CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom – John Henry Group’s Geo-sight technology took a bronze award at the first 2015 Digital Awards, held in St Ives, Cambridge, last night (November 19).
Attracting more than 50 business finalists from across 13 different categories, Geo-sight came third in the ‘Best App’ category – going head to head with five other finalists.
Geo-sight, which is a remote monitoring tool which works as a simple to use app on major smartphones like Blackberrys, Androids and iPhones, takes advantage of the devices’ cameras and sends a captured image through to a ‘remote cloud’ at John Henry Group head office in Cambridge, which in turn, is monitored for health, safety and quality purposes.
Geo-sight tracks the location of the image and alerts (warnings) can be set up from inside the cloud system to further monitor compliance and manage issues on site or whereever the user has submitted the picture from.
The Geo-sight app, which is already being used across John Henry Group’s national network contracts, is now also available to download in the app store and will also help protect other business’ interests, based on the knowledge acquired through rigorous trials at John Henry Group.

“We are delighted to have been nominated as finalists and even more proud to have picked up the award, it’s a great achievement for an app that was developed almost entirely in-house by our technology teams at John Henry Group,” said John Cherijan, solutions architect at John Henry Group, who currently oversees the product’s ongoing development.
“Geo-sight is a fantastic tool which has really made a difference to us as a business, reducing danger risks on site, helping us mitigate against potential fines for road works and ultimatel saving us money and lowering our carbon footprint through remote monitoring.”
