These functions can be used by any mobile phone having SMS capability and additionally we developed an Android App and a Windows Phone App to accomplish the same. We used all the APIs available at Ideamart platform to develop this system.

That is about the product we built.


It was the most enjoyed hackathon ever. We had a great support from all the members in the ideamart team for the development of the product. Making a product which consumes four platform APIs at Dialog within one night is not an easy task. Great team effort and the technical support from Ideamart enabled us to complete this within a night.

We first focused on implementing and integrating the software components to access Dialog Ideamart network APIs. After the midnight we started developing android and windows apps while testing and debugging the initial base product which is TaxiBuddy coupled with Taxi ideamart app. It was a tough night in terms of coding, testing, debugging and we couldn’t sleep even a single minute which was optional during the Hackathon. We were that busy with implementing our solution but enjoyed coding at the Hackathon.
We had four presentations time to time. First we had the initial introduction at the beginning. Then one minute pitch at midnight to explain what we had done so far and what we had left to complete. And another one at 2.00 AM to explain the progress. And the final presentation was at the end of the Hackathon before the judges, which was a demo of the product we developed.

At that time we had a working live product which could be used by anyone who has a dialog phone. Yes additionally with two working smart phone apps TaxiBuddy for android and TaxiBuddy for windows phone.
When we did the presentations we focused only on explaining the essential facts and no fancy stuff because we had a very limited time for the presentation and we had lot of functionality to cover  We are delighted to say, we presented really well and we won the first place at the Hackathon.

Electronic club and Ideamart team did a great job with organizing this event including food and beverage, recreational area with games and a DJ. We enjoyed the event thoroughly and kudos to the organizers again.

Fortunaglobal and retail fashion power house Fashion Bug have launched a first of its kind in Sri Lanka – a multi channel iPhone and android app. The multi-functional app brings the entire gamut of app development to the proverbial fashion runway, with customers being able to browse Fashion Bug catalogues which are continuously linked and updated to all their outlets islandwide.
Fortunaglobal CEO, Suren Kohombange said, “We’re excited at the endless opportunities this app opens up for Fashion Bug. This sort of app is what users expect from a retailer’s mobile presence nowadays. The in-store crossover features and customer-appropriate feature-set, also means that Fashion Bug could genuinely interact with their customers. This seamless collaboration between lifestyle and retail experiences had presented Fortunaglobal with the ideal platform to propel the launch of this app without interfering with the existing operating structure of Fashion Bug.
The content is peppered with an innovative sliding image function, a state-of-the-art interface and glossy photos, which permits users to immerse themselves in each trend through a rich mix of content. A unique selling point of the app is that it allows users to easily track the location of the branches with the inbuilt GPS facility, an interactive feature that really sets it apart from regular app.”
Using Fortunaglobal’s expertise in delivering market-leading apps, Fashion Bug worked closely with Fortunaglobal to deliver an app which is also equipped with “Push Notifications,” where users could get promotional details and sale notifications to their devices without even opening the app.
Fashion Bug Asia (Pvt) Ltd., Director, Shabier Subian, added, “In an age of smart technology and social media, the text book advertising and the typical press-TV- radio combination does not quite cut it when it comes to advertising and brand building. Especially since we hail from the fashion industry, it is imperative that our communications are visual, while also prompting and yielding optimum customer engagement. We are making strides on Facebook and Fortunagobal has partnered with us in creating the Fashion Bugmobile App, just in time along with the smartphone boom here in Sri Lanka. We are the very first Fashion Retailer to launch an interactive interface such as this in Sri Lanka. Currently, more than 3,500 of our customers are connected with us via the app where they get daily updates on new arrivals and our promotions. The customer friendly layout does not intimidate the new smart-phone users. The store locater is also a regular favourite amongst our customers. The number of downloads are growing daily and we are looking forward to further innovations and enhancements from our trusted developers.”
Fortunaglobal is a leading technology based company in Sri Lanka, who is specialized in mobile technologies, software solutions and consultancy services.
