Our previous internal purpose-led projects have paved the way for Springlabs. Some of these projects are still in the works, others may not venture beyond initial explorations, but like all innovative work, they open up opportunities for impactful change.
Simple Trace: a contact tracing solution to help Kiwis fight Covid-19 together
We launched Simple Trace in May 2020, when the country was in Alert Level 3. It’s a free contact tracing service built by Springloaders in their spare time. Simple Trace was released before the official government app and is an example of what can be achieved in 10 days with a bit of ingenuity, a forward-thinking team, and a driving need to help. It was a popular local solution that we discontinued it for the public once the official NZ COVID Tracer app was up and running.
