NHS Scotland App
Each year NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and Glasgow City Council hosts a staff walking challenge (Active Staff) during which participants work in a small team and count their individual daily steps taken. The team’s steps are totalled and added towards a distance target. Up until now, this has been done manually with thousands of emails, spreadsheets and manic step-counting.
With the help of Papertank and World Walking, we managed to completely automate this system with online registration and apps for both iPhone and Android. With the ease of this system in place, 4100 participants took part in this year’s challenge. That’s an incredible three times as many as the previous year!
