Infoxchange wins national and international awards
We have had a bumper week here at Infoxchange, winning a national and international award for two of our major digital inclusion projects.
Ask Izzy, our mobile website that allows people who are homeless or at risk to search more than 350 000 services nation-wide, has received the national iAward for community services.
Run by the Australian Information Industry Association, the iAwards recognise leading technology innovation that is having a positive impact in the community.
Receiving a merit at the Victorian iAwards, we competed against other merit recipients and award winners from across the country to take out the national award. With over 200 000 searches since January and a gold at the Design100 Melbourne Design Awards, Ask Izzy was a strong contender.
