With the World Health Organization declaring COVID-19—the viral disease caused by the novel coronavirus—a pandemic, dissemination of factual information is more important than ever.
At Blue Bite, it is our mission to improve lives by connecting people with information through the physical world. In this time of misinformation and social distancing, we want to ensure our customers are able to leverage our platform and their existing smart products to disseminate factual information to help people stay safe, and to make it easy for people to get involved and help those around them.
The guide below lets you know how to easily add a component to existing experiences that conveys coronavirus-related information to consumers, and enables them to participate in brand-sponsored or other organized relief efforts.
Providing these instructions are part of our own effort to mitigate the negative impacts of this extraordinary circumstance, and we hope this helps your efforts to quickly and efficiently spread important information during these times.
