TravelWise App Shortlisted for Two Awards

The TravelWise smartphone app developed by Púca for Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs has been shortlisted by two awarding bodies, Ireland eGovernment and Tech Excellence.

TravelWise App Shortlisted for Two Awards

The TravelWise App introduced a whole new platform for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to share travel-related information, advisories and consular details for Irish Citizens travelling to more than 200 countries.

For the app development process Púca had to make use of clever UX and UI decisions to not overwhelm users. This included a new colour-coded security rating to easily digest important information at a glance. Other features added were automatic push notifications to users when the status of country changed while also having the ability to use the app offline reducing data costs when travelling overseas.


We are delighted to have been selected to work on this project with Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The team here at Púca are proud of the final product and its recognition by the Ireland eGovernment and Tech Excellence judges.
