Agora Holdings Inc. Subsidiary, eSilkroad Network Limited, Completes First Series of Prototype Testing and Commences Second Stage Testing Protocols, Implementing Feedback From Initial Test Group Results

TORONTO, ON, Dec. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Agora Holdings Inc. (OTC PINK: AGHI) (the “Company”) today announced that further to our press announcement of December 3, 2018, its 51% owned subsidiary, eSilkroad Network Limited (“ESRL”), has completed the first round of landing page prototype testing with Kitsoft of Ukraine, and is moving to conclude second stage testing of a series of revised prototype pages which commenced mid-December, 2018. 

Between December 3 and December 10, 2018, a total of 87 companies from around the globe participated in our initial Unmoderated Remote Usability Testing (URUT) of over 30 key prototype pages for our developing B2B platform intended to make the interaction between businesses and non-profit organizations throughout the world faster, more effective, and less costly. Test participants provided feedback on various aspects of the prototype pages including concept, functionality and appeal. Our engaged operational partners, Kitsoft of Ukraine, and design partners, Rain Partners of Ukraine, received real-time test results and immediately implemented feedback from test participants in order to provide revised prototype pages for second round testing which commenced on the 13th of December 2018. The Company intends to carry out ongoing prototype testing and focus groups during the month of January 2019, ultimately exposing over 300 corporations to our landing page prototypes. 

eSilkroad Network’s technical director, Alexander Lobko, commented, “We were extremely pleased with the first round of test results for our innovative B2B social network, ‘eSilknet’. All process testing was completed in accordance with our original concept development and assessment protocol which allows for immediate implementation of test feedback so that we can quickly and efficiently move to each subsequent testing phase. We are looking forward to releasing more details of our test results as we complete each trial phase. Of the initial 87 corporate participants, over 65% were corporate entities from the People’s Republic of China. We expect the Chinese market to be a key userbase for our B2B network, opening trade and communication channels for Chinese corporations world-wide.”
