With our sponsored fund, the winning team of ASK IT Techathon 2021 started to work on the development of a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Booking App for Fullness Salon, a Social Enterprise. It’s the time to turn the idea to prototype.

At this stage, ASK IT has assigned an experienced Developer, Nick Chan as the students’ mentor to provide professional advises and timely support during the whole development process. It’s because we believe that giving money is not enough to help our young people, guidance and journey together will encourage them to work better with direction.

With Nick’s help, the team finished their product on time and had their final project presentation with product demonstration on 22 Apr 2022. The CRM application is quite completed which takes care of the needs of different stakeholders of a salon – customers, stylists and management (administrator) includes member registration, styling recommendation, shopping cart, hair stylist booking, customer management etc.

Cast back for half year ago, they are just students. Now we may call them Junior Developers having their 1st real product. Is it proud? Looking at those smiley faces, we know that ASK IT Techathon is doing something amazing in IT youth development and we should continually work on it.

The next ASK IT Techathon is coming soon. Let us know if you have an idea, we are pleased to invest in the IT talent development.
