My mom has just recently started a new job at a charity organization that helps children on the spectrum. One of her first challenges as manager there, was to understand and prioritize the work of the drivers that are assigned to collect donation boxes. There are currently thousands of boxes spread throughout the country, and to add to the challenge - not all the locations are documented. Building a database of this dimension, while assigning drivers tasks specific for arising needs, and simultaneously translating these collections to useful data for management has been our inspiration to build this app.
What it does
This app Helps charity organizations to collect their donation boxes, organizes tasks for drivers that need to collect them and gives the managers tools to understand which locations are profitable and which are not and therefore are not worth sending a driver to.
How I built it
We built the app using Quickbase.
Challenges I ran into
It was challenging quickly building a working app that a low-cost organization can use, that will be simple enough for easy access on-the-go.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are proud to say that we overcame these challenges and believe this app can indeed be useful for many charity organizations worldwide that help those in need.
What I learned
We have learned how to work efficiently with Quickbase.
What's next for Donation Boxes Collectors
Real trials and improvement of the app through feedback from different parts of the organization (drivers, management etc.)
