In view of the lockdown, the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has decided to promote use of the TickMe mobile App so that citizens can place online orders with grocery stores, medical shops and restaurants nearby.
The App can also notify the buyers when the orders are ready for pickup or delivery.
As the App intends to use more local shop owners to reduce the delivery time and make the process effective and accurate, in the first phase the BMC in collaboration with the Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited is first making the inventory of the local shop owners of essential commodities.
Once the inventory is in place, the App would be promoted with consumers for downloading and using the App.
The TickMe is designed by a team based in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA and is being led by an IIT Kanpur graduate. Users can download TickMe App using the link: http://onelink.to/tickme.
]The App is free for all consumers on both Android and IOS users for six months from now for shop owners once it is in use. However, presently once the on-boarding of shop owners is done, users can link to the platform.
