OrdrIT

Summary

Most of us have waited in some kind of line at some point or another. In some situations, it is unavoidable. But we believe that if you are paying 60 bucks to attend a sporting event, you should not have to miss any of the game to wait in line for a beer or hot dog. Our app “OrdrIT” eliminates lines at concession stands.

The average amount of time it takes to order concessions, have your order filled and then finally pay takes about 50 seconds to one minute. So each person you tack on to the line adds another minute to your wait in line and is another minute you’re not watching the game.

Our app allows you to choose your food and pay for it right from your seat. Then you get two options. The first is to have your food delivered right to your seat so you would literally not miss one second of the action or you could choose to be alerted when your order is filled and then you can go pick it up at an express lane.

OrdrIT was created with ease of use and intuitiveness kept in mind throughout the entire design process. It’s very simple. Once launching the app, the end-user will be prompted to select which venue they are at or the app will locate which venue they are currently at using the phone’s location services (if enabled). Next, the end-user is prompted to select from the variety of concession offerings at that particular venue. The end-user then simply chooses what food they would like and adds their selections to their “cart.” The end-user can then “checkout” and pay with a credit/debit card (saved in their OrdrIT account for easy one-click payment) or with a university student card (if they’re at a university sporting arena, ie. Syracuse University’s Carrier Dome). The enduser’s order is then sent to the concession stand to be fulfilled and ready for pick-up or delivery. The end-user will be notified once their order is ready. It’s fast, simple, and easy for both the end-user and the venue to use.

PaceBook

Summary

PaceBook is the one stop app for Pace University students at the NYC campus to trade, buy, and sell books that you don't need anymore. It's easy, simple, and our services are free. Using PaceBook is the best ways to get expensive books for discount prices by your peers.

The user submits form based on the need. After the forms are submitted they are complied into an excel spreadsheet. Suppose John Doe wanted to trade book A for book B. John would fill out the trade form and the book info, his name, and email would be sent to me. Suppose that Jane Doe has book B (the book that John Doe wants), but wants book A (the book John Doe has). Jane and John can make a trade. When there is a match within our database of forms. Both parties will be contatced and told that a trade can be made. They will get the other persons name and email. Basically, the app brings the people together to be better off. Buying and Selling works in the same way. Textbooks are expensive, flyers are inefficient within campus, and there are no other sites that are as easy. PaceBook is easy to use, simple, and free.

The apps design is relatively simple and it is user friednly. It is effective and a great way for students on the NYC campus to trade, buy, and sell their books.

Seamless Messaging

Summary

Right now when a user picks up their phone to send a message to another person they have to make a few choices. They have to decide if they want to send the message by using the phones built in SMS application or by one using one of their other messaging applications, such as Google Talk or Facebook Messaging. If they chose to use another messaging app they have to deal with the hassle of seeing which if any messaging service the recipient is signed into. If then they do start a conversation using anything other than SMS and either person loses internet connectivity, the thread of the conversation is lost and they are forced to switch to basic SMS to continue it. This means that a single conversation could be split up into multiple messaging applications and becomes impossible and frustrating to follow.

Seamless Messagingis an Android specific messaging application that takes away the hassle of juggling multiple messaging applications and combines them all into one simplified stream.

This allows for fast paced IM type conversations when internet connectivity is available and dependable SMS messaging for when it is not.

Seamless Messaging takes the built in Android messaging client and updates it to where it should already be today. One simplified user experience for sending and receiving any and all text based messages, no hassle and no confusion.
