Ateknea helps Widget 3.0 to make charity donations easy and safe

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-based company, Worldcoo, has developed a new generation of their system which allows e-commerce users to easily and safely donate to charities and non-profits 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.
