About the project

Our cooperation began in March of 2020. The customer approached Abto Software to obtain additional engineers to facilitate the migration of the existing web fitness solution into the cloud. Additionally, they required mobile application development experts to help expand their solution’s functionality by developing native Android and iOS apps. 

Finally, part of the client’s business strategy was expanding their market reach with a customizable SaaS solution. Abto Software provided experienced engineers who have integrated and now cooperate with the client’s three separate teams: the Web team, the Mobile team, and the SaaS team.
