Case studies - The Union


Creating new technologies to meet evolving requirements


A worldwide charity based in Europe with a focus on solving public health issues affecting people in impoverished areas, The Union are experts in respiratory systems. They partner closely with governments and other organisations to share scientific evidence for solutions to lung health issues.

The charity awards several prizes at their annual awards ceremony for significant contributions to key areas of research in public health. Members of the public nominate candidates for the Awards Board to review and vote upon, before shortlists and winners are selected.

We go beyond both our customers' specifications and expectations


The Union awards prizes across various categories every year, therefore a historical nominating and voting system was already in place. The requirements of the Union are constantly evolving, and this means that each year the award categories, nominations, and voting procedures differ from previous years.

The Union wanted to automate and modernise their awards processes as much as possible to increase efficiencies, reduce costs, and enable the awards to grow.

The system would require an open, easy to access public nomination and voting process, connected to a secure awarding board review system capable of collaboration and versioning, backed up by a detailed administration area.

Complex features and functions on mission critical systems with simple and intuitive user experiences.


Dotfive successfully developed and implemented a new nominations and voting system that provided all of the functionality required and employed up-to-date technology that ensured evolving requirements could be swiftly and simply implemented as needed.

The system uses complex and sophisticated code to create a very simple and intuitive user experience, standardising the public-facing nominations processes. This simple user interface backed up by complex code to create rich functions is also carried over into the voting panel area, simplifying the processes for judges.

We went beyond expectations by delivering a multi-platform system to ensure optimal convenience for all users. Feedback has been extremely positive and the system continues to deliver savings.
