Utilizing its global presence to augment its initiative to foster technology forward, Kellton Tech has sponsored and developed the Indian Institutes of Technology – Global Leadership Conference 2015 (IIT GLC 2015) mobile app for both iOS and Android platforms. The app has been developed pro-bono for the event that started in Santa Clara, CA, USA on the 23rd of July. The event that would continue till the 25th July and is being attended by over 4000 attendees. Interestingly, it is one of the world’s first iBeacon powered conference apps that will be supporting a conference having a massive number of attendees.

The conference, organized by PanIIT Inc. – a US based not-for-profit organization, aims to connect thousands of IITians scattered globally, discuss what is hot and happening in the circuit and celebrate their success on an annual basis. Though networking is the heart of the event, great emphasis is also laid upon generating innovative ideas to conceive the future roadmap of technology. Besides being official App sponsor, Kellton Tech is also one of the silver sponsors of the event. Google, Deloitte, Amazon, Flipkart, Accenture etc. are some of the other sponsors.

The app developed exclusively for the conference is an attempt to leverage networking through mobile - before, during and after the event. Apart from facilitating networking between the attendees, the app also features a number of unique and interesting functionalities. It allows users to follow their favorite attendees and track their fellow class mates. It enables real-time notifications by the use of beacon proximity. With the help of the app, users can shoot their questions in real-time to the selected panel of speakers and also vote for their peers for best questions in each panel.

The app also helps users remain informed about important announcements and sessions based on their interest. Bookmarking and saving sessions in users’ calendar is another feature of the app. This feature helps the users plan their schedule ahead of time. A great functionality that the mobile app provides is instant messaging, i.e. users can chat with fellow attendees or class-mates using the app. Needless to say, IIT GLC mobile app is tailor-made to provide seamless integration with social media to facilitate social sharing along with other innovative features.

One of the most popular features of the app is a Real Time iBeacon based Scavenger Hunt game that will be played live at the conference venue. The winners would be awarded attractive prizes. Built upon Kellton Tech’s KLGAME Platform, Scavenger Hunt is a true convergence of Mobile, Location, Gamification and Push Notification technologies into a single engaging functional application.
