Each year, Prolific North holds an award programme to recognise the achievements of companies, teams and individuals working across the North of England in the creative, digital, tech, media and marketing sectors. This year, Alcimi is one of five finalists for the ‘Tech for Good’ award after creating a data dashboard that can be used to make a positive impact within the charity sector. 

As a digital transformation agency, Alcimi believes in the power of technology for innovation, and this is the reason for the entry of the Champions Awards. They have been shortlisted for the award because of their work constructing the data dashboard as a valuable tool for the National Emergencies Trust. 

On 18th March 2020, the National Emergencies Trust launched the Coronavirus Appeal to get rapid support to those affected by the pandemic. As the National Emergencies Trust’s digital partners and a founding patron, Alcimi began to build an innovative, fully interactive data dashboard to transform thousands of lines of live grants data into valuable, accessible insights for all. This idea was driven by the purpose of making a positive impact where it matters most; preparing for future national emergencies and making impactful change for good.

Ben Sefton, Managing Director of Alcimi, said: 

“It makes me so proud that the team at Alcimi have been shortlisted for the Prolific North Tech for Good award. The team have worked tirelessly designing and developing a bespoke, innovative and fully interactive data visualisation tool that has enabled the National Emergencies Trust to analyse raw data in a simple and efficient way. The tool has been essential to the trust during the coronavirus pandemic and has enabled them to make decisions at speed, ensuring that funds were distributed to those in greatest need.”

Through their assistance in the Coronavirus Appeal, Alcimi reflected on their work as digital partners and thought about what would, digitally, help the National Emergencies Trust for their next appeal. They are delighted that the data dashboard has been so helpful and are proud that this has consequently led to being shortlisted for the Tech for Good award. The awards ceremony is in October where the winner will be announced.
