Shortlist for Fathom and Flender at Spider Awards 2018By Michelle McFadden
The Fathom team are getting excited. One of the biggest events in the UX calendar in Ireland – the 2018 Spider Awards – is taking place on Thursday evening at the RDS in Dublin and we’ve been nominated in two categories.
Fathom’s user experience project for Flender’s app is a finalist in the International Growth category. Flender enables businesses and consumers to lend and borrow money through an app that links in with social network connections.
Fathom worked alongside Flender to evolve the application from a partially built technology platform to a complete product with a beautiful user experience and user journey from end to end. The results have been outstanding. Following the launch of the improved user experience, Flender sales went from zero in March 2017 to over €4.6m as of November 2018, with over 270 jobs created.
Fathom is also a finalist in the Small Agency of the Year category. In the seven years since Fathom was founded, the business has grown to 10 people and boasts among its clients some of the best–known brands in Ireland (AIB, firmus, Bord Bia, Kingspan, Permanent TSB, Three, Tesco Mobile, PSNI) as well as the most exciting apps and start–ups growing today (Flender, Rubicoin, Plotbox, Digital Printing). Our UK footprint is also growing, with significant contracts with the Met Office and NHS Scotland.
All the best to the Fathom and Flender teams for Thursday evening – we’ll be back to report on the results.
