Spectrum Health is a not-for-profit health system, based in Grand Rapids Michigan, offering a full range of care throughout the Spectrum Health Hospital Group, which is comprised of 11 hospitals, 170 ambulatory service sites, and over 1080 employed physicians.

Spectrum Health employees enjoy discounts on goods and services from a variety of vendors. While previously only accessible using a website at work, our Employee Discount Mobile App now gives Spectrum Health employees access to these discounts from anywhere using their mobile devices.

Spectrum Health employees start at the Employee Discounts landing page shown in the left iPhone image. A task bar allows a user to search through all the discounts either by name or by category.

After selecting a particular discount, a user is given more information than the original snippet found on the landing page. This additional information, shown in the right iPhone image, may include the address of the location offering the discount and sometimes a special discount code.

By providing a mobile way of searching and viewing discounts, Spectrum Health employees can now take better advantage of the employee discount system.

Our Employee Discount Mobile App runs on all phones and tablets of varying sizes. The back end of our system is written in C#, with ASP.net MVC 4.0. The front end uses AngularJS, HTML and CSS.
