TakeTask has created the “Home Quarantine Monitoring” application for the Ministry of Digital Affairs. Quick implementation of the system, as well as swiftly adapting to the current conditions is a response to social needs and above all, to the crisis situation which Poles find themselves in. Other countries are also interested in TakeTask’s solution.
“We are already in talks with other countries interested in our solution. We are proud that as a Polish company, supported by domestic investment funds, have created an application that can support both authorities and society in this difficult time. This is the result of many years of experience and the intensive work of the entire team. It is also worth noting that after two weeks of operation, we already have over 200,000 users in the system, some of whom have already completed the quarantine, which clearly shows that our solution is very much needed during the current situation” says Sebastian Starzyński, founder of the company and CEO of TakeTask S.A.
TakeTask is a Polish technology company creating software for companies and institutions, which is used, among others, to assign, perform and verify tasks on a large scale in many locations simultaneously. Tasks may be different, for example: checking the cleanliness of an object, verifying food temperature and the way products are displayed in the shop as well as reporting equipment faults. So far, the company has completed millions of tasks for many customers. Among its shareholders are individuals and funds such as EEC Magenta and Simpact.
“TakeTask’s participation in creating the Home Quarantine Monitoring application supports the idea of corporate social responsibility. In the face of a humanitarian crisis such as COVID-19 the company was very quickly able to use its knowledge and technology to support important objectives. We all know how important it is for our life and for our health to stay at home during the quarantine period. Nevertheless, we still hear about those who do not follow the recommendations. That is why TakeTask has provided a solution that significantly contributes to ‘flattening the curve’, i.e. stopping the spread of the virus” says Prof. Bolesław Rok, expert in business ethics from Kozminski University and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of TakeTask S.A.
The Ministry of Digital Affairs has chosen TakeTask mainly because the proposed solution is stable, ready for quick start-up and has the full range of expected functionalities. It allowed the implementation of the new application in just 48 hours. An additional advantage was the high attention paid to data security. The application runs on an scalable Microsoft Azure server infrastructure with highest security standards. Its owner is the Ministry of Digital Affairs.
The entire technical infrastructure was adapted to the needs of the Ministry of Digital Affairs and integrated with other systems in a very short time. TakeTask’s IT specialists supported by NASK experts handle the application on a constant basis in order to make it work smoothly.
“With the help of our technology, we managed to efficiently implement a system that supports both state services in the field of management and the control of people under mandatory home quarantine. At the same time, it is an important facilitation for citizens. It would be impossible to launch a system of such high functionality and scalability from scratch within a few days” notes Marek Mróz, co-founder and CTO of TakeTask S.A.
