Traun´s municipal Integration and Youth Department, together with youth associations and street workers, caters to the needs of residents aged 12 to 25. Their new app provides an additional channel for reaching out to teenagers, often with migration background, providing them with information and drawing them to communal youth activities and programs.
The app supplies young users with a wide variety of latest relevant information including current job opportunities provided by the local labor office, news about upcoming events, invitations from clubs and youth organizations, and also a law guide as support in emergencies. All content is displayed on both Android and iOS devices in a target-group-oriented design.
The very efficient creation process of the Check Traun app showcases a streamlined approach achieving high-quality execution in smaller projects. Such a streamlining involves, among other things, a clever choice of technologies: The Netural developer team picked the implementation-ready framework Ionic as a stable basis for the app. Quick and easy updating and maintenance is supported efficiently by the cloud-based Storyblok content management system. All content is provided by the municipality, and also by youth clubs, associations and organizations. Future extensions will aim at involving the target audience in content creation.
