Ideas @ Work for Oasis Investment Company / Al Shirawi (Android)
Oasis Investment Company LLC is the holding company of the Al Shirawi Group, one of the largest industrial conglomerates in the Persian Gulf, spanning the manufacturing, engineering, trading, transport and logistics, marketing, distribution, contracting, and service industries
The conglomerate comprises over 29 different companies, all with unique specializations, and more than 6500 employees, and is currently ranked at 74 on the Forbes list of Top 100 Companies Making an Impact in the Arab World. The company was founded in 1971 and is based in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.
Al Shirawi came to me looking for an app they could distribute to their 10,000 employees in order to gather all of the best ideas from their various companies. The app is kind of like a virtual suggestion box where employees can share ideas to improve workflow and life in the various industries they work. Users can submit ideas along with pictures, and also tag them so they can be found using the search feature. Users can also set up their own profile, like and comment on the ideas various other features (such as sorting by category, searching etc). At the heart of it, the app feels very much like a Facebook feed but for innovative ideas.
