Google recognizes BevQ, a Kerala app that will virtually manage liquor queues




The app has been developed by Kochi-based startup Faircode Technologies Pvt Ltd to avoid reopening liquor outlets and serpentine queues outside them.


It was developed by a Kochi-based startup called Faircode Technologies Pvt Ltd to avoid reopening liquor shops and serpentine queues outside them.
The proposal for approval was submitted to Google on Friday after a two-tiered test by the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team. The application was selected by a committee headed by the IT Secretary with the Kerala Startup Mission, among 26 others. BevQ was selected based on its technical and financial feasibility.

MG CEO of Faircode Technologies. Vishnu said, “We are in the process of wrapping up the rest of the process before making it available for download. In addition to the backend technical process for uninterrupted operation of the app, it is also necessary to train employees at certain liquor outlets such as liquor outlets to deal with potential bottlenecks. "

Alcohol store employees will be trained through online video tutorials in coordination with Kerala State Beverages Corporation.


'App traffic in Kerala to be 10 times higher'

The government has ruled that liquor shops will be closed for more than two months.

According to a report by The New Indian Express, the developers of BVQ were waiting to get security clearance after asking them to increase the technical capability of the app.

A senior government official said: “Usually a customer will try to get online tokens from at least two or three smartphones, which will increase traffic. This is what was seen in Tamil Nadu and Delhi when apps for the virtual queue system were launched, which led to the crash.

“We have to avoid this scenario in Kerala where traffic will be 10 times more. The app failed to meet this expectation and the startup was asked to work again. Apart from this, Kerala also plans to make it a permanent system. "
