AnYare Won 1st Telecom Application Developer Hackathon (TADHack) PH Hosted by Globe Telecom

In the recent hackathonZ(TADHack) Philippines hosted by Globe Telecom, young developers of AnYare won the 1st with an amount of $1,000(USD) and an all-expense paid-trip for one to Istanbul.

AnYare was developed as a solution to geographically-challenged teams. It addresses the lack of communication among organisations with workers in the field. AnYare is the brainchild of young developers Marte Soliza and Beato Bongco.
According to Bongco, the app allows registered users to create teams. Everyone in the team will receive a call at a pre-determined time. They can record the answer, and a designated administrator can retrieve the response by calling the app and downloading information through a web interface. This means that team leaders of organisations can retrieve reports from their members of the field anytime and anywhere, as long as there is a cell phone signal.

Soliza and Bongco emerged first among 12 teams, winning USD 1,000 and an all-expense paid trip for one to Istanbul for the two-day TADHack Summit in November. In addition, two other promising teams were given awards.

TADHack, a global meeting place for developers, was held simultaneously in six different cities: Manila, Philippines; Madrid, Spain; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Chicago, USA; Pune, India; and Colombo, Sri Lanka and was live-streamed to enable teams to compete remotely. 
The three sets of winners: AnYare, Coneed, and Meet Plus.
