Application for How Women Work
Purpose – To build an online community that is interactive and accessible; and to replace the print
materials like delegate bags, voucher booklets and magazines at future HWW conferences.
The application should be designed to function on iOS and Android phones and tablets; with multi user access and low bandwidth requirement.
We basically want the website and the app to be the ‘home’ of all information re HWW. All other channels, like newsletter, social media, etc, should always link back to the website and the app. When people look for the website on their phone or tablet, it should offer them to sign up for the app.
We have a designer and we provide all the aesthetics and the content in whatever form you need. We need you to take care of the technological side – to build the app in such a way that it can later be expanded to include other functionalities, that we have a solid base to build on. We need to be able to do simple updates ourselves. Something equivalent to Wordpress or Squarespace for a website that allows a lay person to do updates. We need most of it to be freely available to anyone and then have an extra part that is for registered participants only.
