Startup Launches Social Distancing App
Indianapolis-based tech startup Andromeda LLC has launched an app, which it says can help businesses manage crowds and lines in an effort to promote social distancing. Co-founder Marc Ebtinger says the Queue Saver app monitors the number of customers at a location and allows them to wait in a virtual line with their phone once the business’ capacity is met.
“Occupancy caps protect employees and clients during this pandemic. Max occupancy is the law in Connecticut and Indiana, and is implemented by many stores,” said Ebtinger.
Andromeda says the app is a simple tool that will help handle maximum capacity in response to the current need for social distancing. Customers use a QR code or weblink to immediately get in line without needing an app download.
The startup says the app features a simple interface, and businesses can set their maximum occupancy and manage access to patrons in a queue.
Andromeda says it has received international recognition for the creation of other patent-pending web apps, and Queue Saver is its fourth problem-solving tech product.
