LOS ANGELES, June 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- 3Di Systems (3disystems.com), a national leader in community engagement solutions, announced the creation of an online and mobile anti-price gouging solution to help Los Angeles county residents continue to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
With an increasing number of Covid-19 positive individuals in the Los Angeles area, some businesses have taken advantage of the panic, increasing prices of essential items like toilet paper, disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizers, and more. Often, these price increases equate to over a 10% markup on goods and services that could help residents to successfully get through an emergency. Not only is this practice unethical, it's illegal in the state of California, and prevents many from acquiring the supplies they need to keep themselves, and their families, healthy and safe.
"3Di was approached by the County of Los Angeles Department of Consumer and Business Affairs (DCBA) to discuss how we could help the community solve this problem," said Rajiv Desai, CEO of 3Di Systems. "Within 48 hours, we used our low-code platform and created an anti-price gouging solution that will allow county citizens to lodge price gouging complaints and help to launch investigations to enforce consumer protection laws."
The technology was built leveraging 3Di System's Engage platform, which allows citizens to use current technologies to request services and interact with city administration directly. The anti-price gouging app will allow citizens to report illegal pricing using a mobile app or a browser on their phone, as well as to attach any relevant photos.
