How Uengage Has Developed Essentials Delivery Platform For Govt Of Punjab During Coronavirus Crisis
While the nation is battling the sudden lockdown with the intent of practicing and ensuring social distancing, the concerns over gathering essential items and groceries have continued. But now we can ease our worries a bit.
For resolving the delivery of essential services during the 21 day lock-down Uengage has taken up the onus and developed an essentials delivery platform for Govt of Punjab with emphasis on the stay at home. This would not only discourage venturing out of the houses but also limit the spread of Coronavirus/Covid-19 by sending all the essentials at your doorstep.
How Does This Work?
For Customers/ Citizens: Daily Needs Ordering App Embedded in Punjab Govt Cova App
For District Administration: Onboarding and Management Dashboard
For Shops: Order Management and Catalogue Management Dashboard
For Delivery Rider: Rider App for order Tracking (android only)
Download & Register - Shops have to download Cova Punjab Android/IOS App and register as an authorized shop by filling all required fields such as Business Details, Essentials Categories, and Rider Details.
