Waracle App Developers Working With Imperial College London for iPhone, iPad, Android and Web

8th April 2013

We’re delighted to announce Waracle has been selected to work with Imperial College London, one of the world’s most prestigious Universities, on a ground-breaking app development project. This will see Waracle’s mobile app and web technology deployed in the University’s Bioresource programme. Having fended off competition from 9 top app developers across London and the UK, including some of the countries biggest app development agencies, ICL chose to work with Waracle based on our significant track-record, technical expertise and ability to support the app once it’s been launched. Our approach differs to other developers in that we’re focused on the science of app development, using cutting-edge technology to constantly refine and optimise software based on hard-data and user-behaviour – an approach favoured by ICL.


App Development Project Outline

The Bioresource programme is a pioneering new project being spearheaded by Imperial College London that provides an extensive sampling framework for medical testing. The programme invites participants to undergo a baseline medical test, the participants are then matched with specific testing-programmes based upon their individual medical conditions. Administering a programme of this scale via traditional, paper-based processes can be costly and time-consuming which is why ICL have chosen to deploy mobile and web technology developed by Waracle to increase speed, efficiency and data-security.

Imperial College London were extremely impressed with the Waracle team’s track record in delivering mobile and web solutions to the NHS. Last year we developed a tablet survey application that saves the NHS time and money and is currently being used at NHS sites across Scotland. The tablet app replaced an existing paper-based process with mobile, web and back-end technology designed and developed by Waracle right here in Dundee.

We often joke when pitching to clients down south that we can be in central London quicker than they can using the Dundee to London City flight. It’s a real asset to our business and enables us, and other Dundee companies, to compete on a national level, bring in high profile clients and expand our workforce in Dundee. We’re currently in talks with an extremely high profile company from Aberdeen currently seeking an outstanding app developer. Watch this space for details.
