From streamlining the dining experience to changing the way families care for ailing loved ones, the Spring MIS Capstone Showcase demonstrated the transformative impact of technology. On April 24th, 2018, nine teams of seniors from three classes, as selected by their professors, presented their final projects. These projects were the culmination of a semester (and four years) of hard work, which involved everything from creating a business plan to designing a functional prototype.
The winning team, which was selected by a panel of industry experts and Temple faculty, designed an application geared toward urbanites looking for an enjoyable night out. The app uses real-time data to give insight into the crowd and experience at a given location, while also acting as a marketing tool for bar owners. Mentored by Sondra Barbour, Member of the Board of Directors at 3M, Bridgette Brodnyan, Sean Dougherty, Kevin Lynch, and Marlea Tremper received a $500 prize.
