Research, Strategy &
Tech Assessment

As a part of the volunteering program “MetoValue”

Offered support to the SETF team to create a native app on both the iOS and Android platforms where people can get alerted to any type of reported attack in the Syrian war zone to safeguard as many people’s lives as possible.

Metova created a secure application to share updates on attacks, including a specific map of the location and type of attack, as well as specific comments seeking to increase awareness and provide assistance for the Syrian population.

The Syria Watch app receives notifications as soon as the SETF team creates them. Alerts occur in real-time as well as a historical view of recent activity which includes: the attack type, severity, description, and location. These alerts can also be shared to increase awareness outside of the mobile application.


Approach and

One of the many challenges caused by the ongoing conflict situation in Syria is alerting civilians about areas of possible or current attacks by armed forces.

Having accurate and prompt information on conflicts is crucial to keeping the most unprotected people safe, which created a need to have a simple design focused on the most urgent needs: timely attack alerts which can quickly be used to determine key information about location and severity.

Metova specializes in creating custom software solutions with a key focus on service industries, the connected home, vehicle, and the Internet of Things.
The SETF and Metova teams identified key challenge areas for delivering the necessary solution:

Development and Delivery

Metova built native mobile applications to be used as a platform for the SETF team to broadcast this critical information as well as to create a channel for the public to receive information.

Metova’s key development challenge was to design and build an easy to use application that could be used by both sides, the SETF team and the public in general. All while having time and resource limitations bound by the volunteer effort by Metova and the limited bandwidth of the SETF team.

To solve these challenges, Metova assembled a team dedicated to specifically assist this humanitarian effort and worked to create an application that could be used by anyone with a simple and straightforward design as well as a quick and effortless way to create and broadcast the notifications.

Delivering the best
possible product

Well-defined QA process to ensure our design and delivery requirements exceeded SETF expectations.

We have a suite of automated and manual test cases that verify functionality, performance, and stability.
This ensures that the application and its functionalities will continue to help SETF meet their goals within the Syrian community by providing a framework to create and distribute alerts while providing the public access to this critical information.
