The Leipzig-based IAT (Institute of Applied Training Science) commissioned itCampus with developing a mobile application for the German Judo Federation (DJB). The interactive opponent database provides top trainers with information about and videos of judo practitioners via iPhone, iPod, or iPad - online or offline. This allows the coaches to prepare their athletes specifically for their next opponents and analyze fighting techniques, even in the competition arena.
Dr. Hans-Dieter Heinisch, head of the judo division at the IAT: “With this app, the DJB’s top trainers can access current opponents’ statistics, strategies, and techniques at any time and anywhere, with just a few clicks. They can use it to help with advance preparation for competition - and even in the competition hall - to get their athletes ready for their next opponents and develop specific strategies for victory. It’s the perfect way for our top athletes to prepare for matches!”

Audi of America commissioned pg40 and itCampus with developing a mobile sales reporting application for BlackBerry. Sales staff members can use the app to display up-to-date reporting - such as sales figures and opportunities by model, dealer, or region - on their phones, and they can generate forecasts and identify top performers. The goal is to be able to respond faster and more flexibly to current market trends. A single database forms the basis of the application, which has an aesthetically pleasing, functional design that is specifically tuned to the usage and navigation habits of BlackBerry users. The rollout was conducted centrally through the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
