When The American Optometric Association approached Sundaram, they wanted to liven up the presentations given at their annual Optometry’s Meeting conference. They wanted PowerPoint style presentations with a consistent look, centralized slide and presentation management, as well as a timer for rapid fire presentation fun. Quality control was an important requirement for the AOA. It was critical that users had the tools necessary to create engaging presentations, while maintaining brand and design consistency.
Sundaram leveraged the Drupal 7 open source platform to create a custom presentation system called Time Flo. It provided centralized management of all presentations. We used pre-existing and custom written modules to streamline the user interface, while creating a custom, intuitive user-interface for managing slide content and presentations. This enabled users to create their presentations online by selecting custom presentation themes that echoed AOA branding. Sundaram also created a separate feature set for administrators and presenters enabling better system management.
The American Optometric Association continues to use Time Flo for their conference and have worked with Sundaram since its inception to expand features.
