The challenge

There was a growing need for using CBS in order to prevent the outbreaks around the world, but existing tools used by Norwegian Red Cross weren’t enough in terms of user experience, scalability and expandability. To answer that need, we created a new platform from scratch, using the most recent and solid technologies that can meet the organization’s expectations and be used world-wide by Red Cross volunteers.

Service Used

We provided qualified engineers responsible for implementing the application processes, crafting the user interface and testing. We used Microsoft Azure cloud to host .NET applications, server-less functions and other infrastructure related components of the project. For managing the work we used Azure DevOps.
