Kyyba Innovations LLC, a Michigan-based technical solutions corporation focused on solving global issues, has developed the PontiaConnect app as a solution to provide the City of Pontiac with another communications platform to engage with its residents. Kyyba developed the mobile app with some interactive features that could help in quickly identifying those at risk and micro hot spots of coronavirus.
The new app will help track symptoms of thousands of users across the city, while still protecting user privacy. “We will partner with local health units to use this data to assess how best to support high-risk communities in Pontiac as we fight this pandemic. We hope to engage with our residents and communicate accurate news and information, not only about the pandemic, but also about issues that serve and touch our community members,” said Mayor Waterman.
“The app uses technology to connect people with the city and vice-versa,” said Kyyba Innovations Managing Director Tel Ganesan.
PontiaConnect asks users to answer a few simple questions about their current health symptoms, then check in every day to update whether they are feeling better or have noticed new symptoms. Anyone who is a resident of Pontiac can download the City of Pontiac app from their iOS or Android phones. PontiaConnect can be found in the app store as City of Pontiac.
