The best way to test your own app is to use it for practical experiences in the real world. To that end, we gave our little old productivity tool a run for its money yesterday, coordinating some environmental outings as an ode to our lovely mother earth, on her special day.
We quickly created a group with our own employees and various other participants, sharing admin privileges, so members of the group could invite other people. Sure enough, when it came time to meet at a nearby beach to do some general cleanup, an in-app message and subsequent push notification sent a link with driving directions to all the members of the group. There was also a note about needing to dress warm because Spring has not really sprung in the Northeast yet, and another about needing boots to navigate the marshes at low tide.
Not only was the outing a success and an affirmation of the mobile handiness deets provides for quickly mobilizing and communicating the right information with the right people, we didn’t waste a single shred of paper communicating. Happy Earth Day!
