Mobile Technology Excellence & Innovation Award (BidPal, Inc.): Indianapolis-based BidPal, Inc. improves charitable fundraising by helping nonprofits use technology to more efficiently run their charitable events. The company was chosen for its ability to create high-density area networks that handle the massive amounts of congestion that can happen when, for example, 1,000 people are using mobile devices to vote at the same time. BidPal has not only improved the very laborious process of producing charitable auctions, but they have “gamified” it using mobile technology and doubled the financial impact for their customers.
