Relnos

September 8, 2017

Relnos is a platform with the motive of informing students about the different events happening on or near campus. By helping students to keep track of upcoming events, this helps the campus to become a more fun and engaging place.

The team was made of a mix of Business Information Technology and Business Technology Management students. On this project, were tasked with creating a tool that can act as a singular communication channel to receive information on upcoming student events. Additionally, it helps to bridge the gaps in collaboration between student clubs and different engagement points. This helps student users to not miss out on great opportunities.

Event hosts can: create events for students and analyze events. Student users can: rsvp to events, submit payment for events, receive reminders about events of interest, and receive news about all events on and near campus.

Midway through the project term, the student sponsors of Relnos presented their ideas and progress at the North Forge Ramp Up Weekend 10, in June 2017.

Tooliaba

September 8, 2017

Tool Search Screen Tool Rental ScreenThe concept behind Tooliaba is to provide a platform for individuals to rent tools that they own to other individuals who are looking for tools to rent. For many individuals, when they need a tool, it isn’t always worth the investment to purchase a tool they will only use for a short while. While individuals who own tools may not use them most of the time. This service would connect these different users together.

On Tooliaba, users could rent their own tools to others and earn extra income, or they could rent somebody else’s tools. As this is a peer to peer model, renting tools this way can be convenient based off of location and price. For peace of mind for the customer and renter, insurance is built into the site as well.

Over the project term, the students developed a minimum viable product that demonstrates proof of concept.

Technologies used: PHP, Javascript, JQuery, Bootstrap, Auth0, Git, CodeIgniter, Digital Ocean, SQL.

Penguin & Stone – Part 2

June 26, 2017

Penguin + Stone

Prior to this project, potential vendors had to email staff with products or services they wished to sell and staff had to enter data manually into their online store as vendors have no way of registering with the website or tracking their sales or products/services.

Vendors can now register an account with Penguin & Stone online. An easy to use electronic form was created for submitting products/services with Penguin and Stone which now allows for all products/services to be uploaded into the online store automatically with portals to view their products/services and orders.

CanU Canada

June 17, 2017

Currently CanU does all their attendance tracking through paperwork and excel spread sheets. This is not only time consuming but can also create error due to misprint in data. Every day after each program, their coordinator has to manually input all attendance for the day into Excel.

Three BTM students developed a custom app in Salesforce for the tracking and updating of users attendance. The application also automatically enrolls students into programs. Users are able to assign students to teams and buses for better organization and reports. Users can query who is on what team and what bus at all times. A complete and customized Salesforce experience for CanU to use. This will reduce downtime and increase accuracy of attendance tracking.
