Mobile Apps are making businesses more efficient in many different ways. We recently worked with Halloween On Ionia 2013, Grand Rapids largest Halloween party. This event featured a Halloween costume contest that gave away $5,000 in prize money. We were contacted by them in regards to building a mobile app that would make their event run smoothly for event voting.
The event voting was strictly limited to mobile, no pen or paper submissions. So, Grand Apps built them a simple voting platform that utilized live number tracking. Every hour required live results to pick a winner every hour for five hours. This event had over 10,000 submissions on the mobile app voting platform and worked perfectly. The HOI2013 mobile app saved tons of tress by allowing users to vote on the mobile device. HOI2013 also utilized our Push Notification system by sending out live updates throughout the event. Every app user got updates when to vote, hourly winners and more exclusive updates.
If you have an annual event, chances are that a mobile app can benefit you by helping your event run smoothly. Here is a list of some other app features we included.
