Cambodian Government Emergency Response

Success Story

COVID-19 Broadcast solution for Cambodian Government

Not only did Slash help us build an award-winning eKYC solution, they have become trusted long-term tech partners. It just made sense to bring them fully onboard in our journey.
Matthew Tippets, CEO of Clik

Slash co-organized a “HacKH the Crisis” hackathon to build a suite of key tools in rapid time, to empower Cambodia to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the cities and provinces. When the call action came during the online hackathon early April 2020, Slash and Clik partnered up as one-team, “Clash”, to build a solution to help the government with COVID-19 emergency response. Clash built a Broadcast Solution to enable the Cambodian government to communicate to registered users over multiple messaging platforms (Telegram, Messenger and SMS) using a single tool.

Emergency Response
Geographic Reach

The Broadcasting Solution gives the government of Cambodia a simple and convenient way to establish a “single source of truth” to the population. The platform allows for secure administrative and editorial access to a CMS to prepare and publish the content. It also enables the creation of anonymous custom surveys, polls and sub-polls, using the chatbot functionality of Telegram and Messenger, and aggregates the data in a dashboard for policy makers.

Project Highlights

The Clash worked closely with the Ministry of Post & Telecommunication (MPTC) in Cambodia to plan and design the Broadcast solution to meet their needs.

A successful MVP was hacked together during the 48h weekend hackathon “HacKH the Crisis” and gave the MPTC the confidence that the solution may be feasible and viable to deploy.

In a record time of 8 work-days, the Clash built a production-ready solution for the government. Special consideration was given to the backend to ensure security and no individual data collection.

The Clash worked as one-team with government officials and the AWS Public Sector team to prepare the solution for a possible rapid deployment across the population. The solution was built free of charge as our social contribution to crisis management.

The project was handed over to NIPTICT, the National Institute of Posts, Telecoms & ICT, to take forward the emergency response solution. Ultimately, the government decided not to launch the solution.

The backend is built on NodeJS, frontend on ReactJS, infrastructure on AWS.
