Sustainability Mobility CloudApps SuMo: The Way Appcelerator Titanium is Helping Save the World
Developed through Appcelerator Titanium, CloudApps SuMo is an application designed to improve sustainability in a company, saving both money and the environment with proven efficacy. The app, available on the iPhone and iPad, brings together elements of social networking, game mechanics and sustainability to help companies achieve their sustainability goals. SuMo (Sustainability Momentum) provides a game-like interface to allow competition between employees to compare their sustainability level. The app provides each user with an experience bar that shows their progress towards advancing to the next level, their current level, and their rank relative to others. Users receive points and experience for actions such as replacing fluorescent light bulbs with LEDs. The app also provides badges as rewards for accomplishing specific sustainability goals. Though the application places emphasis on comparing peers with similar job roles, it also allows users to make connections and follow specific colleagues.
The application tracks the user’s activity to ensure that their current pattern of actions is aligned with goals for the month or if the user needs to change their ways in order to meet their goals. It also includes an RSS feed which updates the user on the activities and accomplishments of their peers; this public announcement drives users to compare themselves to one another and go above and beyond their sustainability goals to compete with one another. But the app does more than record and compare; it actively offers suggestions about how to change your habits or take particular actions to improve sustainability.
