We determine whether the app functions efficiently and reliably from a technological point of view. The application must adapt to a minimum of functionality acceptable to the end user ensuring robustness and consistency.



We ensure robust mechanisms are in place to preserve the privacy of the data generated by the users and the utmost confidentiality in the transmission of said information. It is necessary to ensure proper storage of information and establish mechanisms for encryption when registering passwords.

 Functionality and content

A Committee of Experts, made up of professionals from different professional associations in the sector such as COMB, COPFLEFC, COIB, SCEPC, AiFICC and CAMFIC, evaluate the quality of the content and the utility of the functions offered. Their review includes the usability and design of the application and whether it notifies the user of any software updates.
