Problem #12: A Reminder App for Non-Tech Businesses

Managers of factories usually seem to be on the call an awful lot. Why? Because they are making more calls co-ordinating and reminding people of things than actually initiating actions.

Solution: Build a system - a smart phone app which co-ordinates with a back-end server. Have your morning call, and then set reminders for your staff (supervisors, accountants etc). The app will send them periodic reminders, and the only way to stop the reminders would be to give a missed call (to the number attached to reminder). Once missed call is given, task turns green in the smart phone app of the big boss. Especially for those travelling, days could become way more processed with a morning call, getting everyone onboard, setting reminders, just keeping an eye on the activities done, and then towards the end of day, calling up just the failing ones.
