Mobile App Project
Aidmatrix currently provides an Online Auction Module to a community of nonprofits
in the US. This solution is a web-based application that enables associations or
networks of NGOs to make donations available in a “silent sealed-bid auction” to
its members (also known as a “blind auction,” or “open ascending bid auction”).
It is based on a point system, where members are given points and then use those
points to bid and exchange for available products in the auction. It empowers the
association to determine as a group how to best allocate donations and also encourages
the members to generate local donations and make them available to members across
the association. The result: more humanitarian relief gets delivered to member organizations,
thus helping more people-in-need.
The Online Auction solution is currently used daily to help move millions of pounds
of relief products in the US each week. The users of this system would like to be
able to utilize their smart phones to access the solution and perform a number of
• View Current Auctions
• View Details
• View Upcoming Auctions Session
• Bids Won Report
• Bids Lost Report
The users are requesting this functionality as they often have to stop their current
activity to go bid on an auction at their desk. This disruption makes them less
efficient and effective in their daily efforts to provide relief. In addition, these
users are already getting email alerts from the system on their phone so they see
the power of smart phones to address this issue.
We feel that this smart-phone enabling is a great project for a We Are Microsoft
Project as it can leverage and existing screen shoots and sample database scheme.
This should enable the creation of the smart phone web pages in a rapid timeframe.
In addition, the team working on the development of these pages would be able to
see their efforts applied in a unique humanitarian effort that makes a daily benefit
to millions of people.
