GLOBAL RECOGNITION FOR SCOTS DISABILITY APP
Accessibility app WelcoMe by Neatebox secured a prestigious win for Scotland and the UK at the UN-backed World Summit Awards 2020.
WelcoMe snapped up the Inclusion and Empowerment Award and was confirmed as the only UK business within the WSA Global Top 40.
The World Summit Awards select and promote digital solutions that address global issues and improve society.
Backed by the UN and following a rigorous assessment programme, the final jury of 43 internationally recognised experts selected 40 solutions from 26 countries.
WelcoMe is a web-based service from Edinburgh based disability solutions provider Neatebox.
WelcoMe helps disabled people access customer experiences in ways that meet their needs, improving communication between customer-facing staff and people with disabilities.
The digital solution links venues with customers, giving real-time advice on giving the best service to individuals tailored to their disability and their reasons for visiting.
Neatebox Founder and CEO, Gavin Neate (pictured), said: “WelcoMe is a service which will truly revolutionise the way in which society interacts with its disabled members.
To be recognised at any time is fantastic but to represent your country and win a World Summit Award for Inclusion and Empowerment at a time when disabled people are under such dreadful strain due to the effects of COVID19 is truly inspiring for us all.”
