Dr. Viduthalai Virumbi B. Health Officer, Tamil Nadu State COVID War Room
Utkarsh Roy Co-founder of IntroBot, and Core Team Member at COVID Citizens
Shyam Sundar N. Founder, GoFloaters
"Zoho has created a solution for us using Zoho CRM to combat Covid. Volunteers at the Tamil Nadu Covid War Room use the app to address Covid-related requests and issues coming in through the 104 helpline—for finding beds, to manage requests for oxygen, medicines, and food. The app is being deployed in phases to 50,000 volunteers. Based on the need, we'll scale the operation to 2 Lakh volunteers. The use of technology will help us in quickly responding to patients needing critical care, efficiently managing and allocating available resources, and monitoring the situation closely as we will have real-time visibility into the operation."
“COVID Citizens is a community-driven collective which verifies and crowd-sources pan-India information on critical COVID resources such as medicines, oxygen cylinders, beds, blood tests, meal services, plasma, ambulances, and more. Zoho supports COVID Citizens through their tool for social media outreach.”
"A group of volunteers got together to help a patient in Chennai find a hospital bed. The team used Google Sheets and WhatsApp to run their operations. This was proving to be difficult and also had issues with duplication of effort. We decided to build an application to streamline the entire process. Using Zoho Creator, we quickly built and launched the app in 48 hours. Today more than 120 volunteers are helping 100+ patients find hospital beds everyday using the system."
