Then every employee is also obliged "Healthy Self-Assessment” / Early detection in the covid-19 risk self-assessment which is given through several questions about health checks against the viral symptoms of the disease.

  • Healthy Self-Assessment: Early COVID-19 detection test with asking several questions surrounding the health examination.
  • Articles: Socialization to prevent COVID-19 by serving updated information and articles about COVID-19
  • History Interaction: users’ interactions history list for the past 21 days
  • Help: a user manual, FAQ, privacy policy, and contact

With all these great features, it will be surely help the ADM employees to maintain their distance during working hour. But, we also have to make this app practical in order to make the user comfortable with using the app. So, we create it with a simple user flow, light color choice, and a simple design, make this app is easy and fast to use for daily.

Result: a safe workplace for higher productivity
