Apps that help support the community

If you’re looking to help your community, but don’t have money to spare at the moment, you can still provide assistance. We’ve found a selection of apps that are great for helping you to help others, without costing you a penny.

Be My Eyes (available from the Play Store and the Apple Store)

Be My Eyes is designed to help those who are blind or visually impaired, by connecting them with sighted volunteers for assistance visually. This is achieved through the app by the blind or low sighted person requesting assistance, and a video call is started between themselves and a volunteer. Sighted volunteers can then help the blind or low-sighted person distinguish anything from expiration dates to instructions.

You can get this app on Android and iPhone. If you speak multiple languages, Be My Eyes is also looking for volunteers to help them translate the application into different languages.

Bright Sky (available from the Play Store and the Apple Store)

Bright Sky is an application designed to help victims of domestic abuse, as well as assist those looking to help friends and family who they suspect could be victims of domestic abuse. The application contains a wealth of information to help you identify the signs of domestic abuse, as well as how to respond to a domestic abuse victim, and assist someone in finding a safe route to support. 

This app is available on Android and iPhone, and is available in 5 languages: English, Urdu, Punjabi, Polish and Welsh. 

Game Changer (Sign up to download the application)

Game Changer is a research project within an application, with the aim of understanding dementia. All users need to do is play a five minute ‘brain game’ every day, for a month. It is being led by the University of Oxford, and it is designed to analyse how brains work and memory changes over time. The goal for this research is to be able to spot the early changes in the brains of people with dementia in the future, in order to develop new treatments.

To take part and get the app, you need to register your interest by clicking the green button which reads ‘Sign up to Game Changer’.

Charity Miles (available from the Play Store and the Apple Store)

Charity Miles is an app which turns the miles that you walk, run or cycle into money for your chosen charity. There are over 50 charities to choose from that you can donate your miles to, and so far users have generated over $2.5m for good causes. The app generates donations through business partners, who donate part of their advertising budget to the application. This is then used to fund the donations made when users generate miles.

Businesses can also sign up for the Employee Empowerment Program, where you can create a private company team, and even sponsor your employees to help contribute towards their chosen charity.  

To get started, scan the QR code that is listed on their website. From there, you can download the app, create an account and start walking, running or cycling for your chosen charity.

The Transcendit Way

Transcendit understand that when you choose to work with us, whether we're taking care of your IT, app or web development, you're trusting us with part of your business. So whether we're looking after your computers, phone systems or servers we always do things 'the Transcendit way'.

The whole of our team adhere to the same values, beliefs and policies - the principles that were written when Transcendit first formed in 2000. Whether you come to us for cloud services or recovery backup you can be confident that you'll always receive the same excellent service.

The Transcendit way outlines how we do business; following the same straightforward principles with every client and customer, regardless of how big or small they may be.

That means we get to know you and your business. We offer you a friendly, professional and efficient service, and we'll always be honest with you.
We understand that not everybody speaks fluent IT, so we try to explain things in a way that is simple and clear. We always spend as much time as is necessary explaining things to you.
If you need to talk to us about something, no matter how insignificant, we are only ever a phone call away – and we’re never too busy to make you a cup of tea and have a sit down with you in person.
We understand how frustrating it can be when things are late. When we schedule an appointment with you, we are there when you’re expecting us. If something prevents us from getting there, we always call you in advance to let you know.
Sometimes things can go wrong, but we never lie to you or try to cover something up. If things go askew we tell you what’s happened and how we plan to prevent it affecting your business.
We want you to continuously benefit from working with us. We regularly discuss your business and make suggestions for improving systems and processes wherever we can – but we never try to push you into a purchase.
When we quote a fixed price, that's always the amount we charge – you won’t find any nasty surprises on a bill from us. If you are paying by time and materials, we inform you if our approximations could change.
We understand the importance of privacy for your business and your customers. We respect the confidentiality of your data, and we will never pass on your information to third parties.
We appreciate it when you take the time to give us feedback. A system called CustomerSure records our client's responses, so you can trust that our reviews are from real people.

We have taken on some account managers from our local competitors, and by all accounts Paradigm is leagues ahead of anything else out there. The benefit it is giving our business from both an account manager's point of view and the back of house administrative aspect is fantastic. Ross Gill, IU Consult
