Non-profit Organization: Arziona Council of Economic Education
When we heard about the case about Elena Zee at ACEE, we thought the problem faced by her and her team could be solved and deserved an upgrade. The high impact of developing a solution would not only save time but increase data reliability going forward and the reporting would be appealing to potential donors. This moved us to go forward with the work.
What it does
Our solution drastically improves the presentation of data which was previously done manually in excel with tedious manual labor. With our solution, the customer will replace a plethora of work hours with our simple click and go design. Now we present the registered teachers informations sourced from constantcontact.com via an API GET request to gather details such as number of Highly qualified teachers and number of schools which provide reduced priced lunch. In addition, we also included the yearly teacher’s registration growth rate and the growth rate of schools participating in the program; plus many other logistic computations at a click of a button. It does not stop there, the user have the ability compare previous metrics to see the yearly performance of the organization.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Getting contact details from constantcontact.com was a big challenge since the data was spread across many spreadsheets and inconsistent.
Accomplishments that I’m proud of
We are able to deliver an application that is capable of reporting the data precisely and immensely fast delivery (approximately less than 1 seconds).
What I learned
Though it was easier for us to setup the new registration process through application we had to stick to the clients requirement, due to the constraint of wifi availability at the time of registration at the workshops, hence we let the client continue to leverage constantcontact.com to be the place to store the data and use our application for reporting.
What's next for Team 18 - ACEE
We wish to continue to contribute to all of Arizona Non-profit Organizations to help those that want to help other
