About OU Innovate
OU Innovate is designed to make it easier for students to find out information about parking, events and campus activities. Beyond acting as a hosting location for campus announcements, the app, which Dom & Tom built for both Android and iOS platforms, performs a variety of unique functions and services that are incredibly valuable to OU students. One such feature is the app’s OU SafeRide integration. SafeRide is designed to protect students against the dangers of drunk driving. The option to hail a free ride after a night of drinking is only a tap away. Through the application, students can summon a ride directly from their mobile devices, completely free of charge. This service, which they are able to use one time per weekend, keeps them from getting behind the wheel of their own vehicle while also saving them costly taxi fees. Check out our blog post on the additional features and official launch of the OU Innovate app.
Congrats to both the OU and the Dom & Tom teams on an award winning app. Special thanks to Dom & Tom team members Jessica Ahn, Diego Navarro, Tom Tancredi, Chad Ziolkowski, David Bean and Amy Hudson, all of whom contributed to this amazing project.
