Number of posts:

Total 1 consultancy contract, for North Macedonia


Individual IT experts, teams of IT experts, legal entities providing IT and digital solutions for developing applications.



Objectives and scope of the assignment

The Expert will identify and develop digital solutions for REDI Recycling Initiative. The digitization of the REDI Recycling initiative consists of developing two software solutions: an internal web/mobile application for the processes within the REDI Recycling initiative and a mobile application for end-users.

The internal application is to be used by REDI’s team to manage the database of users, and keep track of field operations (status of waste bins: full, empty, to be removed/replaced, etc.; status of collectors: on a break, on a job, day-off etc.), to record the spent materials and collected quantities of paper and plastic and to create the collectors’ schedules and optimize their routes with the help of AI.

The user’s application should facilitate the process of applying for the service, including agreeing to our Terms of Reference and the day-to-day communication with the users, which is currently scattered on various platforms (phone, email, social media). The application should also help educate the users on proper waste separation by introducing a rating system for each building according to the quality of the collected waste (e.g. 1 star for poor waste separation – food, glass, etc.; 5 stars for excellent separation – only paper and plastic!)

The successful REDI Recycling app is downloaded by all current users and helps attract new users with its simple design and immediate contact to the REDI Recycling initiative. The internal app should be easy to use for the team of field- and administrative workers alike and standardizes the company’s daily operations, as well as the methods for keeping track of all necessary data.
The REDI Recycling app should centralize the current mode of operation, which functions over multiple platforms (Google forms, Google sheets, email, phone, and social media).

The final product should be in 2 languages, Macedonian and English language.
