We’re thrilled to announce our recent success: winning the App of the Year award at the 2023 UK Business Tech Awards with GoodShape. This achievement reflects the joint efforts of both companies and our shared dedication to positively impacting the health and wellbeing sector.

Our collaboration with GoodShape commenced earlier this year and has proven to be a remarkable partnership. The synergy of our expertise and GoodShape’s vision resulted in a mobile app revolutionising health and wellbeing services for enterprise employees. GoodShape’s mission is clear: reduce the personal and financial impacts of work-related absences. Their approach involves smart interventions, reliable management tools, and effective referrals.

The GoodShape app, the centrepiece of our collaboration, functions as a lifeline for employees managing their wellbeing and work absences. It provides a tailored back-to-work program, direct access to clinical staff, and a wealth of health and wellness content. With 42 categories of clinical content, 374 unique wellbeing activities, 31,000 words of medical advice, 26 demonstration and exercise videos, and full medical profiles, the app is a comprehensive resource. The 24/7 chatbot enhances the overall in-app experience.

This success story highlights the collaboration between partners, agencies, and software providers. We worked closely to deliver a unique app solution benefiting thousands of users worldwide, supporting their health and wellbeing in the workplace.

James Arquette, Chief Product Owner at GoodShape, praised The Distance‘s documentation, emphasising our comprehensive feature document. This feedback reinforces the value of our meticulous approach to our work.

Our commitment to innovation led us to introduce a chatbot technology from EBM, replacing traditional form-based data collection. This humanised the process and made the app more engaging for users.

The partnership continues to evolve, with ongoing collaboration with Terra to integrate health and fitness data from third-party sources. This enhances GoodShape’s ability to provide employees with the best advice and support during any work absence.

The GoodShape app not only resonated with users but also exceeded all objectives, leading to a 12-month roadmap for new features and increased project budgets. We’re dedicated to pushing the boundaries of user engagement through intuitive, chat-based interfaces.

This project has allowed us to showcase our technical expertise and customer service. Founder Anthony Main expressed excitement about the app’s positive impact on professionals’ health and productivity.

In conclusion, we thank GoodShape for being an incredible partner and everyone who supported our journey. The App of the Year award recognises our success and shared commitment to making a difference in health and wellbeing. We’re eager to continue working together to create meaningful solutions for the future.
