One of the creators of the application, in statements to Rádio Nacional de Angola (RNA), revealed that the initial idea "was to create an application for a supermarket". However, taking into account the "daily needs of the population" they decided to create a more useful application, which would facilitate access to cash withdrawals.
"We have a lot of difficulties raising money, so we decided to invest in this application first," he explained.
Faced with this reality, the twin brothers, 21 years old and who are taking the Marketing and Business Management Administration course, rolled up their sleeves and created the 'ATM Scanner'.
One of the creators explained that when users access the platform, they will have access to their location to make it easier to find the nearest banks: "Once you access the app, it will give you your exact location and the bank closest to you , if by chance you select a bank without money or paper you have the option to save and as soon as there is a change you will receive a notification".
In addition, he also made it known that users can continue looking for ATMs with cash and paper, as soon as they find it, they can choose the option of 'tracing a route' if they don't know the place to be shown the way.
"If you want a flood perspective, we have a 'status' button, which gives you a flood perspective. We have more options such as the detailed search for banks where you can search for banks and the search by zone", he explained, quoted by RNA.
The application is already registered with the National Copyright and Related Service. However, the brothers reveal that they have some complications in proceeding with the platform, appealing for sponsorships to finish the project.
