The founder of ExamDesign Inc., a self-funded US based startup, was looking for a technology partner to turn an innovative business idea into a cutting-edge product to be used for authoring certification exams.
We created a greenfield application with rapid iteration to MVP that the founder could on-board clients and set up a revenue stream with. As a start-up we supported rapid turnaround on client requested features and customizations, ensuring development was always supporting further revenue generation and growth in user base.
