ProductDock Internal Library App

Remember our Rookie Boot Camp? Our main goal for the internship was to create an atmosphere of a real, client-requested project and ensure that the interns have the experience of being a part of it from start to finish. So they sat together with their mentor, planned, and designed our internal library app from scratch. They worked diligently at it for months and paid attention to every detail. A couple of weeks ago, the project was finished, and the crew got to launch their product!

We had a little launch party where the team demonstrated how to use the app, explained their thought process, and got first-hand feedback. Spoiler alert: everyone loved it! To make it official, their Unit Lead cut the blue ribbon and the library was ready for our crew to explore!

One of the main differences we implemented, aside from having an organized database of books and an app that is easy to use, is that the library is now in a spot that everyone can easily access. The books are now set up in our lounge area which has proven to be highly beneficial for everyone.

The library functions in a very simple and efficient way: our crew members can now browse the books on the shelves while they are waiting for their coffee, and if they like one, they can simply scan the QR code from the back of the book. By scanning it, they can see whether the book is reserved, how many copies we have, reviews from our colleagues, and more! If the book is available, they can reserve it with a click of a button and they can take the book home. The notification system will let them know when it’s time to return the book.

It’s safe to say that we are using our library much more now. We are so proud of our crew members for doing a great job and creating something so useful for everyone at PD!
