At the evening time, staffs from NCS started to arrive and filled up the ballroom. The evening started with a song-and-dance performance from their senior management.

After that, dinner was served and the talent quest began. There were a total of 10 individuals / teams competing in their talent quest. After each performance, the code number of the performer was flashed on the screen to allow his/her supporter to SMS their votes in. The SMS votes comprised of 30% of the score, while the panel of judges controlled the other 70%. In order to have a fairer competition, duplicated votes will be filtered out by our system automatically, which means that even if an audience voted 10 times for a participant, it will only be counted as 1 vote.

The talent quest is very interesting and showcased the diversified talents of ncs’s staffs. There were songs, indian dance, hip hop and band performances. There was even a pole-dancing performance from one of the ncs staff which was, in my opinion, close to professional level.

The competition started at around 3.40pm and ended at around 5.20pm. The participants were lively and enthusiastic, and all of them put on excellent performances. Most of them were very young, around secondary school levels. The Live SMS Voting started right after the last team ended their performance and cut-off at around 6.10pm. The slide was displayed to inform the audience about the format and mobile number to send their sms votes to. The audience were very enthusiastic in the SMS voting to support their favourtie team, as we received a total of more than 800 SMSes (including duplicated votes) in less than an hour time.

As instructed by the organizers, our system automatically filtered out the duplicated SMS votes and tabulated the results in real-time.

Live SMS Voting at SUTD

Two days ago, we had a LIVE SMS Voting session at Singapore University of Technology & Design (SUTD). SUTD is a very new and dynamic university in Singapore. They are conducting a LIVE SMS voting among their Design class students to vote for the best project.

SUTD Live SMS Voting 1

SUTD Live SMS Voting 2

Eligible voters (the students of the subject) are supposed to send in SMS in the format “SUTD<space><project1><space><project2><space><project3>”, whereby <projectX> is the project number of those projects that you want to vote for. So in this case, each voters can vote for a maximum of three projects. Each voter can send in any number of sms, but only the latest sms for each mobile number is taken into account.

SUTD Live SMS Voting 3

The sms voting result was displayed during the session on a projector screen so that the students and guests could see the “race” happening in real-time. The students were very enthusiastic and the live sms voting certainly added an extra dose of excitement to the competition. The seven project groups shortlisted for the competition gave their demo and presentations, and our support staff was quite impressed by the liveliness, creativity and enthusiasm displayed by these young students.

We were secretly rooting for the “angry bird” project group: they were devising a way of calculating the projectile of the angry bird to guarantee a hit on the green pigs. Unfortunately, we are vendor not students so we did not have the privilege to vote. We heard later that the angry bird group got the bronze prize, so congratulation to them.

The event was a great success and we wished that the students of SUTD would continue to live their dreams and have a bright future!
