WAE named finalist in global UX Awards for The Metropolitan Police iPad Mobility Project

More good news for WAE! It gives us great pleasure to announce that the Metropolitan Police iPad Mobility Project has been named finalist today for the global UX Awards.

Dedicated to showcasing the best in UX practitioners, outcomes, process and impact, the global UX Awards highlight the essential value of UX. How it has inspired and educated the broader technology community, plus the need to celebrate and reward success in the discipline.

The awards ceremony takes place in New York on the 16th November and WAE will be in good company as other finalists include Qatar, Google or SAP to name a few. Showcasing a line up of industry specialists, this year’s judges include the head of experience design, AirBNB, Katie Dill; the founder of Tectonic and former design director at Microsoft, Bill Flora and the VP of digital at McKinsey & Company, Jennifer Kilian. Last years’ winners include Deutsch, SAP, Interaxon, Method, Cantina, UberConference, UX Vision, and American Express, amongst others.

WAE worked with the Metropolitan Police Mobility Team to develop a pilot system that enhances three key areas of The Metropolitan Police’s Crime Reporting Information System (CRIS). With a clear vision to improve the flow of information and help front line officers make urgent decisions on location, officers were able to quickly and efficiently report crimes and missing persons, collect evidence and record witness statements by using an iPad Mini.

This is the fifth award that WAE has been recognised for its work with The Metropolitan Police. The project has also been named Finalist for the Mobile Excellence Awards’ Best Mobile Utility Application for Smartphone or Tablet category, UK Digital Experience Awards’ Best App/Mobile — First Strategy and Government Service categories and Meffys awards’ Innovation in Technology category and highly commended for the Lovie in the Best User Experience category.
