Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 15, 2014
The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) and Metro Atlanta Chamber recognizes Pariveda Solutions as a top finalist in the first ever Mobility Live Hack-Back Invitational. Pariveda Solutions placed second in the Hack-Back programming challenge for their mobile website developed for the Boys and Girls Club of America. The Technology Association of Georgia partnered with Mobility LIVE to host a month-long programming challenge benefiting three national nonprofits headquartered in Atlanta.
Pariveda selected The Boys and Girls Club as their Hack-Back charity due to their affection for and the impact of this outstanding philanthropic organization. Pariveda also selected BGCA due to similarities in both organizations' mission. Pariveda’s own mission is to develop employees to their fullest potential in their career while The Boys and Girls Club develops kids to their fullest potential in whatever they do.
Pariveda worked with BGCA to understand desired improvements to their online experience and to drive awareness and action by donors and at-risk boys and girls. BGCA wanted to make it easy for people to share their own success story, and how as a youth, BGCA had impacted their lives. Secondly, BGCA wanted make it easier for parents, mentors and the at-risk youth to find a club. Finally, BGCA wanted to simplify the donations page. Pariveda created a mobile website integrating with social media for the submission of success stories, improved the geolocation services so that it was simple to find a club and simplified the donations process.
“The project was very rewarding as we were able to give back to the community using skills that we usually take for granted day in and day out,” said Patrick Green, a Manager in the Atlanta Office. “With our work, we were able to show the Boys and Girls Clubs of America what possibilities there are in the technological arena.”
“The Atlanta office gives back to the surrounding community and this mobile website allows us to impact more people in the area," said Steve Cardwell, head of the Atlanta office. “The Boys and Girls Club needs their story told to a larger audience and a quality user experience can help this cause.”
