Coca-Cola App Reaches Mobile Employees

Before every employee (brought or was issued) a mobile device, they were pretty much expected to haul their laptop or utilize the hotel business center while on the road. Such was the case in 2006 when Coca-Cola built an internal travel management system to help enforce compliance on corporate policy around travel requirements. read more

The modernization of health care

The public sector has been notoriously slow in adopting new technologies for administering health care. Only recently have we started hearing about patient electronic health records and iPads being used by doctors and nurses in hospitals.

As much as this is regretful, it also represents a huge opportunity. Much in the same way the third world has adopted wireless technologies to replace its nonexistent telecommunications infrastructure, the public sector could adopt mobile health technologies to replace legacy systems that sometimes date back to the previous century.

The tech community has been quick to recognize this opportunity and has been quietly developing mobile health technologies for both public and private use.

According to, there are currently about 40,000 mobile health apps available for tablets and smartphones, and over 500 health projects worldwide that have a mobile thrust. This organization suggests that mobile apps can cut 25% of elderly care costs, reduce maternal and pre-natal mortality by 30%, reduce data collection costs by 24% reach two times more rural patients per doctor. Mobile apps are also great at providing health information (edu-tainment) and motivational games using positive reinforcement (gamification).

If you use diet or exercise apps such as Calorie Counter or Pocket Yoga, you may already be experiencing mobile health benefits without even realizing it. At least 30% of smartphone users are expected to use wellness apps by 2015.

If you have a great idea for a mobile health application, let us help you put it into action!

The future of gamification and how it can be used in your mobile strategy

Gamification is defined by Wikipedia as « the use of game-thinking and game mechanics in non-game contexts in order to engage users and solve problems. »

Anybody who plays video games is familiar with this approach. Reward points are accumulated until they can be redeemed for reaching a new level, badges, prizes, virtual currency, etc.

Today, gamification is used in many applications such as building engagement and customer loyalty. Foursquare, a location-based mobile app, is popular among retailers by rewarding customers who check in at a store’s physical location. Foursquare users who check in the most often receive a ‘Mayor’ badge or other special promotions specifically for them.

Big brands such as Best Buy and Pepsi have used gamification to reward customers during the Super Bowl. Kraft Foods and P&G reward customers who play mobile games with gift cards and free samples.

But gamification is not limited to consumer goods or retail. There are health-related gamification apps which encourage good habits like exercising.
In Fitocracy, users gain points by working out, participating in group challenges and achieving fitness milestones.

In fact, gamification can be applied to many settings, such as learning (known as edutainment), employee training, human resources, project management, call centres, sustainability, market surveys, etc.

As most of these gamification apps are used on smartphones or tablets, the connection to mobile marketing is undeniable. Talk to one of our Didjet experts about starting off 2013 with your own gamification app.

You smart phone can save your life …. Literally

From car accidents to weather related incidents the more you look around you the more you realise that at any moment you could find yourself in a very difficult if not life threatening situation. And this is where a little preparation and a good charge on your Smartphone can make all the difference. Your Smartphone can become your best survival tool .There are several very good survival apps and information apps available that cover everything from first aid, what to do in an emergency, alert you to events in your area and a whole host of how to reading information for every level of interest. Information is the key to surviving just about anything. Panic is the biggest problem when you are in an emergency situation. Having the knowledge to make the right decision will make sure you keep calm and do the right thing to come out of a dangerous situation.

Everyone has their own comfort level and experience level so there is no one perfect solution to fit all needs. Look at the choices and review your own knowledge to come up with a set of information and apps that will work best for you. Also just downloading them and leaving them there for when you might need them is not enough. Go through the app or the information provided and check that you have any items they suggest and that you review and medical procedures you feel you might need. In the middle of a power outage with young children around you is not the time to learn how to do CPR.

Finally please apply common sense. If you know that you are responsible for small children or a person afflicted with a medical condition no app or book will ever be enough. Hands on training is always the best so taking a Red Cross safety class or a certified course in survival training will always trump a Smartphone.

Below are a series of links to apps and products that you can load up and use. This is just a small sampling of the many apps and information e-books on the subject. Find one that works for you and use it. You will never know when you might need it.

I wish for everyone that no one ever needs to use them but unfortunately it’s not a perfect world so be prepared and be safe.

CPR and Choking app – a series of videos on how to help someone who is chocking or how to apply CPR.

SAS Survivals Guide: If any one knows how to survive in adverse conditions the British SAS Military unit are certainly it. Here is their world famous survival guide in an app:
iOS only:

GotoAid: Do not forget your pet. Here is a medical information app that is good for both two legged and four legged survivalists.
