Risks and challenges

Supply Chain and Manufacturing:
To create COVI we will be working with many highly skilled manufacturers from all over Germany. While the majority of these manufacturers we have worked with previously on Nuimo - there is always the possibility that a material or component is out of stock making for delays. We have built this potential issue into our initial timeline and are confident that it will not be a problem since we have back-up suppliers in Germany and abroad.

Certification:
We are in close contact with the Amazon Alexa team however we have not completed their certification process to date. Once we have created our first zero-series we will submit COVI to the Amazon Alexa team and they will check it to make sure that it meets their privacy, functionality and safety standards.

Integrations:
While building open source speeds up our development time significantly, we will still be checking each individual integration for quality and reliability before pulling it into the COVI app. This means that while many integrations are currently available, we will still be adding them individually to insure quality standards for our COVI users.
