We are thrilled to announce that The Makaton Charity has recently received the iMIS Great Things Award 2021.

Software company Advanced Solutions International (ASI) is the developer of a member engagement system called iMIS, which is part of The Makaton Charity’s new digital offering. The Great Things Awards are based on ASI's mission to "Help People Achieve Great Things Through Innovative Solutions". ASI recognises iMIS clients who have demonstrated excellence in using iMIS to improve operational efficiency, advance their mission and achieve 'great things’. 

In August 2020, The Makaton Charity launched the new Makaton Membership and website, utilising iMIS technology to provide a simple and smooth user journey. Stephen Hall (CEO of The Makaton Charity) said: "The integration capability of the iMIS system, which, like Lego, allows you to connect different systems and technologies together, is greatly improving user experience and accessibility.”

The launch of the Makaton Membership has been revolutionary for the Makaton community as it gives access to Makaton at your fingertips 24/7. This empowers people with communication difficulties through giving core Makaton users and their support network digital access to essential Makaton vocabulary, which can help to overcome frustration and promote inclusion. Since the launch last year, over 30,000 new members have joined, and we look forward to another innovative year as we develop our digital offer, ensuring everyone living with learning or communication difficulties has the tools and resources they need to understand and be understood.

Makaton Membership. Makaton at your fingertips…24/7
