Website Development

Interactive Map/ News

Skagga created an interactive map that allows users to quickly find information about various bases around the globe and hear the latest news from those sites. Each location has a sub-page that introduces the missionaries at that base and gives those missionaries a chance to share their heart and have a voice within the IRIS Global site.

Web & Native Applications

Skagga worked to develop various web and native applications for IRIS Global that reduced their need for both additional school admissions administration personnel and financial administration staff members, freeing up valuable resources for further outreach missions.

School Application Web App

Skagga developed an extensive online application for IRIS Global that streamlined mission training school application.

This web app allows students to sign up completely online, upload required documentation, and view their current status.

A back-end administration system allows administrators to process applications with ease, update an application status, automate emails to students upon acceptance, integrate letters of invite from base countries, have flight itinerary and passport available, automate notifications to student, immigration department charts, and medical history charts among other things.

The app's automation of so many features reduced the need for personnel and allowed for the multiplication and creation of additional training schools.

Financial Web App

Skagga developed a financial app for IRIS Global that integrated with Non-Profit QuickBooks and SalesForce (a Customer Relationship Management Tool) for the managing and sorting of the thousands of donations and school payments made to IRIS Global each year.

This financial web app has a mapping system that integrates with QuickBooks to automatically synchronize the QuickBooks classes and designates what fee, payment, or donation goes where.

The app also automates receipts and notifications and keeps track of past giving and school payments for users.

This app reduces the workload for financial administration staff members, freeing those funds to be able to bring spiritual and physical peace to those in need.

Native IRIS Media App

Skagga developed a podcast application for IRIS Media. This app allows users to watch podcasts and is available for both iOS and Android.

Affiliate Ministry

Skagga worked with Rolland and Heidi Baker to create a simple informational website showcasing their personal callings and ministry with a way for people to donate directly to them.
