When the idea was first born, Nobert was enclosed in the house, very far from his family, due to the lockdown guidelines that had been put in place to prevent the further spread of coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which causes COVID-19. It was in April 2020, around the time when about half of the world’s population was under lockdown, with billions of people in more than 90 countries or territories having been asked or ordered to stay at home by the authorities. Nobert’s biggest fears were how his wife would continue to commute to work using public means of transport, his daughter was about to make two years of age, and so in one year, she would be of kindergarten going-age. He started to dream on how to save his family, and all other families that were having the same fears and challenges.
Nobert learnt that sharing of ideas was the best way to having the dreams become reality! When he shared with his colleagues, he learnt that they had had the same dream; and the journey to forming AlertTaxi started in high gear. Zoom meetings organised by the team members to brainstorm about the project deliverables and all other parameters were the order of the day during the lockdown. They all agreed that something had to be done amidst the fears at the time; the people would not remain indoors forever. They needed to move out of their houses, hit the roads and go working for their families, communities, and the nation. School going young generation needed to access centers of education, the sick to the medical facilities, Commerce and Trade had to resurrect again, and the National Economy saved.
Among the team, was a very enterprising Software engineer – James. His expertise came in handy, and was the architect of AlertTaxi application. James has been and continues to be instrumental in bringing the dream into reality.
