As we are approaching another brand new page of our journey, that is the year 2018, we’re looking back to the past twelve months of challenges and accomplishments. From launching new products, hosting online and offline community events, and organizing charity projects with NGOs in Vietnam, NIFTIT is proud to continuously moving forward and growing as a solid team of experts in this industry while giving back to the community at the same time.

2017 Highlights

Products 

NIFTIT worked on great products that are set to gain traction for 2018. 

NIFTIT Jumpstart Package

UPTEAMIST

Last but not least is UPTEAMIST, our first ever SAAS platform deployed in December 2017. Upteamist is an application on Office 365 which allows the creation and management of true intranets for your organization. It utilizes Microsoft’s Azure Active Directory for user authentication. If you are using Office 365, then you are one click away from joining your intranet site. Upteamist features a minimalist platform that ensures your team can access the right information quickly and easily. No headaches and no heavy management required. Get the free trial for your team here.

Communities & Webinars 

In June 2017, NIFTIT launched a webinar series on Microsoft Office 365 and its products. It is a great way to share some of our knowledge and news about the technical community. Moreover, our regular SharePoint meetups in Ho Chi Minh City and Hong Kong are still gaining members and the team at NIFTIT is incredibly dedicated to providing such dynamism to the community. 

GIFTIT 

NIFTIT was able to provide probono engagement to some amazing organizations this year. One that we are especially proud of is our collaboration with Da Nha. Da Nha is an NGO based in Lam Dong Province, Vietnam, that aims to help marginalized and vulnerable groups by providing sustainable development. Active since November 2000, Da Nha started their work in 2013 by developing agricultural projects for the ethnic minorities of K’ho Ma and Tay. Today, the non-profit organization has expanded their activities to the areas of education, healthcare, sanitation, eco-system protection, and more. 

pro-bono Da Nha Project

Da Nha came to NIFTIT looking to have a public website designed and developed that would promote their brand. They wanted a site that would showcase their amazing projects across the country in an effort to increase both donations and sales of their organic products.   

NIFTIT Team

At NIFTIT, we always strive to provide the best service for our clients – and to do that, we’re investing in our team to be the best at what they do. This year, we helped few members of our team to get certifications in various technical fields (Microsoft Azure certification, AWS certification, and more). We also encourage everyone to always be curious and seek for self-improvement by providing access to online resources, onsite training and books. Additionally, we’re always looking for fresh talent to join our team so we restarted our partnership program with universities in Vietnam and France. We’ve been getting some of the best interns at our Ho Chi Minh City office. You can read about one of our intern journey at NIFTIT here.

2018 Roadmap

Consolidate Our Consulting Services

In our early years, NIFTIT has explored various stacks and technologies. We developed great applications on platforms such as Azure Clouds and Microsoft Office 365. With these experts in our belt, we are confident to work on more web applications projects that offer flexibility and reliability to our clients (and also at a competitive price).
