“The demand for downloads of our app is so huge that we had to rebuild our server infrastructure completely from scratch. Ensuring accessibility all around the world was a challenge.” says Peter Pecho, Co-Founder and Research & Development Director at Sygic.

“With so many customers asking questions, it was necessary to rethink the way we engage with our community. We brought our support onto an open forum. It is now much easier for users to interact with the Sygic team as well as with each other.” says Simona Parnicka, Community Supervisor at Sygic.
