Partnership with Wildlife Prairie Park

Blog, Business Education, Services

Wildlife Prairie Park is a fun, educational place to take a field trip, family outing, and more! This park has so much to offer the community and AppsCo wants to help. Over the past couple months, we have been working on creating a partnership with Wildlife Prairie Park in hopes that we can build them a custom app. With several meetings under our belt, they have officially signed on to work with us. Over the summer we plan to work diligently to create them the best app possible. There is so much to learn within the park, having an app will make it even easier to do so and more engaging for kids!

Even though this partnership is just beginning, I think we have both benefitted from it already. Our sales team got to practice negotiating a deal with a big business, out tech team was able to meet their lead technical employee and engage in conversations with him, and out multi-media team got to take some amazing pictures of the animals that they have!

It is especially profitable being able to work with Wildlife Prairie Park because they are also a nonprofit company. It is amazing seeing how well their company is run. Over the course of this new relationship, all of our students will get to learn even more about nonprofits and how they reach out and effect the community.

This app will be so much fun to work on because as we further on with the development, we will be able to work directly from the park! Engaging with park members on how to use the app will be such a rewarding part of the process. I can’t wait to see how our team takes something so near and dear to the communities heart and improves it!
