What Being a Google Developers Certified Agency Means to Us

Google Certified Developer Agency

When Raizlabs, a Rightpoint company, became the first agency in North America to be inducted into the Google Developers Agency Program in 2016, we were over the moon. At the time, it introduced us to a whole new world of working directly with Google. It gave our developers access to agency events, enabled our design team to partner with their experts, empowered our product managers to try new things, and introduced our client partners to a host of new opportunities. And now, we are thrilled to announce Raizlabs has been recognized as a certified Google Developers Agency for the third year in a row. Read the full press release here.

What It Means

As part of the Google Developers Agency program, Raizlabs and Rightpoint by extension will receive dedicated training and access to the latest products and APIs from Google. Designed to help software development agencies stand out from competitors, the program supports Raizlabs’ dedication to its clients to deliver the best mobile apps to meet customer needs. 

Being certified is important to us, not just in the access it affords, but in the trust Google has placed in us to uphold their standards. This trust allows us to help usher in a new era of apps and innovative technologies. We enable companies exploring Android for the first time as well as veterans in the space to build and design software and put their products in the hands of millions of users.

As an early adopter of the Android platform and creator of hundreds of award-winning apps, Raizlabs is one of the first 13 companies in the world to be certified under the program and our recertification shows the continued commitment to quality. We get to partner with clients who are passionate about solving real human problems, who want to change the world for the better, and who want to work with us to do it.

Apps We’ve Made with our Partners

Raizlabs has launched hundreds of apps, including many that have topped the App Store charts for their innovation and design. As part of maintaining our standing in the agency program, each year we’re asked to showcase some of the work we’ve done that demonstrates our continued excellence. It also enables us to brag to Google about our clients and share their amazing apps.

Apps like Flywheel, where we created a custom Chromecast app to stream content from a phone or tablet to a home theater to closely replicate the in-studio exercise experience that Flywheel customers know and love.

Or PULLL, where we partnered with Pelotonia to create an app to raise funds to fight cancer. Not only did we design and build the app, but our team joined in the annual fundraiser ride in Columbus, Ohio that helped contribute $26.2 Million dollars for cancer research.

And we would be remiss if we didn’t give a shout out to B&H Photo’s app where we did groundbreaking design work, winning  Google’s first-ever Material Design Award at Google I/O.

Maintaining our Partnership with Google

Welcomed back for the third year in a row, we are celebrating the recognition from Google and the great work that has helped us remain on this short list of agencies that have demonstrated excellence in design, development, innovation, and community participation around the globe. This is only possible because of the great people we work with, the dedicated teams who create wonderful products, and the passionate partners who share our vision for the future.
