The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. (JLA) is an organization of women, committed to making lasting transformation in the Atlanta community. Their 100 year legacy of leadership is built on our ability to train women leaders to tackle tough issues impacting women and children. The JLA provides a strong foundation for civic leadership and also connects women who share a commitment to voluntarism and community transformation.
Tour of Kitchens
GSS worked with the JLA for the better part of a year to plan, design, develop, and execute a next-level, interactive mobile app for their long-standing Tour of Kitchens (TOK) fundraising event in the metro Atlanta area. The application was developed to guide patrons of the event using integrated map services to guide the home tour using Google Maps and plot point projections, as well as providing general information updates and push-notifications for up-to-the-minute announcements during the event.
Taking things a step further, JLA’s event committee wanted to integrate their kickoff event silent auction to enable mobile bidding through the app. GSS used a third-party silent auction management system, ClickBid, to serve as the auction platform, and seamlessly integrated the interface (API), building a custom plugin for the application to meet this requirement.
Women’s Leadership Forum
While working with the Tour of Kitchens committee on the aforementioned app, GSS also worked with a separate committee to design and develop a one-day conference event app for the annual Women’s Leadership Forum (WLF) in Atlanta. The app was developed to provide logistic information (e.g., travel directions, floor plans, conference room maps, and session schedules) for attendees, as well as profiles and biographical information on the 30+ guest speaker list.
