Escape Game kiosks helping to create efficiency with customers

The Escape Game is quickly becoming America’s favorite real-life, puzzle-solving experience, with a variety of platforms for thrill-seekers to choose from. The popularity of the escape room phenomenon has been exploding over the past couple of years now. In 2014, there were only 22 escape rooms in America. Now, that number has eclipsed to over 2,000, including three Escape Game locations in the Nashville area. Escape Game seems to have laid claim as the most popular escape room company across the United States Even with three, the sites all get a heavy barrage of visitors looking to test their wits and nerves as they try to work together to complete the objective assigned to them. To combat the large crowds, the Escape Game at Opry Mills have installed kiosks outside their location, helping cement that they might not be just the most popular escape room company, but also the most...

Bird Is or Isn't The Word?

There have been many conversations in Nashville recently about how to improve our public transportation system to meet the needs of our growing population. Perhaps you have noticed in the past couple of months an influx of men and women flying around the downtown area on electrical scooters. This new form of transportation was one solution offered by a company called Bird. The company was founded in 2017, and its main vision was to provide a shared transportation system that was environmentally friendly, user friendly, and friendly on the rider’s wallet.   A Bird scooter is the ideal mode of transportation for a person who needs to get to a place that might be too far to walk, yet too close to call a Lyft or an Uber. The user simply downloads the Bird app on his or her smartphone, which pulls up a map locating the closest Bird scooters that are available to ride. After finding a, ...

We're Moving!

We’re moving! We are a little sentimental about leaving our beloved office space at the historic Berger building; however, with the ongoing success and growth at DevDigital, we need a bigger space to reach the needs of our team and our clients. The Berger Building is a historic landmark on Rosa L. Parks Blvd. in downtown Nashville and has been operating as a space for local businesses to operate since 1926. In 2012, we felt very fortunate to move into a building that is on the list of the National Register of Historic Places. At that time, we had only six employees and had not yet discovered the potential of the basement space below (if you’ve attended a DevDigital party, you’ve surely checked out the “best kept secret party room” in Nashville.) Speaking of the “best kept secret party room” in Nashville, in the past six years we have hosted TONS of celebrations and emptied hundreds of...

DevDigital's Work Enables Automatic Billing For Smartphones

We were thrilled to work with Time Miner to launch their app that is revolutionizing the way professionals bill their clients for their time used with a smartphone to talk and to text. Before this app, professional would have to go through the time-consuming process of billing by making notes with pencil and paper, scrolling through phone records, and recalling phone conversations and text messages by memory to keep up with billable time.  Sean Martin and Pierce Schubert had a vision to create an app that is not only easy to use, but also functional for the users. We were honored to work with them to achieve their goal. It is no surprise to us at DevDigital that they were honored at the ABA Techshow in Chicago and voted as one of the top three legal technology startups!   https://www.bizjournals.com/businesswire/press_releases/2018/04/24/20180424005057   Time Miner launches first of...

Facebook Data Leak and GDPR

Last month, the social media giant, Facebook, notified 87 million of its users that their personal data had been breached. These users personal information was accessed by Cambridge Analytica, a data-mining firm. Their plan of attack was through the use of a third-party quiz app to gain personal information about Facebook users in an effort to build psychological profiles to target voters with political ads. Facebook is now responding to this unfortunate breach in security by providing their users with the information that the third-party apps are using and how to delete them. To prevent this catastrophic leak of personal data from happening again, the European Union is putting forth a piece of legislation that could have a big impact on some of the biggest technology firms, Google and Facebook. This piece of legislation titled the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) was approved...

Client Spotlight - Bourbon Street Blues & Boogie Bar

What is the Bourbon Street Reservation System? The Bourbon Street Blues Reservation System is a web based app that enables Bourbon Street Blues guests to make automated seat reservations for specific seats during specific time periods. Prior to creating the Reservation System, guests were filling out a contact form on the Bourbon Street Blues website requesting specific times and seats. A manager was then responding to each email individually and either letting each guest know that "Yes, their reservation is confirmed" or "No, the seats and times requested were not available.” When a seat was not available, there was a lot of back and forth with the guest trying to find different seating or times. The process was very time consuming; our manager was probably spending 20-25 hours per week (7 days a week) just responding to reservation emails. Bourbon Street Blues did a lot of research...

Data Madness

  Around a quarter of Americans fill out a NCAA March Madness bracket to be a part of the exciting college basketball tournament. However, the average American is not necessarily an expert in predicting the outcome of games. How could one predict that No. 3 Tennessee Vols would lose to a No. 11 team in the last seconds and not even make it to the Sweet Sixteen?! Most will rely on the following when completing a bracket: choose their favorite teams, choose the team with players they enjoy to watch, or choose a team based on their national ranking going into the tournament. Although your bracket may already be busted, there is some technology that you can lean on next year to help you have the winning bracket amongst your family, friends, and colleagues!   This year, Adobe launched #HackTheBracket to give March Madness participants a free tool to help them predict the winners of each...
