MobileDonor Digital App for The Salvation Army on AWSDeveloping a new digital payments platform for non-proximity-based mobile, digital payments.

Business Overview:
Our client sponsored MobileDonor, an initiative by its client The Salvation Army, to increase the awareness and ease of Christmas Kettle donations across the local community. While a notoriously successful campaign, the kettles are proximity reliant and dependent on cash. The client sought to create a new digital payments platform for non-proximity-based mobile, digital payments to overcome these top two donation barriers.

Solution Approach:
Synechron drew upon its financial services expertise and extensive experience in payments and mobile development to conceptualize the end-to-end development of MobileDonor. Synechron took a multilayered architecture approach with an AWS backend and thick Android and iOS clients on the front-end for maximum stability and performance. An agile methodology was adopted, and the application was delivered through a series of sprints, including user registration, financial information, map functionality, and various add-ons. Functions includes easy payments, credit card uploads via camera enabled by optical-character recognition (OCR) and Natural Language Processing (NLP), and an API-integrated map of all Canadian kettles to allow for donations to 240+ Canadian communities.
