Its been a good week here at Wheatley. We've reached Friday with a bounce, thanks to the hard work of our team, recieving not one, but two rather lovely acolades.
On Tuesday and Wednesday our Development Manager Stephen Lewis and R&D Manager Pete Reeves took part in hAQUAthon2018 which was organised by the lovely Decision Lab, alongside Affinity Water, WSUP, Artesia, Twenty65 and Future Water Association.
Stephen and Pete joined a team which became known as "Christopher Waters" (there isn't enough space in this news article to explain why!) and after two long days of thinking, innovating and coding they designed an app that scooped the top prize! To meet the challenge given the team came up with an idea that helps with customer engagement regarding water quality issues and could be used in parts of the world where there is water poverty. The judges were impressed with their prototype and the ease in which information could be shared. Well done guys!
On Wednesday evening some of the Wheatley team attended the DevelopHER Awards, as Kat from our Test team was nominated for the Tester Award. Guess what! Kat won too! Fantastic work Kat - we're very proud of you!
