Wellington tech developer scores London award

Wellington mobile developer Touchtech, in collaboration with Cognition Education's Wavelength, won Silver for the Best Use of Mobile Learning Award at the annual Learning Technologies Awards, held in London last month.


HITO VUE, the winning platform designed by Wavelength in collaboration with the New Zealand Hairdressing Industry Training Organisation and Touchtech, was specifically created for trainee hairdressers. It introduces a technological substitute to an environment predominantly driven by paper-based portfolios and hands-on training. 

HITO VUE has received fantastic user feedback, with trainee hairdressers able to learn, interact and submit, all on one intuitive mobile app.  

These Awards have been recognising excellence in learning technologies since 2005. Each year the awards receive over 400 international entries, each from a variety of sectors, including retail, leisure, communications and more. 
The standard of competition this year was high, with winners including PwC and Marks and Spencer.
