We’re delighted to announce that our project in partnership with the London Borough of Redbridge, the Ilford Blueprint (visit the website or download a Case Study (PDF)), has won a Socitim 2010 Local Government IT Excellence Award for Supplier Excellence at the Socitim Annual Conference in Brighton. The competition highlights public sector IT projects that improve the efficiency and delivery of services within local communities.
The Ilford Blueprint Online – which already created a major splash at the Property Lynx conference – is a web-based marketing tool that incorporates 3D visualisation of development potential in the borough using Virtual Viewing’s Massive Scale Modelling technology. Socitm said the project team has combined web based commerce and gaming technology with planning policy and regeneration, to promote development opportunity sites identified in Ilford’s Area Action Plan.

Responsible for inward investment and investor development, North London Business (NLB) is funded by both the London Development Agency and by Boroughs, and runs Property Linx conferences focused on maximising investment in infrastructure, residential and mixed used developments and allowing Boroughs to profile themselves to the investment community. Each conference attracts 200-350 invited property professionals, developers, agents, and landowners.
The most recent Property Linx conference, which was expanded to include an “Agents, Consultants and Contractors” corner, was held on 24 June 2010 with a focus on one of Virtual Viewing’s web development and 3d city modelling clients – the London Borough of Redbridge. Senior Borough politicians and staff from the Borough’s Planning and Regeneration team were among speakers at the event, which shone a spotlight on their plans for the development of Ilford Town Centre, its retail offering, quality of life and excellent transport connectivity.
London Borough of Redbridge also used the event to launch a new website (opens in a new browser window), developed through a partnership with Virtual Viewing, that specifically targets property and investment professionals.
Fully manageable through our OSCAR content management solution, the fully bespoke site will enable the Borough to provide a wealth of up-to-date information on the local area (including demographic data and profiles of different property sectors).

If you follow the media’s coverage of the media itself, you’ll be aware of plans for some daily newspapers – currently available to read pretty much in their entirety free of charge online – to put their content behind ‘paywalls’. There are complex business reasons at play: newspapers are struggling financially as more of us get our news from the web. Google and other search engines make it easy to browse not just the country’s but the world’s newspapers in an instant. Indeed, people use Google – making Google profitable – to access newspapers online, who make nothing from the transaction. Old business models are being outstripped not just by technology, but by the way we use it.
But listening to James Hewitt, editor of The Times, being interviewed on The Today Programme recently, he raised a point that is hugely relevant to all websites – whether or not they charge for access beyond their first page. That first page – usually your Home Page – is not just a gateway: it’s also a lure to tempt people to explore further, and an advertisement for what they will find inside. Hewitt drew the comparison of a newsstand: customers see only the front page – and usually just the top half of it. That view must tempt them to buy the paper, confident about its content.
