The Challenge

As an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) startup, ANZEND wanted to build a new remote worker health and safety platform to help organisations coming to terms with the reality and challenges of remote work, exacerbated by COVID-19. ANZEND wanted to build and host the new SaaS platform on Microsoft Azure – powered by Microsoft will the full range of ISV-friendly capabilities and model.

The Eighty20 Solution

ANZEND approached us with an amazing platform idea to improve the health & wellbeing of remote workers everywhere by developing an online platform that enabled work places to manage the health and wellbeing of their employees–no matter where they are located.

Using our Azinvent solution suite and Eighty20 SaaS Factory, we got to work, helping them bring their idea to life using Microsoft Azure. We started by partnering with the team to build wireframes and visual design. From there it was all about the development of the application code and building out the infrastructure as code.


To make sure the platform would work for them through all transitions, changes and upgrades, we made sure the platform was built resilient and on repeatable infrastructure with Infrastructure as Code with:

Built in integration, authentication and authorisation 


Streamlined onboarding

Capability to Integrate with third party services and APIs

Multi-tenant SaaS application on Azure, deployed in minutes

Tailored data model for the business processes and domain

Global scalability of Azure infrastructure

Secure and efficient CI/CD pipelines

Enterprise grade security

Australian sovereign infrastructure

The Outcome

ANZEND and Eighty20 started this journey with a great idea and domain knowledge. After working together for 6 weeks, ANZEND has now launched a cloud based, scalable SaaS platform for their customers which is being actively used by Australian businesses.
