Medtronic launches global community in eight weeks!
Provide a simple online way of collecting nominations to make it easier for users in remote areas to learn of the program and submit nominations.
Allow users to submit profile images and photos of their charitable work along with their nomination form.
Provide a way to manage and review nominations, and promote the nominee’s stories online.
Provide a way for the nominees to connect with each other in a secure, online environment.
Allow nominees to submit their stories but still allow them to opt out of participating in the community.
Allow users to promote the Bakken Invitation through social channels and track how often the site and stories are shared so that the “shares” can be tied back to a donation amount in order to further encourage users to promote the site.
Leveraged Chatter Communities to create an online community that integrated a custom registration process with the online nomination form to gather info about users’ charitable work, to share their stories, and to give them the option of applying for the $20k grand for charity.
Using custom Visualforce pages and objects, Bakken is able to collect and track all of the story submissions, funnel them into a queue for review, provide a concise scoring methodology for grant submissions, and display all of the approved stories on an interactive global map open to public viewing and tied into one-click sharing on Facebook and Twitter.
Created an online community for patients to share how they are giving back after receiving extra life from a medical device.
Gives patients the opportunity to connect with people who share similar health conditions, geographies, and charitable passions.
Just one month after the site was launched, the Bakken Invitation received 148 stories and 79 grant applications from over 20 different countries.
Registered nominees are able to log into the site, find and view other nominees and communicate with them.
Ongoing managed services agreement for continued enhancements. Potential for new projects each year coinciding with each award year.
