If you thought that addressing some of your most private concerns to an app that went by the name of ‘Maya Apa’ was slightly ‘too new age’ for you (or some may find it outright strange), the app’s presence at Digital World 2016 will help you to better understand Maya Apa – through a real life demonstration of what their digital service provides.
Returning to Digital World for the second time, the Maya Apa team have put together an interactive ‘user experience’ for exhibition visitors.Surrounded by their signature Maya pink colours and with a grass-covered floor, the stall conveys a strong sense of well-being in line with Maya Apa’s tagline – Your Personal Digital Well-being Assistant. The actual website strongly promotes the Maya Apa service, alongside offering a vast assortment of content relevant to the diverse needs of users. It is straightforward and purpose-driven, just like the app.
The recently re-launched Maya.com.bd site remains on display, inviting visitors to discover Bangladesh’s first digital counselling service. The Maya team remain on hand to tell you all about how their unique service works through their app and website; visitors are encouraged to submit their queries to Maya Apa on the spot so they can trial the service and be part of an information revolution. On the other hand, app downloads have been on a roll as visitors grasped the need-based solutions that Maya Apa offered.
A really interesting feature of the stall is a life-size Android phone cut-out, displaying visuals of the Maya Apa app, but with a fully qualified doctor seated on the other side of the screen, allowing for stall visitors to sit down for a free medical consultation. This added the much sought after element of interactivity within the exhibition and let the audience know what Maya Apa delivers - advice from experts, with a focus on convenience and ease of use. During the exhibition, this ‘doctor’s station’ proved to be a very exciting feature within the E-Commerce & Mobile Innovations hall.
With the app having been launched just last year, the Maya Apa service has already received over 100,000 user queries, with lots more value added services being released in the near future, including a premium version of the Android app. These apps and others used by the backend (experts) of the service, along with their website, are all created by Maya’s strong team of in-house engineers; it is needless to say that the potential for the this social benefit-oriented tech firm is truly endless.
