Zudu are delighted to announce our recent project, Dundee Recovery Road Map, has been named the June 2022 Silver winner in the Best Mobile App Contest!
The Silver Award is the third-highest achievement in the Best Mobile App Contest and is determined by the Best Mobile App Award judges. The contest additionally takes into consideration votes from the general public (but only one vote can be cast per IP address). The award judges assess all entries based on the app’s features and functionality; the creativity, originality, and design of the app idea; how well the app services its purpose; and much more. Previous nominees and winners of the Best Mobile App Contest include My DHL App, MyFitnessPal, and many others.
Speaking about the award win, James Buchan (CEO at Zudu) said:
“Zudu and the Parish Nursing Dundee team (who commissioned the app) were absolutely thrilled to receive the results of this award! As a local app for the City of Dundee, Dundee Recovery Road Map was up against national and international submissions – making it even more rewarding to be recognised in this category.
“We’ve worked with Parish Nursing Dundee since November 2021 and it’s been an absolute pleasure to learn more about their work and be able to support them in spreading the word about the services they provide, as well as helping people find support in a time of need.
“We’re proud to be a Dundee-based company and hope that this app will help make a real difference and uplift our community.”
About Dundee Recovery Road Map
Dundee Recovery Road Map is a social platform that brings the Dundee community together. It provides signposting, information, and directions to useful local services for mental health support, food provision, addiction and recovery support, harm reduction, health and wellbeing, rehabilitation, peer support, as well as family and carer support. It aims to help vulnerable people by giving them immediate access to support and promoting mental and physical well-being. It also reduces the time people spend researching services and ensures they have accurate and up-to-date information regarding their opening times and days of operation to ensure no one is turned away.
The app is completely free to use and makes support services more visible and accessible for a range of individuals and aims to remove the stigma around seeking help by providing a map and list view of available services, their locations, and opening times, as well as further contact details for offline support. As the app gives directions in Google Maps, users are also able to take advantage of Google’s accessibility features, live traffic updates, and more to help make their journey to a session easier and less stressful (as sessions can also run across several locations, Google Maps also provides users with information about wheelchair accessibility at each location).
