Challenge

Global Rank Softwareentwicklung UG chose Bamboo Agile to deliver a mobile rankings app that required integration with multiple external API’s, including Steam, Google Places, and OpenStreetMap, and also real-time user tracking plus location search and storage over the entire OSM database.
