Vesuvius Wins Award For Best Use of Mobile App

Black Sun’s work with Vesuvius on the development and launch of the V.LINK app was awarded bronze for ‘Best Use of mobile or apps’ at the inaugural Internal Communications and Engagement Awards.

The awards night in Central London recognised the best in internal communications and showcases the ongoing commitment companies across Europe are making to improve their relationships with employees.

With 11,000 employees worldwide, many without access to email, we had to reinvent the way the company engaged with its workforce. Black Sun helped Vesuvius overcome the challenge by creating a branded app called V.LINK that enabled communications from the top down while also encouraging peer to peer collaboration.

As it was a priority to modernise the way the company communicated to their employees, one judge commented on the “Excellent approach to their challenge and link to their digital strategy”.

We are thrilled for Vesuvius on this achievement and the ongoing success of the app since its launch.
