IUSSTF wanted an unconventional alumni portal that not only connected the alumni community but also enabled learned discourses amongst the community, exploration of opportunities. The objective was to create a virtual-seamless network of IUSSTF stakeholders across India and the United States. The portal was named Sparks.
Sparks is a feature rich portal that caters to a huge database. Every little detail like networking, events, groups, announcements and discussion forums demanded acute attention so that the end product emerges as a one stop platform of all networking requirements for the stakeholders.
The strategy was to make the platform easy to use for both internal and external public and enables smooth interaction. A perfect blend of functionality and aesthetics was maintained while developing the portal.
Sparks played a significant role in transcending the geographical barriers to connect and build an academia of scientists, engineers & entrepreneurs. It also helped IUSSTF to re-establish and re-affirm their ties with their valued patrons.
