The goal of this project was to develop a system which would be used by athletes as part of their extra curriculum activities in the school.
This activity works in the following manner; The athletes go out for selling products like cookies or popcorn and raise funds through the sales. These products are at discounted rates and that benefits both, customers and the athletes.
The system which we developed supported the athletes to enter their sales date, view statistics/leaderboard, verify sales and much more which converted all the manual work into an automated process. The athletes also raised more than 2 million dollars in just 6 months period.
The athletes can enter the quantity of products sold for each customer. Also, what payment method was used; Cash, cheque or card.
The app fetches the current location of the user whenever they add a new sale. This location then adds a pin to the map and other athletes can see this pin and decide wisely whether they should go to that place or not in order to save time or raise funds much more quickly.
There are athletes who have contacts of people who would buy the products even being miles away from the athlete. Scoreboard app has a unique feature where the athletes can share a link to those customers and they can purchase it from their location. The products are then delivered in 2 weeks time.
There are a few checkpoints between each fundraiser along with a target which the athletes need to achieve. If the targets are achieved then they get rewarded with exciting gifts. Example: Bag pack, hoodie or even cash amount.
There are many athletes participating in each fundraiser. In order for them to stay motivated, a leaderboard displays the top athletes with quantity sold and amount raised.
There are 2 more types of fundraisers; Donation fundraiser which is used to raise funds but there are no products exchanged. EZ Pay fundraisers is used by athletes who do not have a smartphone and all their sales are entered by their coach.
This is an internal application of Cerdonis Technologies, LLC. We are glad to say that our app has helped more than 15,000 fund-raising campaigns, with transactions clocked in worth $20M in just 1.5 years!
