Awards Nominations

eyeWitness to Atrocities - The International Bar Association / Compsoft

Best New Service or Application

- Silver 

eyeWitness to Atrocities captures images, video and audio through a disguised camera app - the app icon is designed to look like a third-party camera, preventing recognition without detailed inspection. Media is recorded along with comprehensive device metadata such as GPS location, date, time and content verification data. Users have the option to add notes and tags to the content, which is stored in a secure in-app Vault rather than the device’s image gallery. The media is then uploaded to a secure server, where it can be reviewed by the IBA’s team of experts.

 

iBiker - Peninsula Motorcycle Forum / Compsoft

TravelTech

- Silver 

Although motorcyclists account for less than 3% of road users, nationally they are involved in approximately one in every five fatal collisions. Bikers are also substantially over-represented in other serious collisions. However the motorcycle community is often extremely difficult to engage with on the subject of road safety; many feel they are above average riders so have no need of further training. The iBiker apps for iPhone and Android were created to get the most at-risk and “off-the-radar” bikers to engage with a different form of education and training, where more traditional methods have proved ineffective.

 

MyOngaku - Ongaku Learning / Compsoft

Family

- Gold 

The Suzuki® Method requires strong commitment from both students and their parents. Students need frequent at-home practice, and parents with little or no musical experience may struggle to assist their child during practice time. Designed to help violin students and their parents make the most of practice time, MyOngaku enables students to view video demonstrations of specific pieces of music simply by pointing the camera of their iPhone or iPad at their sheet music page. This innovative approach to content delivery provides students and parents easy, on-demand access to guidance they need, at the moment they need it.

 

Rolls-Royce Flight Checklist - WingPro and Rolls-Royce / Compsoft

Business Tools

- Gold 

The iPad app is designed to sit in the cockpit of an aircraft to guide the pilot through their essential pre-flight checks. The app also has a flypast feature (including Pebble and Apple Watch integration), ensuring perfect timings can be achieved more easily and more safely than with traditional methods.

 

Displaydata Dynamic Central - Displaydata / Compsoft

Business Operations

- Silver 

Retailers have been using paper labels to display price and product information for years. However, retailers now recognise the benefits of displaying this information digitally using electronic shelf labels (ESLs). Displaying accurate and impactful price, product and marketing messages in the store, with the ability to update this content remotely in real-time, enhances both the consumer experience and the sales and margins of retailers using Displaydata ESLs. Displaydata’s Dynamic Solution helps eliminate many of the issues retailers face, including inconsistent pricing across channels, and helps bring the internet into the store with peer reviews and price comparisons displayed on ESLs.

 

iBiker - Peninsula Motorcycle Forum / Compsoft

Community

- Silver 

Although motorcyclists account for less than 3% of road users, nationally they are involved in approximately one in every five fatal collisions. Bikers are also substantially over-represented in other serious collisions. However the motorcycle community is often extremely difficult to engage with on the subject of road safety; many feel they are above average riders so have no need of further training. The iBiker apps for iPhone and Android were created to get the most at-risk and “off-the-radar” bikers to engage with a different form of education and training, where more traditional methods have proved ineffective.

 

Pixwup - Pixwup / Compsoft

Best App Startup

- Silver 

Place is a central element of almost all the content we share and consume; whether it’s a report on events in the Middle East, a friend’s visit to Paris or the winning goal at Wembley. Unlike other social/content-sharing networks, Pixwup doesn’t just allow content to be plotted by location, it places the map at the heart of content discovery. Pixwup’s intuitive interface allows users to upload their own content for public or private viewing, view trending items, and to quickly and easily browse images and videos posted anywhere in the world.

 

Everyday Golf Coach - (Everyday) Golf Coach / Compsoft

Home & Living

- Gold 

Everyday Golf Coach is the complete golf swing analysis and coaching package, giving the user offline access to 38 HD quality coaching videos with notes covering all aspects of the game. Users can search videos for particular topics and mark favourite videos for future reference. The Swing Analyser enables the user to import and analyse their own swing videos, and compare with the library of professional swings. Drawing tools with hints enable the user to annotate their own video to assist analysis. Users can also post pictures and videos to social media showing their progress.

 

Akademia Pro - Appening / Compsoft

EdTech

- Gold 

Akademia Pro is the UK’s first fully-functional collaborative Student and Teacher App. Teachers and students login to view their personal timetable and manage all aspects of their school life – teachers can create lesson plans and homework assignments, mark assignments, award merits and send messages to a class. Students can add their own notes and tasks, submit assignments, and rate their lessons. The app features a rich, intuitive UI and synchronizes with a secure back-end system which integrates with schools’ MIS. Tablets have the potential to revolutionize education. Akademia Pro enables schools, teachers and students to realise that potential.

 

Formworks - Digital Field Solutions / Compsoft

Business Platforms

- Silver 

Formworks for business eliminates the need for paper forms and cuts data processing time in half. The Formworks platform enables companies to easily create their own forms via a web GUI. Field based staff – for example salespeople, surveyors, facilities managers or auditors – then complete the forms on their iPad during a meeting or inspection. Formworks forms look familiar - just like paper forms, and support an exhaustive range of field types, including photo and signature capture, and handwriting recognition. Data is sent instantly back to the office - reducing paperwork and enabling faster data processing.
