Reggie®, one of the world’s first mobile student registration apps, has been shortlisted for a prestigious UK Mobile & App Design Award in the Education category.
Reggie®, part of the Contact Group portfolio, allows teachers to take the register anytime, anywhere using their phone or tablet. Contact Group, provider of school-home communications solutions, has partnered with GSD®, the visual communication agency that created and developed Reggie®.
The UK Mobile & App Design Awards celebrate creativity, courage and innovation in mobile achievements by both creators and commissioners, the awards provide a unique opportunity for all sectors of the industry to participate across an extensive range of categories and achieve marketplace recognition.
The international awards, hosted by design100, are being extended to Europe for the first time in 2014. The assessment process will involve an expert judging panel, members of the design industry and people from the design marketplace.
Commenting on Reggie®, Mark Smith from a secondary school in Staffordshire said: “We had been looking for a registration app for a while when we found out about Reggie®”.
“We’ve had it for three months now and it’s been invaluable for our PE teachers as they are often based in various locations such as the leisure centre, changing rooms or out on a field when they need to take a register. It is much easier for them to carry their phone or iPod, allowing them to quickly take the register wherever, and then get on with the lesson.”
“We are looking to increase the amount of users who can access Reggie® in the near future as we feel it would benefit other departments due to its simplicity and cost.”
Stephen Clarke, MD of Contact Group said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for the 2014 UK Mobile & App Design Awards, it is a great recognition of all the hard work that has gone into developing and bringing Reggie to market, the simplicity and effectiveness of which is loved by schools throughout the UK”.
Graham Shapiro, CEO and Founder of GSD commented: “We are excited to have been shortlisted for such a prestigious award. This achievement recognises our efforts in creating a quick, affordable and user friendly registration application for schools”.
