A globally acclaimed exam management platform for specialized SMEs, facilitating remote collaboration, creation of legally defensible high-stakes certification exams

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 onboard clients and set up a revenue stream with. As a start-up, we supported rapid turnaround on client-requested features and customisations, ensuring development was always supporting further revenue generation and growth in the user base.

ExamDeveloper has received a high degree of industry attention in all events and forums, leading to eventual product acquisition by Pearson VUE. Pearson VUE elected to retain us as the sole technical partner post-acquisition.

Solution Highlights
