    We recognize the lack of quiet study space at the University of Michigan, especially during midterms and finals. We, at edUMize, would thus like to make it easier for students to be guaranteed a quiet place to study. Our original plan was to keep track of each available place to study on campus but we ran into the problem of policing such a system. We would have had to hire more staff to monitor that people’s reservations weren’t being taken and we would have had to implement a system in which students would scan their MCards to gain access to University buildings. While our original proposal would have been undoubtedly beneficial for the student body at the University of Michigan, its implementation was too comprehensive for the current state of our start-up company. Thus, we decided to narrow the focus of our proposal: enter the Quiet Study Space Reservations System.

    With the Quiet Study Reservations System, students are able to book a seat in a room designated for quiet, INDIVIDUAL study or a group of students are able to book a room for quiet, GROUP WORK. The reservations are handled primarily online, as edUMize has teamed up with Facebook and the University of Michigan as to utilize these to online platforms. If students do not have easy access to the internet or are simply not near a computer, edUMize has created an automated hotline that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week: simply call the toll-free number (800) 555-STDY. By allowing reservations on the internet and over the phone, we have the intention to not disadvantage those without the technological privileges that others have.

    Our service will be undeniably beneficial to University of Michigan students, who will now be able to study longer and more efficiently and will thus do better in their classes, which will result in better grad school and job opportunities. Aside from the benefit to students, what’s great about the Quiet Study Space Reservations System is that both Facebook and the University of Michigan would benefit as well. Facebook would see increased usage as students would use their accounts more often to book a room and students who do not have Facebook accounts may well be enticed to join. The University of Michigan would benefit from being the first University to implement such a system and it would also benefit from the increased performance of its students.

    We are incredibly excited about the launch of our new product and while we know that it is both necessary and nice for students, we at edUMize are always open to suggestions on how to improve the quality of our product!
