Custom iPad app for private equity group creates an intuitive and visually stunning presentation.

Pritzker iPad App

The wall-mounted display in the private equity firm's corporate headquarters provides visitors with an interactive experience on the firm's portfolio companies.

A custom application utilizes iPad’s face-detection capabilities to “launch” the experience. And each touch-screen interaction controls all 20 iPads to present images, graphs, charts and text. Company info and imagery can be updated via a WordPress Content Management System

Hartford Design also created a version of the presentation for a single iPad, for company representatives to use in meetings with clients.

The complete design solution was strategically on target – creating a compelling and customizable presentation that provides each user with a unique experience.
