Compuware Corp. (NASDAQ: CPWR) said it has announced the conclusion of the Mobile App Challenge at Detroit Catholic Central High School in Novi, Michigan.
DirectriX–composed of Michael Ryan, Andre Hijaouy, Shaun Hannibal, Jack Evans and August Butzke and mentored by Compuware professionals–presented the winning concept to the judging panel.
DirectriX was one of five teams that completed the Challenge. In recognition of their efforts, all participating students were awarded summer internships at Compuware world headquarters in Detroit.
The winning mobile app idea, named “Community Connection,” helps volunteers discover, engage in and track their volunteer experiences. The design features a mapping device to quickly locate the volunteer opportunity, the ability to create a user profile and track volunteer hours, and a mechanism for obtaining an electronic signature from the non-profit agency to verify community service.
The objective of the “Community Connection” app is to increase the number of people who volunteer by making the experience easy and enjoyable. DirectriX beat out worthy entries from classmates, including a mobile app solution to improve doctor efficiency in checking patient status and an app to help users organize their social media channels.
