Dr Stuart McKay, Senior KTP Manager at UWS, said, “As an employer committed to the health and wellbeing of our staff and students, Frog Systems’ message is one that resonates with us. Our award-winning AI and Machine Learning knowledge is being applied to develop the next generation of Frog Systems’ wellness software platform; streamlining both content production and service delivery, providing greater insight for platform adopters and, critically, an enhanced end user experience.”
Frog Systems is based at Bellahouston Business Centre in Glasgow. The KTP project with UWS has been welcomed by the local MP.
Commenting, Alison Thewliss MP said: “It’s great to see local business Frog Systems teaming with up with the University of the West of Scotland to further enhance its mental health and wellbeing services.
“For many of us, the pandemic has changed the way that we work, with more time spent away from family, friends, colleagues and stakeholders. Platforms such as that being developed by Frog Systems seek to ensure that people can communicate more easily and effectively, and that tailored support packages can be offered to the individual.
“These emerging technologies are very welcome, and it’s especially encouraging to see this announcement coming during mental health awareness week.
“I wish the company all the very best in their future endeavours and look forward to visiting them at some point in the future.”
Knowledge Transfer Partnerships aim to help businesses improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge, technology, and skills within the UK knowledge base.
Dr Gerry Black, Senior Knowledge Transfer Adviser at KTN, said: “I am delighted to have supported Frog Systems to win KTP funding and am excited to see them working with their partners at UWS to embed artificial intelligence into their video-led wellness platform.”
Earlier this year Frog Systems helped client Sussex Cricket score a world first as it became the first professional sports club in the world to launch a community mental health and wellbeing platform. The KTP project will develop the platform further as a fully integrated service offering for commercial, government and not-for-profit organisations in the UK and internationally.
