Support app Gambless lands ORCHA certification

Gambless, the mobile app which provides anonymous and remote support for problem gamblers, has continued its progress with certification as an ORCHA clinical software. 

It means the firm’s offering is available for distribution to international public health agencies, with ORCHA being an independent medical software evaluation and distribution agency, trusted by national health bodies in 11 countries, including the NHS in the UK.

Maurizio Savino, Gambless’ CEO, commented: “We are very pleased to receive this recognition. ORCHA certification gives our users, as well as health organisations all over the world, assurance that the Gambless mobile app is safe and trustworthy.

“The effectiveness of our app was already known to us. We receive constant messages and emails from problem gamblers who thank us for our support tools. The app, created by our team of psychologists, enables users to learn more about their condition, teaching them how to control their impulses, and thus how to prevent gambling harm.”

Further to its ORCHA approval, Gambless has added Spanish and Japanese languages to its platform, expanding its treatment support for vulnerable users which is available in five languages.

The Gambless app, has ambitions of becoming the international benchmark for gambling harm support – ‘made available to 1.2 billion first language speakers and natives of more than 30 countries’.
