An Award Winning night at the Second Edition of the Malta Commuications Authority eBusiness Awards.

For the second consecutive year, we are proud to take home the Best Use of Social Media Award through our CSR initiative on Facebook for the Malta Community Chest Fund - L-Istrina Donation Application.

Managing Director Kenneth Bone was honoured to receive this award from Dr Carl James Debono, Deputy Dean of the Faculty of ICT at the University of Malta, which reconfirms Seasus as the leading innovator in the social media market in terms of corporate social media marketing and technologies. 

Receiving the award for the second year running makes us more determined than ever before to keep striving in this area and remaining ahead of competition. We kept last year's promise to continue with our research and innovation programmes in 2012 and the results speak for themselves. 

Special thanks goes to all our clients who believe in our capabilities, to our energetic staff who deliver a great service and to the MCA for this initiative.

L-Istrina 2011 Donation App is a unique application developed for the Facebook platform, conceptualised and developed by Seasus Limited, enabling Facebook members to make donations online via debit or credit cards in a secure environment, just like on an e-commerce site. Way back in 2010 Seasus thought it would be a good idea for Facebook users to have a very original way of donating money to L-Istrina, i.e. by passing funds online via debit/credit cards in a secure environment. The main aim was to provide an easy way for expatriates and Maltese living abroad to participate in the yearly event and give their contribution. The idea was immediately welcomed by the Malta Community Chest Fund and during the 13 hour TV marathon during 2010, the Facebook users donated over  €13,000 through the application. The app was reconfirmed for the 2011 Campaign, aiming for bigger and better results. Infact the popularity increased, attracting 6,000 users and raising €33,000 in donations via the world’s largest social network – a one-of-a-kind activity. Seasus provides MCCF with the latest web technologies within a secure environment for peace of mind when donating online via the Seasus PCI Certified payment gateway. 

Through its CSR programme, Seasus supports charities including the Malta Community Chest Fund through L-Istrina app.

Seasus' Facebook app concepts have been applied to various markets including banking, jewellery, gaming, politics, news, entertainment and property.
