Organizers for the Midwest Technology Leaders annual symposium, the ultimate destination for bringing together the Midwest’s best and brightest in the technology industry, tapped Logic Solutions, Inc. of Ann Arbor, Michigan to develop a mobile web interface for the 2010 event. Smartphone users can view the application on their mobile browsers at http://www.midwesttechnologyleaders.com.
The application uses WAP (Wireless Access Protocol), an interface that is accessible over a mobile browser and does not require any component be downloaded. Midwest Technology Leaders (MTL) chose to use their home page URL as the application’s address, rather than creating a new subpage of the website. Logic set up a “sniffer” on the parent website to detect when a mobile device requests the home URL. This activates the new interface, which is easily viewed on any Smartphone, including iPhone, Droid, BlackBerry, and Windows Mobile products.
MTL customized the information available on the application to include a symposium agenda, biographies of the executive board members, descriptions of event partners, and venue details. Logic’s designers branded the interface to MTL’s specifications.
Logic’s mobile development experts completed the application work in just one week. Curtis Daneker, from MTL creators Arzika LLC, states, “We are really trying to separate our events from the rest. Logic Solutions has developed the tool to help us in that journey.”
Site visitors and attendees can expect a rich experience using the application, as Logic will add event updates to the interface in the weeks approaching the symposium date, May 26, 2010.
Logic Solutions is a proud sponsor of the Midwest Technology Leaders 2010 symposium.
