Best App Modernization: Capita
Capita One delivers solutions that transform the delivery of government services by bringing the UK's public sector and community services data together to deliver better social services. They used Progress® OpenEdge® platform to update and modernize their One Assets application, a unique cloud asset management solution for social housing organizations. The updated app now has a single responsive web-based interface with strong mobile support, providing real-time views to manage, monitor, and prepare housing assets.
Best Consumer App: Muvr
Muvr is a cutting-edge app for orthopedic surgery patients built on Progress® Kinvey® app. Through wearable sensors the app collects motion data from joints, which is then analyzed for a current state analysis. Doctors access the data to identify at-risk patients, understand progress, and recommend interventions. This data is also used within the app along with patient medical data to provide exercises, education, reminders and more. This is a full recovery, all delivered in an app.
Best Enterprise App: Holder
Construction, the ‘HELIX Project’
Holder Construction, a multi-billion-dollar construction management and contracting services company, builds high-profile projects such as an NFL stadium and tech behemoth campuses. They moved their entire construction process from offline onto a Progress® Kinvey® app. The app provides access to all of the plans, documentation, drawings and more required to do their jobs. With high performance offline access, they can use the app even in environments of little to no connectivity. They have increased quality, efficiency and safety with this amazing new app.
Best Web Experience: Crystal
Crystal Cruises, the world's most awarded luxury cruise line, used Progress® Sitefinity® web content management solution to relaunch and transform its website, www.crystalcruises.com.
