A DONEGAL-based company has said it will waive the normal cost of its mobile app-based communications platform for companies and organisations in the frontline tackling coronavirus.

Based at CoLab, in Letterkenny’s Institute of Technology, the Nvolve Group is headed by Barry Harper. The company specialises in creating mobile-based communications solutions for frontline, deskless and remote workforces.

Mr Harper said: “Currently, organisations may be using tools like emails, whatsApp and Instagram, which are not effective in connecting and managing communication with many people at once, especially if those people are remote, deskless or working on the frontline.

“Our platform gets rid of all this chatter, is easy use, requires no development effort and can be ready in just a few days.”

He said the company will give any organisation “on the frontline”, access to its communications and mobile app platform for free.

“Every organisation gets their own branded mobile app which will allow them to ensure that their staff are consistently kept in the loop and up to speed at all times. Having one trusted source of information is potentially lifesaving as it will cut down on misinformation in an ever-changing situation”, said the chief executive.
