TrainedIn contacted us to develop their web application that allows users to:
Their requirement was a fully functional frontend and backend web application development for multiple users - businesses (coaches, mentors, trainers etc.) and final users - with integrated payment gateway.
During the first phase, in the MPV stage, we developed the necessary features to satisfy early customers and to gather feedback from the platform users.
Project Duration: 16 weeks
As we had to develop the same web app for 3 different user groups, we needed a better understanding of the user flows to design the wireframes and code the application accordingly.
The first group of users consists of people wanting to learn a new skill or master an existing one. Their journey usually begins with a search for a training service. They can browse without having to register to the platform but an active user account is required to book any course or request a quote.
They use the platform to run private or public, online or in-house courses. This group was the most difficult to manage. Before publishing a course they have to fill out the registration form and get approved manually by a TrainedIn administrator. After the approval, they can post a course, or edit a course uploaded previously. The TrainedIn platform also allows a limited number of companies to advertise and market their courses and services for which we had to create a rotation system on the left column of the page.
This group of users has the responsibility to manage and approve user accounts, handle payments from end users to providers and help users in case of need, resolving problems in the backend.
Together, we delivered a website that portrays TrainedIn as a credible and trustworthy online marketplace for booking online and in-house courses and trainings for business and leisure. With our industry expertise, world-class team, and refined agile development and design thinking processes, we were able to go above and beyond TrainedIn’s expectations.
The launch of the website was an essential part of the startup business. After all the research, design and web development, we produced them a custom website that they have full control over and can grow with.
