How it started: education and recruitment for students in one platform
Our client is the managing director of a German company that was looking to develop a platform to facilitate collaboration between industry and universities. The platform is dedicated to educational services, employer branding, recruiting, and idea generation. Companies would be able to upload their business cases and share them with selected professors and students. The client sought to create a web application that could automatically connect businesses with professors and students. The main goal of this project was to create the first version of the platform meaning MVP.
We were found on Fiverr. The founders of our client company decided to work with Corpsoft.io because of our ability to deliver the project on time and our reputation for high quality work.
Product description and challenges
Corpsoft.io has developed an online marketplace for B2B and B2C enterprises from scratch and customized to meet the client’s needs. The platform allows businesses to provide information about themselves to facilitate collaboration with university faculty and students. The goal of the project was to create an MVP that can function as a learning management system. So business case management platform for four user groups: companies, professors, students and administrators of the platform. All users have different levels of access. They can upload and download documents, share them privately or publicly on the business case platform. The main challenge of the project was to complete it for the 3 sprints, i.e. 1.5 months of active development.
Key Project Development Features
The main challenge of the project was the limited to three sprints time of development, and this platform had to have many features, including a start page, a contact form, a store, a marketplace with advanced filters and keyword search capability, a blog, a personal account, a job portal, events, and security outputs.
A multi-role system is implemented on the platform, giving different levels of access to companies, professors, students and administrators. Companies are able to use the platform to find young professionals, who, in turn, can complete tasks and get their first job or part-time job.
Different packages are available for companies in the store, and once purchased, they can upload their case to the platform’s marketplace. A feature of these packages is the possibility of buying individual features, not just the full package. Tutors can register on the platform to access the full case, and students can register in a password-protected member area linked to both the company and the educator through the case. We’ve also provided adaptive design, a user-friendly interface, basic SEO optimization, and speed optimization. The store supports a variety of payment methods, and the personal account requires proof of identity when registering.
Value of development
The Corpsoft team has created a platform that connects businesses and universities in Germany in a limited number of iterations. This platform helps deliver training to future professionals and provides access to talent among students. Through a unique assignment tool, companies could create assignments and post them on the platform, where students could apply to complete them. So, the platform creates opportunities for students to show their potential and find jobs, and for companies to find talented young professionals.
