InspireHUB was born with a request from Nelson Mandela to assist him with a worthy project to help South Africa's children. Very quickly, the team discovered the following challenges that had to be overcome:
We began by researching the multiple collaboration tools in the marketplace only to uncover an array of mediocre solutions that never quite solved all our engagement challenges. We decided to focus on three specific engagement areas and build a tool that would allow us to specifically engage communities via social networking, elevate communications via mass notifications, and energize organizations via rapid platform deployments. It wasn't easy but our path ultimately led us to create what would become the IHUBApp. We became one of the first companies in the world to adopt "Progressive Web App Technology" (PWA) as the technology provided multiple solutions to our challenges including:
"Our path to discover solutions to fight email fatigue and to find ways to help drive engagement solved many problems being faced by organizations today," explains, Karolyn Hart. "Ultimately, we were looking to build a solution to help engage an entire country and we realized that we had created a solution that allowed organizations a better way and an easier way to engage their unique tribes."
From municipalities like the Town of Tecumseh and businesses like SpotSee Manufacturing, to community groups like the Boy Scouts of America and even better world scouts like Transformation Textiles as they change the lives of women from Egypt to Kenya, we've had the privilege of working alongside people as they leaned in to find better ways to connect, collaborate and inspire each of their collective tribes.
Being at the forefront of the intersection between technology and engagement provided us with unique insights into what helps to drive successful teams and inspire action. We were delighted to be invited to share our journey alongside the creators of PWA and other technology mavericks at this year's "Samsung Create" conference.
