Apex is an online course administration tool that stores information about courses, presenting it in different formats on various platforms. The product has been developed and used internally for 20 years. However, in 2017, the client decided to revamp the tool and make it sellable. Being they had a previous, successful experience working with Beetroot, they approached us again with a request to update their platform using modern toolchains and frameworks.
- Apex, an online course administration platform, needed a revamp of their product to shift from internal use to an external market
- Hiring a Beetroot team allowed them to extend their tech capacity and achieve sufficient results in a short period of time
- Since the cooperation began, the client has received an updated, sellable platform with advanced functionality
Initially, the client hired Beetroot developers as sub-contractors but later shifted to a dedicated team model. Apex desired to work with the team longer-term and wanted Beetroot to be more involved in the process. The first hired developer was very capable and knowledgeable, however, the second hire — a front-end developer — did not work as expected, so Beetroot helped Apex find a better fit. With extended capacity, the client was able to develop and deploy a new release or new functionality on a weekly basis.
After a year of working to create a platform, the client received a product that exceeded their expectations. With the help of the Beetroot team, new features were developed in a short period of time. For instance, Apex added a self-sign-up form that can be adjusted to other companies’ styles and customized on an individual basis. After the cooperation started, the client observed a growing number of users, which included increasing internal use of the platform. Thus far, the main achievement has been the creation of a sellable, thought-through platform, which can be easily packaged and set up for individual customer needs.
