InspireHUB is the creator of the IHUBApp™, an award-winning Digital Experience Platform that has been described as a 'game-changer'.
Would you be impressed if you could build an entire app from beginning to launch in 3 months?
Now imagine that same app included next-gen automation tools, sophisticated registration options, notification management, etc.
Now imagine you could do all that in 3 hours.
That's what we created!
How did we do that?
History and the manufacturing process inspired us when we considered that a completed car rolled off the production line every 3 minutes. What if we could do something similar for our customers?
Most customers want to focus on the content and driving engagement with customers. Yet, most software solutions have them figuring out where to put menus and buttons. Imagine being excited to drive your call but being asked where you would like the gas tank to be situated?
That's not the best use of anyone's time. The result? An award-winning, patent-pending technology that is changing how customers engage.
How do we compete against what's already in the marketplace?
That's like asking how the automobile competed against horses. We realize that's a pretty bold claim, but there's a reason we are patent pending. There's also a reason our customers are getting results such as 195% increased engagement with an 80% decrease in hours spent.
We think that's why we've been called a 'game-changer' and it makes us smile, because that was always the point.
What is the IHUBApp?
The IHUBApp™ reduces the risk of missing critical information and allows you to build solutions that are personal, accessible, and most importantly, secure. Our proprietary suite of tools will elevate your digital experience above the noise.
InspireHUB was born with a request from Nelson Mandela to assist him with a worthy project to help South Africa's children. A group of international technologists came together with the idea of creating a country-wide platform that would provide charities with the most-effective way to communicate their worthy missions to engage funding for themselves while providing a tool that would allow everyone to be educated on the pediatric healthcare crisis. The original goals included:
Easy for Non-Technical Users
How do we make it so easy to use that non-technical individuals can manage the tool?
Security with Flexibility
How do we find a balance between the lack of security around of open-source solutions and the inaccessibility of closed-source solutions?
Reduce Donor & Email Fatigue
How do we overcome donor fatigue and the associated email fatigue that is plaguing worthy fundraising campaigns?
How do we leverage intelligent technology that will automatically enable everything needed?
Affordable Data Costs
How do we ensure the data costs are not burdensome to cell phone users?
Internal & External Communications Needs
How do we manage both internal confidential communication needs and external messaging simultaneously?
How will we create tools that people will actually engage with and use?
How do we leverage a mobile "app" solution when most of the country is not using smartphones?
We began by researching the multiple collaboration tools in the marketplace only to uncover an array of mediocre (and complex) solutions that never quite solved all our engagement challenges. We ended up adopting new technologies and created a completely different approach for our clients that ended up in the creations of the IHUBApp Digital Experience Platform.
Introducing the Closed-Circuit
Open-source platforms simply don't provide the level of security that gave our client's peace of mind. Closed-source platforms tended to be complex and inflexible. We created something new and called it "Closed-Circuit". InspireHUB Verified developers can create modules for our platform that allows our clients the flexibility of plug-ins with a higher peace of mind.
Progressive Web App
In 2015, we completed a successful beta test using Progressive Web App technology with a client working at the Kakuma Refugee camp. We're excited to have been one of the original pioneers in the field and look forward to its continued growth around the world.
Build in a Fraction of the Time
Inspired by the manufacturing line, we created a process that would allow solutions to be built in a fraction of the time of other competitors and would automatically include all the most complex elements ready to go. Our fastest launch? A completed, market-ready hub with content in less than 4 hours.
We could not have predicted how much the world would change when we made the decision that our clients would own all their data on their platform. It's a game-changer for our client's and their users.
It took an entire team to get us to this point, but along the way, we had a few key moments that transformed our technology to become the platform it is today.
