Holmdel, NJ, USA, June 25, 2020 -- ufirst, an Italy-based digital platform available via mobile app which offers a cloud queue management solution, chose Vonage (Nasdaq: VG), a global provider in cloud communications helping businesses accelerate their digital transformation, to power the development of its messaging features for the ufirst platform. This latest development builds upon ufirst's mission to improve the way people access essential services in the most congested areas of cities by creating virtual queues for these businesses. This is particularly important to adhere to the new social distancing guidelines dictated by the COVID-19 emergency.
ufirst designed the new messaging feature to allow all people, even the least technologically savvy, to safely navigate public queues, including those at local pharmacies and grocery stores. This feature offers consumers the ability to practice social distancing and reserve their physical place in the queue simply by providing their mobile phone number. With this technology, consumers do not need to wait in line and risk coming into close contact with others.
"ufirst is particularly proud of the partnership with Vonage. Vonage was able to immediately understand our needs and that allowed ufirst to release, in a very short period of time, a new functionality and a useful service, even for those who are less inclined to use technology resources, but who may have the greatest need for safe and easy access to essential services like food shopping," said Matteo Lentini, Managing Director of ufirst.
"Due to our unique ability to power the remote delivery of essential services, we have seen a sharp increase in demand for solutions built on Vonage APIs since the start of the COVID-19 crisis," said Omar Javaid, President, Vonage API Platform Group. "In this new environment, Vonage is powering important solutions built to help people through this challenge, and we are proud to support ufirst as they allow even the least tech savvy among us to make their lives easier with a simple text message."
