We hear often the term "there will be an app for that" and most people are very familiar with going to their smartphone and downloading any number of free applications that make their life better. What about companies spotting the opportunity to develop software themselves and improve business outcomes as a result? There is a lot more of this happening in our sunshine-laden town and we have 3 examples to talk about in February.

Includes a light lunch sponsored by Montage Online.

Speaker 2 - Andrew Board (Nelson Weekly)

Nelson App: The story behind the story

Nelson App is owned by the publishers of Nelson Weekly newspaper. As a media company they saw the need to find a digital option for their business but, like many in the industry, were struggling to find a solution that was financially sustainable. Enter community application Nelson App.

Andrew is the editor of Nelson Weeklies and will talk about how he came to develop an app, their journey from the newspaper to a news website and now to the app. How we've found success in it and the challenges encountered along the way. Also an interesting insight about expansion of the app throughout the rest of the country.
