Vm.pl co-creates leading testing platform with TestDaF-Institut




At vm.pl we do not only speak German, learn German but now thanks to our new client, TestDaF-Institut from Bochum, we are going to TEST your German. This school year we start a project where our new team of German-speaking Java wizards will develop the most popular platform for testing German as a foreign language.

As our language skills are getting better and better every day (we do work hard on them), we hope to soon use the same testing platform that we will be developing to test our very own Deutschkenntnisse*

C# project kickoff in Dresden with Qoniac




We are pleased to inform you that we have recently started another big project. Our new client – Qoniac - is the fastest growing IT company in Dresden, delivering process optimization & control solutions for the cutting-edge semiconductor industry there.

Currently four of our developers are working on a project there with .NET technology. Their main task is to assist the German team in the refactoring of the present application to become more flexible and scalable. One result of the cooperation is going to be an improvement in the production process of the micro-chips used in the most popular cell phone brands. We are all very excited about this!

What a busy and roaring spring!




In just seven days from receiving our first enquiry we were able to kick off a new project (2 developers) alongside client from Mannheim with Angular 2.0 in Cologne, Germany.

We first spent 2 days in client’s office and agreed on the terms and conditions as well as got introduced to the project and our partners. After that, our developers took over in a sprint here in our office in Wrocław where they work in a closely-knit SCRUM team alongside our partners.

We love the ride!

VM.PL Named Top Contender in New Industry Research

This February, the B2B ratings & reviews platform, Clutch.co, updated their research on Top Poland Developers. We are delighted to announce that VM.PL was named a top contender amongst a cohort of 34 different suppliers.

Clutch’s proprietary scoring methodology evaluates services firms based on dozens of quantitative and qualitative factors. Things like published case studies, industry awards and accolades, relevant press coverage, and contributions to the wider marketplace as thought leaders, are taken into account before analysts confirm a supplier’s listing on the platform.




Most importantly, however, are the reviews they publish. Every verified review is the result of an actual interview between an analyst and a current or past client of ours. The feedback they have share goes well beyond a seal of approval. While most of our largest clients are still local to Poland, we plan to use channels and platforms like Clutch.co to tell the world about our what we can do for them.

Just take a look at what we have been able to do for one of our clients, a digital projects manager at a learning material provider, who highlighted how impressed he was with our adoption of new technologies.

Our other clients celebrated our communication skills and ability to work seamlessly as part of a blended team, which can be difficult for some to achieve:







Perhaps the most crucial factor that interviewed clients found most impressive was our laser focus on the education industry. In fact, Karolina Kostrzebska, Digital Projects Manager at MacMillan Poland, said that the key factor in their 8-year relationship with us at vm.pl was our expertise in education technology. “They deliver high-quality products,” she said, “And, most importantly, have a unique understanding of the educational field.”

At vm.pl, we are constantly striving to deliver cutting-edge education technology solutions combined with top-notch customer support. We are grateful to our satisfied clients and to Clutch.co for highlighting our achievements in the field. To learn more and see our complete stats, visit the vm.pl company profile.
