Qlarion was thrilled to participate in a hackathon hosted by our client, the City of Boston. The event is part of Hubhacks, Boston’s hackathon series that challenges local coders and technical innovators to tackle a pressing civic problem with a prototype application. This particular event addressed Permitting and Licensing, a process that can be confusing and slow for residents trying to improve their homes and business owners trying to launch or expand their businesses.
Robert Reynolds, one of Qlarion’s talented rising stars, teamed up with a few of our partners to build an app called “Permit Me Boston.” The app allows users, via a clean and easy-to-understand interface, to track where their permit or license application is in the process, who is reviewing it, and how long it will likely take to complete. “Permit Me Boston” was ultimately the winner of the “Best Design and Interface” category.
The hackathon clearly made an impression on Boston’s new CIO, who tweeted,
Robert’s contribution to the hackathon is just one example of how Qlarion goes above and beyond for our clients. We’re intently focused on driving results, improving efficiency, and helping our clients better serve their constituents.
