This annual award program honors visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational change. For 25 years, the Honors Program has recognized organizations that use information technology to promote and advance the public welfare, benefit society and change the world for the better. The Mobile Access category recognizes organizations for the innovative application of IT to extend the distribution of digital information, programs and services through mobile devices, enabling reach to the many populations around the world where mobile devices are more common than desktop computers.
Using Moovweb’s cloud-based platform, the Society’s mobile sites offer thousands of pages of research, advice and support information to cancer patients and their families who are now able to access all of the content and features of the desktop site, including the ability to accept donations, from their mobile devices.
“The Society is proud to have extended our digital mission platform, cancer.org, to mobile with Moovweb,” said David Balcom, the Society’s managing director of digital platforms. “We are now able to support cancer patients and their loved ones anywhere, anytime by providing them with a rich, mobile experience. We’re honored by the recognition given to us by Computerworld on the eve of our 100 birthday, as we call on everyone to help us finish the fight against cancer.”
The Moovweb empowers businesses to go mobile by taking a fundamentally different approach to unifying their Web and mobile development. With Moovweb’s patent-pending site virtualization and transformation technology, a business’s mobile sites and apps inherit and stay in sync with a desktop site’s content, features and business logic. This approach allows powerful mobile experiences to be delivered in days, not months, and drives radically improved business agility over time.
“The Society mobile experiences are exceptional,” said Mitch Bishop, chief marketing officer, Moovweb. “We’re always excited when one of our customers receives this kind of prestigious industry recognition, but in this case we’re especially thrilled since the Society mobile sites are helping patients and their families improve their quality of life and contributing to the fight to eradicate cancer once and for all.”
The Computerworld Honors Program awards will be presented at the Gala Evening and Awards Ceremony on June 3, 2013 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
