Developers inside the Partnership for Innovation Technology Center have been working on a lot of programs.
Those working for UBMe are ready to launch an app to help businesses as we continue in the green phase of reopening during the coronavirus pandemic.
"I would say it has gone from something optional to something more of a utility. Where it is something that is truly needed not only to make people feel more safe coming out to the business but really making the employees feel safe as well," said UBMe CEO and Founder Val Arzunian.
UBMe is a curbside communication app. Customers make appointments with a business and when they arrive they communicate with the business via the app.
"As soon as you arrive at the location you just open the app, you see the PIN for the business you are at, you tap the PIN, and then you check into that business," Arzunian said.
The founders of the company say the app can work with all types of businesses that now require customers to wait outside before coming in for a service.
Also, it can help restaurants still doing curbside or with a lot of customers waiting to get in because of the new coronavirus re-opening rules of 50-percent capacity.
The company has been testing the app at a hair salon in New Jersey for two weeks. The plan is to launch it in the Lehigh Valley next week and the company hopes to work with some local municipalities as well.
