Bespoke Event Platform Web Development
A close collaboration with the Newcastle University School of Business, throughout design, development and testing.
Newcastle University’s aim is to expand fields of research and academic excellence, and redefine the future of society and business.
Komodo were selected from a competitive tender process to help design and develop a bespoke event management solution for the University to utilise internally and as a platform to generate revenue through externally hosted events on campus.
The existing solution used by the Newcastle University team relies on handheld devices for audience participation and no way to manage or showcase upcoming events.
We were asked to create a cost-effective platform to support the University with creating, managing and marketing their own events as well as 3rd party events hosted at Univeristy buildings.
What we designed and built was an intuitive user events portal and versatile admin portal for event and user management. With this new platform, codenamed ‘Engage’, the University is able to drastically cut their event hosting costs whilst create a new avenue for revenue generation my attracting future events to the business using ‘Engage’ as a USP.
Newcastle University’s future plans for the product include white labelled deployments for Universities across the UK and Europe.
