First Hackathon Prize
Best project made by a team primarily composed of first time hackers.
Most unique or outside of the box hack.
In a store a vehicle has a SOLD tag placed on it when it's placed on "hold." That's where the tracking issue is. What's a more efficient way for stores to keep up with online traffic; better than an associate running out to a car to place the hold tag?
