US-based popular smart mobility app, Hytch Rewards, adds a new feature to its platform that will deliver social distancing rewards to help motivate consumers to stay safe during the pandemic. Dubbed 'Shelter in Place,' the update is intended to "give employers and governments greater ability to confirm and manage compliance in a positive way." The incentive is sure to be of interest to users, as well, as the social distancing reward is for cash. This is funded by "employes, governments, and brands that care about the wellbeing of their employees and communities."
Hytch Rewards will track the user's location to confirm that the individual is, in fact, remaining at home and stepping out only for essential trips like grocery shopping. Prior to the health pandemic, the application was predominantly used to award commuter behavior that reduces traffic congestion and emissions.
