Web app for inventory
With funding from the EU within the framework of CreatiFi Accelerators, Funka will develop a prototype for a web app for self-inventory for accessibility in the built environment. The project is realised in cooperation with OnSpotStory and the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm. Forum Virium Helsinki Hub acts as support to the companies that have been granted funds.
To be able to realize one of my dream projects feels great, I’ve wanted to work in this direction for years, Tommy Hagström, Project Manager at Funka comments. We’re certain that there is a need for an easy to use and mobile tool for self-inventory and this has the potential to become really good.
The project’s objective is to enhance Funka’s tool for self-inventory so that it can be used more flexibly. We will also evaluate if there is potential in the Fi-Ware technology that can complement requested features. The funding is given to creative companies to develop the future Internet.
A good product gets even better
Simplification is the key word; the tool will be mobile and those who perform inventories shall in an easy way be able to use the phone’s features and other apps to further facilitate the work.
Funka’s method for self-inventory is based on involving the client in the work for accessibility, to increase awareness at the same time as the inventory is performed.
It’s exciting to combine our different sections in this manner, says Anna Kivilehto, Project Coordinator at Funka. Both our developers and the experts in built environment take part in the work. And the best thing is that we can spread knowledge on accessibility to all others in the network around CreatiFi.
The innovation project that we’ve been granted runs for a year and has a budget of 50 000 Euros. After that period there is the possibility to apply for further funding for commercialisation.
