Microsoft faced a need to improve the in-house communication system Skype for Business by creating a mobile app with extra functions. The challenge was to create a messenger and to integrate it into the existing system, while adding new features to it. Data privacy was a priority for the customer, because confidential documents were exchanged through the messenger. It was also important to save all the data when uninstalling the messenger on the device.


The features for more convenient communication were developed, including: - the ability to transfer and store files on the server was developed - voice messages were added for quicker communication - the feature of creating news channels was introduced (The customer needed a tool to demonstrate the company news.) - mandatory channels for familiarization and channels that employees could subscribe to according to their interests in order to follow training events or sports classes from Microsoft were formed.


Developed corporate messenger in line with high security standards. Increased employee engagement and facilitated communication through gamification and voting features. Integrations with Skype and Microsoft internal services Microsoft has received a safe messenger able to compete with alternative modern solutions and to install in the customer’s framework. 5,000+ employees communicate in the app; the human resource policy of the company is formed according to the data collected from the messenger. The developers led by Valeriy Kotelov showed themselves as a team of professionals during the work on the project, successfully solved all the tasks and achieved the project goal.
