requested urgent help to build a tool that could collect frequent status updates from frontline responders – primarily the police, hospitals, testing centres and other emergency services. The information would be centralised and made available to visualise the current status and availability of resources.

The canton’s officials contacted a Divio partner – the Zurich-based growth hacking and development agency “what.” – with the request to design, develop and launch this functionality in under a week. Divio contributed engineering and cloud expertise to help what. develop and deploy the CoReport service.

“The COVID-19 virus is having a huge impact on all our lives, in many different ways. We are honoured to support the project and contribute to the incredible efforts of governments and emergency services. I am especially proud of how our teams have come together to deliver a production-ready service in under a week.”

Jon Levin – CEO, Divio Technologies

CoReport is an open-source project that can be freely used and modified. It is also available via the Divio platform.

About what.

what. was founded out of our frustration that there is no good service offering for startups. 

Traditional digital agencies or IT companies rarely fit into the lean startup development methodology. We decided to change this. 

We help companies throughout the product development cycle. From the early stage all the way to the design, development and launch. 

In the early stage of the concept, we work with the founders to integrate a commercial model to get them to think about how they are going to sell to their first customers. 

During the MVP phase, we design and develop prototypes, smoke screen tests to validate the product with the first test customers. 

Finally, in the growth hacking phase we help customers onboard their first 10, 100 or 1000 customers. 

We are now one of the leading growth hacking agencies for modern companies, with a distributed team of over 30 professionals in 13 countries.
