Added business values by Syndicode
Syndicode’s dedicated developers joined the product development team and helped to improve apps’ functionality. Along with Syndicode’s designers who jumped into Kinderlime project a bit later, they empowered the product’s performance and UI.
Since then, Kinderlime received many awards, increased the number of schools which use the app, and have been acquired by a bigger company.
The client wanted a new version of Kinderlime that could be scalable and fast. So, Syndicode made it possible to speed up Kinderlime web server response time and reach the brand new quality of the existing functionality
- We built a whole new scalable API for Kinderlime website and mobile apps.
- Syndicode updated the admin panel functionality that support team uses for handling problems and for some internal purposes.
- Our UI/UX designers helped to improve Kinderlime website by making it more appealing and functional.
