About assist-Mi

assist-Mi® is an assistance app that offers help to disabled users on the go, giving you more independence when accessing everyday goods and services.

The assist-Mi app removes barriers and connects the user directly with service providers to request real-time assistance at the touch of a button.

How to get the best out
of the Coventry pilot

Between September 2015 and March 2017, assist-Mi is partnering with various organisations and businesses in Coventry to see how the app can benefit customers to access locations, goods and services.

Coventry has the ambition to become a more accessible city in line with its role as a Marmot City and reducing inequalities for its citizens. It’s looking to change the face of assistance across the city and in the pilot, will include many locations and service providers in the city. We are hoping that the numbers of venues taking part will expand throughout the city in the coming months.

If you are a resident of Coventry or are going to be visiting the city centre over the next few months, you can benefit from using the app to request further assistance.

Once you have downloaded the app, have a look to see what services are available in the Coventry area. It is then a fairly simple process. A service provider will be able to receive your request and send their acknowledgement.

For more information regarding activities in Coventry community and transport options to promote choice, please visit the ‘Getting out and about’ section of Coventry City Council’s website here.

Why is the app unique?

The assist-Mi® app uses simple to use GPS technologies and two-way messaging, so service providers are ready for the disabled users’ arrival. Requests for assistance can all be made and accepted in real-time.

The service provider will understand the accessibility needs from a user’s personalised Mi-Profile™, so that you can arrive with full confidence that your individual requirements will be acknowledged.

The app also provides a directory of service providers, shops and offices that are accessible and can provide assistance. You can also find out about their accessibility arrangements and services offered.

assist-Mi’s unique features include:

  • Mi-Profile ™ – presenting users’ accessibility needs, enabling the service provider to change the assistance to suit the individual.
  • assist-Mi Messenger – enabling communication between user and service provider when requesting assistance.
  • Smart GPS Technology – alerting the service provider to the users’ arrival.
  • Accessibility features for simple app navigation.
