To strengthen the association of our software product, the Global Alerting Platform (GAP), with two10degrees, we have given GAP a new brand identity.
GAP has grown from strength to strength since it was first launched by the two10degrees team 5 years ago.
The brand identity has been designed to support a new suite of applications to be launched in the coming months.
“We love the new brand identity and hope that it will provide a clear and consistent message that GAP is a product of two10degrees. We’re still the same great team offering the same great service – GAP’s just had a slight makeover.”
Charlotte Prodger, Marketing & Communications Manager
Please let us know what you think about the new brand identity (and our new website) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
This evening, 27th July 2016, 8 RBS Graduate students are embarking on a 24-hour charity contest as part of the RBS Anniversary Challenge. The challenge involves teams of graduates across the UK competing to raise the most money in 24 hours for the charity Move On. One group hopes to raise donations by embarking on a 50 mile walk from Glasgow Central Station to Edinburgh.
Jack Garvin, a RBS graduate, contacted two10degrees to ask if they would support his challenge and provide him with a mobile tracking system to track his team’s progress from Glasgow to Edinburgh. Two10degrees will be providing Jack access to their Global Alerting Platform (GAP) Lone Worker mobile app. The device will send its position regularly and will be shown on a live public map.
“I thought it would be great if people could track our progress. I thought it would be good for our friends, families and supporters to monitor our progress, and I’m hoping this will generate more donations!”
Jack Garvin, RBS Graduate
Move On works in Scotland to unlock the potential of vulnerable young people and those affected by homelessness in order to improve their lives. Move On embeds the “teach a man to fish” philosophy through employability activity, education, money/debt advice, mentoring, and volunteering and employability opportunity. The team of graduates will be walking through the night to really bring alive the sleeping rough theme and will provide updates via social media.
“We wanted to do something that really tested our abilities and put ourselves in the mind-set of people who have to face hard times every day of their lives! We would really appreciate any support for this great cause, as it is a competition only donations between Wednesday 27th 5pm – Thursday 28th 5pm will be counted.”
Jack Garvin, RBS Graduate
The adventurous walking team is made up of Alessandro Bettiol, Matt Bidlake, Denis Boscovich, Jake Brown, Rebecca Cooper, Jack Garvin, Gillian Kelly and Samir Khoudi. You can track their progress by clicking this link.
“We’re thrilled to be supporting Jack and the rest of his team, as well as the other teams taking part in the RBS Anniversary Challenge across the UK. I look forward to following their progress.”
Charlotte Prodger, Marketing & Communications Manager, two10degrees

From 11 July 2016, the two10degrees team were lucky enough to be joined by East Bergholt High School student, Cami Hawes-Harlow, for a work experience placement.
Further to this, Cami also wrote a Python script that converted CSV raw data from the Police Crime statistics website, into JSON, which is much more useful for building web apps. Writing this code meant she will be able to download, convert and use the data for any region and date range, without having to make any changes to her code.
“We wish Cami the best of luck for the future. She did some great work while she was here and demonstrated a natural flair for programming. She was very capable and had very little trouble completing the tasks I set her. She should be very proud of what she managed to achieve in such a short period of time.”
Liam Daley, Consultant, two10degrees
Two10degrees believes “there’s more to software than writing code” and recognises the importance of giving back to the community by nurturing the talent of young people. To find out more information on work experience placements, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two10degrees is proud to announce that the Global Alerting Platform (GAP) Portal has been translated into Russian.
Using native-speaker translators, two10degrees have translated their portal and support documentation for their Russian-speaking partners and customers.
"The world grows smaller every day. We have partners, customers and users all over the world so it is important that our software can be translated to suit the needs of our global users, and so they can get the most out of the software.”
