Tech experts ojo offer charities new app design for £2K

By Nick Batten on August 24, 2017

Ojo solutions, the Wiltshire-based technology experts, have launched a new initiative offering charities the chance to co-design their own mobile app for £2,000 – a price which the firm claims is “a fraction” of what app development would typically cost.

Mobile apps are a powerful way for charities to connect with their supporters and build engaged communities around their causes.

According to ojo, 10 third-sector organisations will be offered the chance to co-create their own, branded mobile presence. The selected charities will be able to shape the new app and its capabilities, drawing on ojo solutions’ design and technical expertise. They’ll also get their app published on the Apple (iPhone and iPad) and Android app stores and receive a year’s free support and maintenance.

Nathan Baranowski, co-founder of ojo solutions, said, “At ojo solutions, we’re passionate about helping charities use technology to get their message out, build stronger supporter relationships and focus more of their funds where these really make a difference. Mobile apps are an important part of this story.

He added, “We’re encouraging as many charities and third-sector organisations as possible to register their interest in this incredible opportunity to grow their digital presence. There’s no commitment at this stage, and we’re looking forward to hearing from a wide range of organisations.”

Any organisation interested can find out more on ojo solutions’ website (www.ojosolutions.com/ojo-my-charity-app). The closing date for registrations is 1 September 2017, with the aim being to launch the apps at the Charity Technology Conference in November 2017.
