Winners of the UK Industry Mobile App of the Year Award for creating a modernised application which would support Scottish Fire and Rescue Service to proactively respond to incidents quickly. SFRS were working with an aging fragmented system and were searching for a solution which would create a modernised application to replaces the existing system so they were able to work mobile with the app anywhere and anytime. risual noticed how crucial it was for the Fire and Rescue Service to be able to access to information at any location and anytime, and worked with the Fire Service to create an application which allows the fire fighters to view operation intelligence at the touch of a button, ensuring they have access to all the information they need. The system both protects the fire fighters from potential hazards and dangers and protects the Fire Service from a legality standpoint. The system was designed by a risual enterprise architect and the design, build and documentation were produced by development team who worked on creating a Windows UWP application. Testing was performed by our qualified QA testers.

risual was also shortlisted for the UK IT Industry Best Use of Cloud Services Award for helping UK Export Finance (UKEF) transform their environment into a cloud first organisation.
And of course, huge congratulations to all the other businesses who won and were highly commended for various awards. We ha d fabulous night and it was great to see a few familiar faces throughout the evening.
