The most important services of the Hungarian Red Cross will be restarted with an award-winning innovation

The category champion on the #EuvsVirus Pan-European hackathon, Linistry Zrt. will support the two activities of the Hungarian Red Cross with the largest customer traffic – the organisation of blood donations and first aid exams for three months with its digital queue management system to contribute to making the events safe even during the pandemic.

One of the goals of the international online competition that was organised with the contribution of the Ministry for Innovation and Technology and closed in the end of April, was to present innovative solutions that support the continuity of business activities even during the coronavirus pandemic. Among hundreds of applicants, it was Linistry Zrt. that championed this category with the enhanced application of its digital queue management system. The cooperation of the entirely Hungarian-owned start-up company and the Hungarian Red Cross make innovative organisation opportunities accessible for Hungary’s largest charitable organisation that can ensure, everywhere in the country, the adherence to the provisions on social distancing drafted because of the health emergency caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Thanks to the offered two million Hungarian Forints, blood donors can queue through their mobile devices for three months in their selected blood donations, and candidates will be able to take their first aid exam without waiting on-site.
The technology offered by Linistry Zrt. makes it possible to call the candidates to the exam site through their mobile devices instead of personally, and thus waiting for a longer period of time in crowded, enclosed areas can be avoided. The offered supporting application can also shorten the periods between exams, so the waiting lists that formed during the previous months due to the pandemic can be eliminated. Candidates will not have to wait for long to take the exam in first aid risk-free.
