What Being a Google Developers Certified Agency Means to Us

Mobile / Technology

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. And now, we are thrilled to announce that Raizlabs has been recognized as a certified Google Developer Agency for the third year in a row. 

As part of the Google Developers Agency Program, Raizlabs and Rightpoint by extension receive dedicated training and access to the latest products and APIs from Google.

As part of the Google Developers Agency program, Rightpoint 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 our 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.

Apps We’ve Made with our Partners

We have 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 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.
