Eliminating Manual Workflow
SEVA is an international NPO which provides various services to community. They are facing a challenge matching volunteers to events / tasks. They want to automate the way they collect information for help and distribute tasks among volunteers.
What it does
Our Solution provides
- A convenient way to register for an event or ask for help
- A better way to distribute tasks among volunteers
- Makes it easy to track and analyze the progress of volunteer efforts
- By matching relevant tasks to volunteer, we are trying to improve volunteer satisfaction and hence retention.
How we built it
We developed a mobile app and web dashboard which can be used by people who need help as well as volunteers. The back-end: A cloud service stores the data and is responsible for distribution of relevant tasks to volunteers. We have used iOS for the mobile app, Java Spring and Heroku for the back end and Invision for the app design.
Challenges we ran into
The biggest challenge is to put various use-cases in a simple framework since SEWA works in wide array of domains and each domain has a specific functionality.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Our app helps prevent a tedious manual matching process from the organizers at SEWA and helps those seeking assistance.
