COVID strikes early in the rewrite. The team decides to pivot and launch a new contactless QR code check-in solution to assist businesses with contact tracing.  Two weeks later EVA Check-in is launched complete with new branding and website. Dozens of customers sign up immediately.

Q3

A large NZ ski area reaches out looking for help to manage visitor numbers up the mountain. COVID means visitor numbers need to be constrained. The solution is a new car park booking solution – EVA Parking – which integrates with Check-in

Q4

EVA Check-in has grown significantly. A big burst of NZ customers mostly wanes as COVID comes under control in NZ, but EVA continues to be in high demand in Queensland where it becomes the de facto standard for all outdoor sports, then for many businesses,  hospitals and councils.
