Improve Educations Image

Improve Educations

What does modern education look like? It is clear, interesting, and insightful. Just as a solution developed for Improve Educations by UKAD.

While the founder of Improve Educations requested us to create a learning platform, we already were skilled in eLearning technologies and knew what we should do. But this project was truly unique because of the possibility for a third-party to sell courses. In other words, it should

not be a simple eLearning website but a kind of educational marketplace with multi-tier managed access.

The Client challenged us with the development of a platform that will be equally easy for managers and users, at the same time stylish, modern, and powerful. The requested features were:

  • possibility to manage education content without strong tech skills
  • different levels of access for users
  • possibility of certification with built-in tools
  • possibility to sell courses via the platform for third-party companies.

The perfect performance, good speed, and uptime are also important because they are vital for eLearning projects.

According to the conception, UKAD developed an eLearning platform with the following features:

  • user dashboard with courses divided into Chapters and certificates
  • possibility to take the course exam 
  • video lessons with transcriptions
  • certificates generation with PDF templates using a user ID
  • built-in email distribution
  • user access to courses via special URL with a unique token
  • manager access
  • Klarna payment system.

While other companies can sell courses with Improve Educations, we also implemented a possibility of branding. For partners, it's just enough to send their brand colors, images, and fonts to get a unique fully customized profile on the platform.
Since we were using the Umbraco theme for Improve Educations project, the platform doesn't require developers for customization. Since the solution has no hardcoded elements, most of all changes in UI can be performed by Content Managers in a few clicks.

users with comprehensive analytics and allow evaluating the progress easily.

We used Umbraco CMS augmented with plugins. The solution was selected because of great usability both for users and for managers. Then, we added a possibility to implement support for many languages with synchronous translation which significantly reduces timespends on content management. Analytics and charts were implemented with Highcharts Plugin. As the payments platform, Mimir Test uses Netaxept by Nets because of its highest level security and user-friendly UI.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

For what projects/services did your company hire UKAD?

We hired UKAD to develop an API which is a vital part of our new product.

What were your goals for this project?

The goal was to develop an API and to wrap it into the useful UI.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

My friends referred UKAD to me as a company with great experience in work with Nordic companies. Then, I decided to take a look at their website and reviews, and found quite a lot of good comments, especially, from Swedish people. For me, it's a good point that the company shares similar cultural values and business practices.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

There was a Project Manager on the UKAD's side, so the team was almost self-managed. For me, it was very comfortable because most of the technical points were solved immediately and our side could concentrate on the other processes.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The most impressive in UKAD is the fact that cooperation with them was as easy as with a company from Sweden. Security, openness, and transparency aren't spare words for them. But quality and expertise are also a top-grade level.

Actually, no, UKAD seems to be a really good company to cooperate with.

For what projects/services did your company hire UKAD?

What were your goals for this project?

To develop a robust website with my design. And make everything work properly.

It wasn't brilliant in the beginning, but I talked to the project manager Oleg and we've changed the communication model. Today everything is okay and I always know what's going on in the project. We have weekly demos and planning running inside the overall master plan which is comfortable for everyone and easy to manage.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

UKAD is very client-oriented. Developers never perform useless work, but always search the way to improve business value. The project manager was open and friendly. I also enjoy the proactive position in planning and management of delivery which built on understanding both business and tech aspects of the project.

Are there any areas for improvement?

For the development of the online store with our branded design, and also some related services related to Search Optimization.

What were your goals for this project?

At first, it should be extremely easy to manage without any technical skills at all. Then, it should have great usability for our customers. And the last point, it should look good both on desktop and mobile devices with our recognizable design. And of course, we were looking for something not very expensive.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I was researching around the web when I found UKAD's website and got interested in their expertise. After several emails, the CEO Denys invited me to visit their office and meet the developers. I was impressed that they could talk about complex things in plain language, so I found the proposal reasonable and we started development.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

I've got direct contact with my Project Manager Yurij. It was flawless.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

At first, it was the orientation of the customer's needs. While I'm not a tech-savvy person, for me it was very important to know that developers do only things that are really required. Also, I enjoy the quality of communication. And the way how the developers fulfilled my requirements also was impressive. They used Umbraco CMS which is not common, or at least I've never heard about it before, but very comfy and cost-effective.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I'm not sure. Collaboration with UKAD is a great experience.

We're an e-commerce engineering team focused on Magento. Since 2003, we are a reliable B2B partner and help brands, merchants, digital agencies, and software development professionals create effective practical solutions and customer-focused online stores.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire UKAD?

Our company was looking for help with .NET development for an epic project. As soon as our team focused on the other parts here came a necessity to enforce it with strong .NET expertise.

What were your goals for this project?

To design, develop and test a web part of complex eCommerce solution.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I met UKAD management at the conference a few years ago and then kept in touch. So, when we've faced a necessity to hire a development team, Denis was one of the first people I've talked to, thanks to the expertise of the UKAD team and many interesting cases. As he promised to start delivery in a week, we made a deal.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We shared design, all documentation describing the concept, goals and so on. Then the UKAD team developed a whole solution including UI/UX, performed Quality Assurance and support.

They also suggested some technologies to optimize terms and spends which were successfully utilized. As soon as it was an addition to the existing online store, developed to improve buyers' engagement, this project required regular demos to keep the concept.

The manager from UKAD's side established our working process in the most effective way in which we had strong enough communication but never wasted time on vain meetings.

What was the team composition?

There was a project manager, who also acted as an architect, with several developers. We also attracted a UI/UX designer and QA engineers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Sadly, I can't share any numbers. But the delivery UKAD performed played a great impact on the whole project. Finally, our end customer was happy!

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We had well-established project management on the UKAD side. They offered easy communication, regular demos, transparent pricing, and other best practices were included.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

It's expertise. UKAD provides customers access to really skilled developers with an interesting stack. There are not too many companies utilizing such technologies.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We were totally satisfied. They delivered a top-quality product.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CTO of Reviso, a pan-European cloud accounting platform associated with the Italian company TeamSystem, which boasts over 30 years of accounting and compliance experience and employs more than 2000 people. Serving customers in Italy, Spain, Germany, and the UK, we believe in collaboration, and that the better we become at working together, the better we become at doing business. We build efficient, flexible products that strengthen and support the partnerships among small companies, their bookkeepers, and accountants. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire UKAD ?

We hired them to rewrite our expense scanner app using React Native as well as expand its functionality. 

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to take advantage of the React Native platform and enable our customers to categorize documents from the app. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Not only are their prices fair, but their CTO is highly talented and reliable.

Describe the project in detail.

We provided the wireframes for the app, which was to serve as the foundation for future expansions as well as a base and pipeline for new React Native applications.

The app required the following capabilities: a welcome message at login; a “remember login” option to make repeat logins easy; the use of real-time or previously captured images from a file system to prepare an expense; and the ability to include additional expense details then categorize the expense as either free text completed by the user or a predetermined category pulled from our core application. The expense app would then forward a consolidated document and additional information to the core platform for further action. 

What was the team composition?

In addition to the CTO, we worked with several other skilled developers from UKAD. We also provided a sideline designer and developer to assist as needed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

UKAD delivered a flawless app that our customers love. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The UKAD team is highly structured and responsive. Regular updates and demos, as well as accurately estimated tasks and direct communication, helped us feel in control of the project and strengthened our confidence and trust in them.

They offered good, proactive suggestions for the challenges we faced and provided great input when identifying issues and alternatives. They also integrated seamlessly into our operations and felt like a part of our team instead of a third-party vendor.  

What did you find most impressive about this company?

This is a very strong and talented company. The owners, who are honest and straight-forward, know their business and their craft exceptionally well. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

There are none so far. We enjoyed working with UKAD and look forward to doing so again in the future.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CTO and founder of a software company based around the product we developed.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire UKAD?

We were originally an IT consultancy that produced numerous projects for large agencies. We had an idea for a SaaS product, but we didn’t have the resources.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a product that competes with other commercial offers in the same area. The product would have a defined roadmap and could be efficiently used by existing or potential customers.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

A few of my employees worked with UKAD in the past and were pleased with the experience.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

UKAD developed a document management and sales enablement platform that runs on MS Azure and with three websites connected to the backend. There is an admin site, a website for users to view content, and an internal site for our team. For the sites and backend, our team provided the designs and requirements. An iOS application also connects to the platform. Their team worked on it before we had available resources in-house. UKAD updates the platform and provides maintenance when needed.

What was the team composition?

Initially, we worked with an iOS developer, two backend developers, a frontend developer, and a project manager. We scaled down when the initial project was completed, but we add members when features need to be implemented.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

The product has attracted paying customers for years. We created a separate company to focus on this product because of its popularity.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Project management was a joint effort. Sometimes I would leave everything to UKAD and receive weekly reports and demos. Other times, I was actively involved in discussions with the developers through Skype.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

All of their employees exhibit a sense of responsibility that shows their dedication to delivering the best product. The core product was the same quality we would’ve expected from an in-house developer. If a serious issue arose, their team responded immediately. UKAD was open to suggestions in all aspects of the project.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There are none that I can think of.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the VP of customer business at Infopulse Ukraine. We provide software development services worldwide from multiple locations in Ukraine and other countries. Our portfolio consists of several clients, including major players in the banking, retail, telecommunications, and audit and consulting industries.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire UKAD ?

We wanted to expand our presence into Kharkiv, Ukraine, which is UKAD’s main location; they helped establish our service in the city.

What were your goals for this project?

We had ambitions to start a new development location in Kharkiv from scratch, so we started with a limited setup to see how things would unfold.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We searched online and selected a few companies to help us ramp up in Kharkiv. After some negotiations, we decided that UKAD would be a good partner. There were also other companies that helped us, but UKAD was the primary firm; we relied on them extensively.

Describe the project in detail.

UKAD hosted several parts of our project teams in Kharkiv, targeting a huge US customer, who was one of the big four audit firms, as well as providing staff augmentation for these projects as required.

What was the team composition?

We had a dynamic team setup because we would normally employ dozens of distributed teams for various ongoing projects. On UKAD’s side, they primarily assigned their senior staff.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We’ve now established our own development branch in Kharkiv but still remain in touch with UKAD. We really appreciated their partnership at the time and their continued support.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They were open and cheerful throughout.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They were flexible and didn’t hesitate to face challenges. We had absolutely no communication problems.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, nothing comes to mind. They would know better than I would.
