Reggie® wins award for Outstanding Mobile App
Published by Hayley Enright for Livewire Public Relations in Education
Reggie®, one of the world’s first mobile student registration apps, has won a prestigious MobileWebAward for ‘Outstanding Mobile App’.
Reggie®, part of the Contact Group portfolio, allows teachers to take the register anytime, anywhere using their phone or iPad. Contact Group, provider of best in class communication and data services to the public sector, has partnered with GSD®, the visual communication agency that created and developed Reggie®.
The Web Marketing Association’s annual awards recognise the best in internet marketing and development from across the world. Judged by a panel of industry experts, the awards are one of a select few celebrating state-of-the-art mobile design.
Open to entries from across the world, Reggie® now sits alongside winners such as Google, Orange, E! Online, Volkswagen and Gucci.
Reggie® is ideal for PE teachers out on the field. A portrait shot of each student included on the register sits alongside their name, making it easy for teachers to identify missing children quickly and efficiently. This feature is also ideal for supply teachers frequently duped at registration by students answering on behalf of their absent friends.
Commenting on Reggie®, Paul Whitehead, from a secondary school in Cheshire, said:
“Reducing the time teachers have to spend taking the register means more time for teaching. In an era when everyone is under pressure to deliver great results, that’s good news not just for students, but teachers too. The Reggie® app is incredibly quick and easy to use and takes full advantage of smartphone simplicity to free up hours of extra contact time over the school year. The fact Reggie® is available for both Apple and Android devices is the icing on the cake.”
Designed to meet Government standards of online security, Reggie® requires a secure log-on via username, password and school ID. Data transmission is fully SSL encrypted. In the event that the device is lost, all the data can be erased remotely.
