"Over 80% of South Korean nurses are using our app, and around 1.5 million nurses around the world are using our app, with 97% in Hong Kong and 20% in the UK. We are zoning in the Middle East and Africa because the number of users is not increasing in these regions," said Jeong Seok-mo, the CEO of FourWheels, the developer of the schedule management app for nurses.
He added, "There are more than 5,000 Korean nurses in the UAE, the place serving as the business hub of the Middle East and South Africa, and these nurses account for more than 80% of the nurses in the neighboring countries, making it an important base for customer expansion."
FourWheels received the support from Soongsil University Startup Support Group to exhibit at GITEX 2019 from Oct. 6 to 10 to introduce My Duty, its shift work schedule management app for nurses.
MyDuty is an app that solves the difficulty of managing schedules of nurses who work shifts. The main feature of this app is that it enables sharing the work schedule to let the family and friends know.
The company is focusing on upgrading the user's convenience along with overtaking the market. It has recently received investment from Kakao Ventures, experiencing rapid growth.
Nurses from Royal Hospital at Ras al Khaimah are already using this app, and the company is actively meeting industry officials while building local customer acquisition strategies.
Jeong said, "I co-founded my company with four co-workers from previous workplace. I have worked with them for more than 10 years, and one of them is the designer and also my wife. The others are also developers. Our biggest strength is that we have faith, trust and love. We are also under development of the app My Shift for other shift workers. It is a service for more than 200 million shift workers around the world, including factory workers, airline crews, policemen and firefighters."
