What does GroupTiv do?
Allows groups to communicate in a structured way, on mobile.
GroupTiv is an mobile app that allows private and public groups to communicate in a structured way. Group member can find information easily in the group home page that contain "posts" of different data types (tables, polls, text, images).
Posts are displayed in the order of importance decided by the group owners - most important on top. Members will find it easy to retrieve information from the group homepage.
Interaction is possible via poll responses, comments on posts, and general group chat. Group admins can send push notifications to members for urgent matters.
The gap in existing technology
Most groups just use a chat app to collaborate. Chat apps are a unstructured flow of information. Users may have to go through many unrelated messages to find a piece of information.
Facebook groups has a lot of good features, but the user interface is too cluttered. And a lot of people don't use Facebook.
Other team apps exist, most too rigid.
Groups that have regular activities and thus a need to make announcements, collect information from members, and to share information. For example:
- Parent Groups
- Sports Teams/Clubs
- Alumni Associations
- Organizing Committees
- Project Teams
- Sales Teams
MVP (version 1)
Version 1 MVP should test the following:
- That the mechanism to create and maintain groups is smooth and frictionless
- That Users do understand the full value of GroupTiv, even though some post types are still under development.
- That some users are willing to create groups and invite others to join.
