This one was a rather typical request received from the then CTO of a US based company. They wanted us to build a mobile app that her team would use during the CEB Career Fair for capturing educational & contact details of college undergrads. A team from CEB, every quarter, visits various US colleges for campus recruitment.
The Issue that the CTO pointed out was that there might me some Universities in some remote location where they might not get a network coverage. She did not want to pester the college undergrads again and again for their data. Rather, she wanted a solution that would help her get the data irrespective of the network connection.
We developed a fully functional iPad & iPhone app within a week that was used during the Career Fair to capture student information on mobile devices.
