Mxit launched their Preferred Developer Program (PDP) today featuring eight charter members including NATIVE, Kazazoom and Deloitte Digital RSA.
Andy Volk, VP of Developer Relations at Mxit, says, â€œWe created the PDP with a long-term goal to recognize and reward the best developers focused on building apps for third parties from our growing community.â€
â€œThe program is designed to connect people who want custom Mxit apps built with the best developers available for hire. Itâ€™s also a great opportunity for us to acknowledge some of the best developers on Mxit who continue to build on their knowledge and insight of what works,â€ says Volk.
Since the social network embraced its open platform strategy in 2012, it has seen an increasing need for excellent developers who can design, build and manage fully integrated and engaging applications for clients such as Media 24, Colgate and a number of South African financial institutions.
â€œIn the past, the challenge for clients has been finding the right people to build their apps. The introduction of our Preferred Developer Directory, which lists developersâ€™ details as well as their Mxit portfolios, solves that by helping clients find the right developer for their needs,â€ says Volk.
The eight charter members of the PDP have committed to build engaging and scalable applications and communities on Mxit for their clients.Â The developers are Bazooka Games, Cytrus, Deloitte Digital RSA, Harsi Games, INESSOFT, Kazazoom, NATIVE and Springfisher.
â€œThese developers have excellent track records as innovators who know how to create winning client solutions, and we wanted to highlight them for prospective clients,â€ says Volk.
Mxit will grow the PDP program members as more developers apply. Those wanting to join the program can go to pdp.mxit.comÂ for more information.
