The new-year has started well for WAE with two of our wonderful clients being shortlisted at The Techies 2016 – eva in the ‘Ultimate App’ category and Metropolitan Police iPad Mobility Project in the ‘Public Sector Creation: Product’ category.

The Techies have been designed to highlight innovation and excellence amongst UK Tech’s most exciting businesses, individuals and startups.

eva – live life, share it

eva is a new consumer-facing video social network, developed by global service design consultancy WAE, and Forbidden Technologies, a developer of cloud-based video editing solutions. Launched in October 2015 on iOS, eva allows users to record and share extraordinary experiences with friends and the wider online community via video, and was built to be beautiful, simple and unique.

Celebrating creativity, courage and innovation in design eva won ‘Best New Service or Application’ at the UK App Design Awards 2015.

Metropolitan Police iPad Mobility Project

WAE worked with the Metropolitan Police Mobility Team to develop a pilot system that enhances the Met’s Crime Reporting Information System (CRIS) by improving the flow of information to “frontline” officers on the street, and allowing better informed decisions to be made quickly on location. As a direct result of the system, officers are now able to use an iPad Mini to electronically take witness statements, report crimes and record evidence on location, eliminating the need to return to the Police Station to manually enter the information onto a computer and enabling officers to spend more time on the street.

We are extremely proud of the positive global reception the Met Police project has received. In addition to being shortlisted at The Techies, the project has won and been shortlisted for a host of awards including the UX Awards, The UK Digital Experience Awards, the Meffys, the Lovie Awards and the Mobile Excellence Awards.
