Introducing the Pledge Drive Tracker

Recently, we put the newly revised, Pledge Drive Tracker into production use for the first time. KUNC in Greeley, Colorado deserves a lot of credit for having the chutzpah for taking a chance on this new program... during a live pledge drive! They also offered input on a lot of refinements that made the program more useful, functional and visually appealing. Scott Williams from KJZZ also was generous with his expertise early on in the planning of this; as were the management and staff of KJZZ during it's earlier iteration and production use from 2002 until late 2009.

In the coming weeks, I will post more details on how you can sign up to use the app, how you can become a beta tester, and on lessons learned in the process of creating the app.

Here are some screen captures from the app as it was when it launched on January 28th, 2010.
