What was the scope of their involvement?
Troy Web built our marketing website using a language called ColdFusion. I did the wireframe for the website, but the design was definitely a combined effort. There was quite a bit of back and forth in working with the developers at Troy Web.
They integrated our site using the SCORM Cloud API, which we use to host our courses and track learners’ activity. Once a student passes a course, this triggers a call from SCORM Cloud and a series of tasks. The site prompts the student to complete an electronic evaluation which is required to access their certificate of completion.
Troy Web also built out our student database and a secure daily transfer to The New York State Education Department. They helped us integrate with Braintree software for our credit card processing.
Troy Web also built a basic content management system that allows us to edit the content and add graphics on our site. However, we need to reach out to Troy Web if want to add new pages.
What is the team dynamic?
We worked with Jon [CEO, Troy Web Consulting], Mark [Senior Consultant, Troy Web Consulting], and two main developers.
How did you come to work with Troy Web Consulting?
We interviewed a number of companies that I found through Google searches. I also got recommendations from my network in the e-learning industry and from friends. Security was very important to us, and it was obvious that Troy Web agreed. We decided to go with them because we felt they could deliver on security.
How much have you invested with them?
We have spent $30,000–$40,000 on their services.
What is the status of this engagement?
We began working January 2013 and launched in May 2014. They're still helping us manage the site.
