OutSystems announced the launch of the Integrated Management Platform, that facilitates resource sharing across 18 municipalities in Portugal. The Lisbon Metropolitan Area, the Lisbon City Council, Deloitte, Hi Interactive and OutSystems all partnered on the successful initiative launched as part of the COVID-19 Community Response Programme, which seeks to create up to 20 apps to help fight the Coronavirus.
The Integrated Management Platform allows 18 municipalities around Lisbon, Portugal to quickly and effectively share products, equipment and services, optimising the resources of each municipality and improving collaboration between them during the current emergency situation.
Using the OutSystems low-code platform, the parties collaborated to create a sophisticated marketplace in just two weeks. “With the platform, each municipality can manage all the assets and services it offers, while also sharing information, replenishing supplies and accessing resources from its own stock. It also allows them to request resources from neighbouring municipalities and set automatic alerts on the availability of certain items.”
Well over 300 items are already being managed on the platform, including resources in high demand during the pandemic situation such as gel alcohol, disinfectant, nitrile gloves, surgical masks and goggles. Soon, it will be possible to manage many other medical materials, food, vehicles, accommodations and other strategic items.
“Facing this new reality, there’s a growing need for us to adapt. The OutSystems COVID-19 Community Response Programme intends to help with that adjustment in a concrete and real way,” explained Gonçalo Gaiolas, Product VP at OutSystems.
