Sony Scene

Implemented by Webcoda Pty Ltd, Australia
Kentico Gold Partner

The Sony camera enthusiast community found a place for sharing experiences and skills via events and articles led by photography experts. Aside from content administrators, there is a type of user called “Hosts” that can log in and create events and judge photography competitions. The Webcoda team spent a lot of time designing and refining the mobile UI so that Hosts can do all of their work from their phone. The best examples of this are when Hosts can flick through photo competition entries and shortlist photos. The other example is when a Host runs an event and wants to check-in guests from their phone as they arrive. Users can purchase tickets and Hosts can do communication blasts to attendees.
