SpoedtestCorona, a chain of Covid-19 testing centers that Symphony Solutions has been supporting as a technical partner has been recognized by honorable mention in the pandemic response category of World Changing Ideas 2022. Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas Awards and its pandemic response category distinguish programs, products, policies and anything else designed with an intention to reduce the health effects of Covid-19 or economic effects of lockdowns during the second year of the pandemic. SpoedtestCorona app was created to address the urgent need for testing that is accessible, affordable, and allows people to get results in a matter of minutes, not days. Thus, the service provides an extremely reliable rapid test that makes it clear within 15 minutes after the test has been carried out whether there is an infection or not. Rapid Covid testing service works in 4 simple steps. Via the app, a person can select the location date and time to get tested. All the necessary information and confirmation are then sent by email. At the appointed time the person visits one of our testing facilities to collect nasal and throat swabs. The encrypted email with the test results is sent as soon as possible. The rapid testing method not only works for the sake of the comfort of an individual who wants to get tested and go on with their life but also allows eliminating the risk of asymptomatic Covid-19 carriers spreading further the virus, endangering people around them without even as much as suspecting it. Leveraging cloud-native technologies allowed to create a solution that keeps up with the high level of compliance and data security, and is highly scalable taking into account the need to serve corporate customers with thousands of employees to be processed. “Making testing for Covid-19 fast, affordable, easily accessible, and safe was our goal and joint contribution to addressing the global crisis. What makes SpoedtestCorona different from similar projects in the Netherlands is our fully automated platform as well as the combination of test locations and mobile units. Which allows us to scale up and down very easily and makes us the most flexible company out there,” says Valentina Synenka, Chief Marketing Officer at Symphony Solutions About World Changing Ideas Awards Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas awards honor products, concepts, companies, policies, and designs that are pursuing innovation for the good of society and the planet. 2022 marks a fifth year of honoring large companies, sustainability initiative and any projects that might help solve world problems we are facing.
