DevHubYellow + MySportsIQ + SocialDuels = Busy Q1'11March 22, 2011
Due to the flurry of activity this first quarter for EVO, we haven't had a chance to properly update our company blog. Here's a quick peak as to what we've been upto the past few months (aside from our usual tasks with DevHub.com):
EVO's official white label of the DevHub platform specifically targeted for the Yellow Pages and Telecom industries officially launched in mid-January. All the great tools on DevHub.com are now available to be customized and packaged to meet the needs of these industries' small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs).
The recent decline in yellow page print and traditional telecom services, in addition to the explosion of Internet and mobile usage, has forced companies in these related industries to rapidly evolve their service offerings. With DevHub Yellow, these companies can now offer a full-fledged website and hosting solution to their client base, built with the busy, non-techie SMB owner in mind.
Since launching a couple months ago, reception has been phenomenal and EVO has already secured three major clients (both domestically and internationally). We look to bring more partners on board in the coming quarter. For more information, please check out: www.devhubyellow.com.
In conjunction with BigDoor Media, EVO also launched SocialDuels this March, a social game based on FaceBook activity and popularity. Using BigDoor's gamification back-end, this project was completed within just three months! From concept to launch.

Launching in Beta just in time for March Madness is MySportsIQ. EVO teamed up with the sports statisticians over at Accuscore (supplier of odds for the likes of ESPN, Yahoo!Sports, and most major newspapers) to create a game to log in your picks for almost any major sport in the U.S., which then provides you with a running Sports IQ score. Now you and your friends can officially figure out who the sports guru is in your bunch. This one was also a quick development process (5 months) with the help of BigDoor's gamficiation back-end.
