We’re delighted to share that our Google Developers Agency Program is growing from strength to strength with the launch of our second batch of Certified partners in India. With this launch we now have six certified partner agencies who have proficiency in building high quality user experiences on various platforms.
A brief history of the Agency Program
We started the Developers Agency Program in 2015 with the aim of working with leading software consultancies around the world. Our goal was simple: empower these developers who have a large impact on the ecosystem through the work with their major clients.
In last year alone the program has impacted more than 100 apps in India developed by these agencies with cumulative count of over 100 million users. Globally, we have expanded the program to over 10 countries working with more than 100 developer agencies. As part of this program, developer agencies receive the following benefits:
- Training on latest Google APIs, developer technologies and best practices
- Invitations to events specially designed for software development agencies
- Recognition and showcase opportunities
- Participation in Early Access programs
- 1:1 online support from Google
- UX reviews for apps
Additionally, agencies which are part of the program, demonstrate expertise in using Google technologies and have a successful track record of building high quality apps in addition to being recognized as Google Developers Certified Agency.
Speaking about the benefits of a program like this, Shyamal Mehta, Co-Founder, Techjini a Google certified agency said, “It is great to be a part of Google Developer Program as it has opened channels to work directly with Google engineers. There is a growing demand to build visually appealing apps that can also deliver a great user experience even in poor network conditions. We encountered this challenge while developing Pepperfry app which is visually heavy app, being part of the network allowed us to work hand in hand with the Google developer advocates and support team to identify and solve performance roadblocks and deliver a product which offers a great user experience”.
