Lions Clubs International serves community needs on a global scale to fight blindness, support youth, and provide disaster relief. With 46,000 clubs with over 1.4 million members in over 200 countries, LCI wanted to offer their members a modern digital way to help their communities thrive, keep them informed, and energize their base.
THE BUSINESS GOAL
Develop the MyLion app to help members across the world connect with each other, increase service activities and participation, and deepen their awareness of the impact of their service on the world.
The MyLion app has an ecosystem of services that run on the Microsoft Azure platform and is designed for high scalability and performance. It integrates with LCI’s on-premise legacy systems to provide seamless data transfer between the environments. JDK developed the MyLion app in a span of 6 months, completing the project ahead of time and under budget. We built features to enable members to grow their networks across continents, help them increase awareness of service activities, attract new members, and drive participation in local service events. The app is localized in 12 languages.
MYLION APP IN ACTION
JDK developed the MyLion app in a span of 6 months, completing the project ahead of time and under budget. With a user-first approach and keeping the Lions Clubs goals front and center, we built features to enable members to grow their networks across continents, help them increase awareness of service activities, attract new members, and drive participation in local service events. Finally, recognizing the span of generations of its members, we designed the app with features and functionality that appealed to all age groups.
MYLION HELPS PEOPLE SERVE
The MyLion app enables members to easily create, organize, and promote a service activity through their mobile device. Members can also discover service projects anywhere around the world to join while traveling. Driven by their passion to serve the community, members found this feature practical and exciting.
MYLION IS FUN AND EASY
Keeping the needs of older and younger generations in mind, we designed the MyLion app to be intuitive to set up, and fast and easy to learn and navigate. We built in ways for members to share their community impact and influence to their social networks, engage in real-time collaboration, capture their service activities through photos, and earn badges for their hard work.
MYLION IS MULTI-LINGUAL
With clubs and members located in over 200 countries, localizing the MyLion app was a critical component of this project. The app has language support in 12 languages.
Recently Lions Clubs International celebrated its centennial birthday and launched the MyLion app at the milestone event. It was thrilling to see a rapid spike in the number of app installs and how quickly each user was up and running with their first service activity.
