Abstract: A good health condition is important to maintain. It is a root cause to many other positive aspects in life. Productivity in a working industry can be improved if employees have a good health condition. Because of this, some companies are interested in keeping their employees as healthy as possible. The IT-consulting company CGI uses an in-house developed application, called CGIMoving, to offer exercise campaigns for its employees to encourage a healthy lifestyle. CGIMoving is a web system for logging physical exercise activities, where employees can voluntarily participate and log their workout activity and earn rewards. The CGI members who are responsible for the project have made a backlog with features that they wish to be implemented. The goal of the project was to improve CGIMoving by implementing a set of chosen backlog features. Product improvement was done according to an agile Scrum methodology. Tools and techniques used were the ASP.NET web-development framework and the Model-View-Controller design pattern with Visual Studio as the development environment. This report documents the development of six improvements to the CGIMoving system. These improvements are documented in the implemented order: (1) create predefined activities for a campaign, implementation of reminders for (2) inactivity and (3) unclaimed rewards, (4) edit user registered activities, (5) edit information about users and (6) create events. The improvements resulted in an upgraded version of the product.
