CHRISTCHURCH EARTHQUAKE: EDWIN COE ASSISTS TRADEMOBILE DEVELOPER OF MOBILE APP FOR ST JOHN
Edwin Coe has helped long-standing international mobile/IT client, TradeMobile, to set up a fundraising website and mobile application for St John, formerly known as St John's Ambulance, to support communities in Christchurch following the recent earthquake which has devastated much of the city.
The website, www.donatechristchurch.co.nz enables internet and mobile phone users to make a donation to St John and also to leave messages of goodwill and support on a community notice-board.
The initiative was set up in a very short time scale; the whole process took 48 hours from inception to creation, requiring close co-ordination of a number of Edwin Coe's corporate and commercial practice areas.
A spokesperson for St John, Gerry Fitzgerald, said that the technology in place now offers people who wish to support St John, a fast and practical way to do so.
Lead partner at Edwin Coe, Ronald Graham said that he was delighted with the speed with which the various parties had been able to respond, and added, "We have a long-standing association with TradeMobile and are delighted to use our commercial contract, telecoms and technology expertise to work with the company to facilitate such a project."
Edwin Coe is proud of its association with TradeMobile and is particularly active in the technology, telecoms and charities sectors.
