Wildcat Software created a new mobile app for the Department of Theatre that elevates the experience of ticket-purchasing, brochure play access and communication during the theatrical season.
Nik Grau, CEO of Wildcat Software, said development on the app has been in progress since the summer.
“ACU Theatre came to us in the summer looking to improve audience engagement through a new mobile app,” Grau said.
Wildcat Software is the College of Business Administration’s student-run software company. Student developers employed by Wildcat Software are afforded the opportunity to work for real clients on a variety of software projects, including mobile application and website development.
The mobile app, ACU Theatre, is free and allow a user to access theatre’s season brochure of plays, view each show individually and purchase individual or season tickets directly. Users also contact the theatre department directly from app.
Brandon DeLano, software developer in the School of Information Technology and Computing, works alongside Grau and the Wildcat Software team, and together they create information systems for a variety of companies across the nation.
“Wildcat Software is a great place for students to gain real life experience with developing mobile apps, information systems and more for companies all across the nation,” Grau said.
In the past, Wildcat Software has been hired by companies like Gift Clarity, which hired the student-run company to develop an internal application for their clients to track past and present donors. The software allows clients to foster stronger client/donor relationships, increasing communication and granting a deeper level of personal interaction.
