Sheshegwaning First Nation creates custom mobile communications app for pandemic response & community messaging
Sheshegwaning First Nation’s Band Administration has partnered with Aivia Design & Technology Engineering to produce a custom mobile application.
The app is capable of sending news updates, announcements, event information, documents, and emergency notifications directly to members’ devices using push notifications that can be tapped to access more information. The technology also allows Band Administration to collect information directly from their membership using fillable forms and surveys.
“The Covid pandemic and accompanying lockdown measures presented us with a strong reason to move more of our communications online,” Chief Dean Roy said in a prepared statement. “We need to be able to reach our members with vital information no matter where they are, at any time. This is particularly crucial now with ongoing updates about COVID safety measures and vaccines needing to be distributed.”
The official Sheshegwaning First Nation app is available now on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
