Newsroom Communication

Storyshaker

Thanks to the team at Riwers, we were able to develop our own product from a side project of our agency within a short period of time, which received a lot of impetus with modern software, fast development sprints and foresight in technological development.

We are enormously satisfied with the cooperation with Riwers.
