Defining The Problem
We have an itch to do deep research about the problem.
The client identified a gap in the market for a digital platform that could facilitate online exams, as many existing LMS and education-based applications lacked this feature.
The global pandemic and subsequent lockdowns in Canada made offline exams impossible, leading the client to recognize the need for an online exam platform.
The client then approached us with the idea of creating a digital platform that would enable institutes to conduct and assess online exams for their students.

Understanding The Need
Our versatile portfolio makes this easy for us.
The client identified a significant gap in the market for a secure and user-friendly online exam platform for institutes and schools.
With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing educational institutes to shift to online learning, the need for a digital solution became even more apparent.
The client approached us with the requirement of a web application that could fill this gap in the market.
The platform would have three types of users – Admin (client), institute user, and students – and would provide modules for test creation, assessment, and reporting.
The client intended to make the platform available to the open market and capitalize on this unique solution.
