CDS win prestigious Drum DADI Award
CDS are delighted to announce that we have won the prestigious Drum DADI award. We won the Public Sector Website award category for our work on the Single Online Home (SOH) for all UK policing.
The project to build SOH is being described as the most significant change since the creation of the 999-emergency number launched in 1937 and then rolled out across the UK in 1976.
CDS won the contract with Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) for the delivery and implementation of SOH, in partnership with the Digital Policing Portfolio (DPP).
The SOH for policing will provide the opportunity for nationally consistent, locally branded services to be brought together in a 'digital police station'. The project focuses on the needs of the public, founded on extensive user-research, shifting the focus from information broadcast to the delivery of online services for transactions, interactions and engagement.
The DADIs (The Drum Awards for the Digital Industries) is open internationally to all agencies and brands who are producing exciting and innovative digital work. From apps to consumer products, use of search to social media, paid media and VR, the DADIs have recognised excellence for the past 12 years.
The Drum is Europe's largest media and marketing website and the fastest growing in the US and APAC. Each month they attract over 1.4 million unique users and have over 200,000 social followers.
CDS Managing Director, Mark Gair said, "To be awarded this accolade from the DADI’s is really special and it demonstrates that the work we do is Making A Positive Difference. The team working on this program are doing an amazing job and I am eternally grateful for all their hard work and continued focus as we continue to deliver a critical National Program. “
CDS Head of Marketing, Paul Meersman said, "We would like to thank our clients for their vision and trust, our partners, including Episerver and UK Cloud, for their ongoing collaboration and support, and the team at CDS for their dedication, hard work and unflinching focus on the success of this challenging project."
