Ateknea helps Widget 3.0 to make charity donation in and easy and safe way

We are happy to announce that our participation in the project Widget 3.0 is coming to a successful close. Within the framework of this project, the Barcelona company Worldcoo has developed the new generation of their system which allows e-commerce users to donate to charities and non-profits easily and safely anytime they buy something online.

As part of this project our Software Department developed three modules:

  • A Data Warehouse system that captures, pre-processes and stores all the activity of the platform.
  • A Business Intelligence system that optimizes the ratio of transactions that end in donation, recommending projects, amounts and visualizations based on the buyer profile.
  • An SDK that allows a third party to integrate the Widget 3.0 system into their mobile applications.
