“We were looking for a specialized partner who enables us to develop our app with speed and flexibility, so we can better serve the Eurovision fans across the globe,“ says Dave Goodman, ESC Digital and Communications Manager for Contest organizers, the European Broadcasting Union.

“We definitely got all of that in Choicely, and more,” Goodman emphasizes.

With Choicely, the app can be built without coding, using a visual drag and drop interface instead – like Wix or Wordpress for mobile apps.

“Despite Choicely being a no code platform, we got a fully tailormade app that matches our needs and our brand. Making improvements is quick and easy. We can focus on engaging our fans!” adds Dave Goodman from the EBU.
