Client Testimonial

We engaged to design and produce a smartphone app specifically for our surgical conference and the result was not only an outstanding success but was delivered on time and on budget.  Amongst its many excellent features was a live web-based audience-voting system that worked very well and enhanced the interactive elements of our conference. Researchactive were present throughout the conference and provided excellent technical support throughout. We would be very happy to work with them again in the future.
