Your Organization's Product or Service:

 When trying to take a group picture, you always end up with one person having 10 different phones to take the exact same picture 10 different times. We do this because there is no easy way to share pictures. With SMS or Email you have to have everyone's contact info and you could just post them on Social Media but a lot of people don't want you to post their photos on social media, so we end up taking the same picture on 10 different phones.
The Share App allows someone to take a picture of you, and you instantly have that picture. Not because you're friends or connected in any way, but because you're Nearby. Share let's you share pictures with

Area of Business Process Improvement Your Organization Needs:

We need process help with how we manage communicating with our users as well as collecting feedback

Being that we are in Beta, it is very important for us to communicate with our users and collect feedback from them.  As new users signup (in both iOS and Android), we have their email address stored in our Database. Currently, we manually add new users to our mailChimp email lists, which is an inefficient method to maintain.  Ideally we also want to have different email lists for Android vs iOS since both versions of the app are in different phases, so the Android version doesn't yet have all of the features in the iOS app.  We need help syncing all of this.

Additionally, we are adding a feedback form within the app to encourage users to submit feedback or let us know about bugs. This feedback is stored in the database, and is also sent to us via email.  When they submit feedback within the app we are able to capture if they are on iOS or Android, but when people respond to our emails, they don't always, so we have to email them back to get more details.  Ideally we would like to see all feedback in one place.
