Project challenges

  • We had to create a complex educational platform that would include all ranges of tasks, yet would be easy to navigate through both for managers and students.
  • Elements of StartMy.Portal needed to have unique designs and at the same time be in sync with each other.
  • We had to establish processes between StartMy.Portal and other projects and simulators like Bank Manager and Evaluator, so users could switch between them in a split second.
  • We wanted to give managers a possibility to check students’ tasks in real-time mode.
  • Admin panel design had to be user-friendly, so it would be easy for managers to upload current information, change tasks, charts, documents, questionnaires.

Solutions

  • Enkonix decided to implement the microservice architecture, so all the components could work independently. Thanks to this technology it was easier to build and maintain all the modules, to improve productivity, flexibility, scalability, and speed.
  • Thanks to the comprehensible admin panel each part of the program is controlled by managers, who are able to adjust and to change content, tasks.
  • They may invite participants, hold online sessions, check results/answers in real-time mode due to the WebSocket technology.
  • Students have access to the program and all the materials prepared by the manager at any time and place. They can watch videos, read documents, pass simulator sessions individually, or in teams with their colleagues.
  • Besides, the company can create open programs with free access to all those wishing to check personal skills. This allows to check employees' knowledge and gain additional skills. Their results may be used for the search and recruitment of better specialists.
  • By receiving access to the portal manager has a personal account that gives him/her access to already existing programs, materials, simulators, online lectures, documents.
  • At the same time the manager may create separate programs and educational materials, invite other students, check statistics on sessions passing on separate simulators or documents.

Results

StartMy.Portal helps financial companies to motivate their employees, increase productivity, and improve performance.

Our simulators help to find the right person for the right job. Companies that step up and invest in more tenured workers will be able to reduce hiring costs. Training inspires employees to perform better, which increases job satisfaction and decreases staff turnover across the organization.

Due to user-friendly design company managers can easily adjust tasks, topics, questionnaires to their needs. They can create documents in the simulator and upload new materials to help employees stay up-to-date on current events in their field.

The variety of tasks helps to create a multi-skilled and agile workforce, which is a high priority for many companies in the fast-changing economy.

Not only our solution allows to fill the in-house skills shortage, but also find new personnel due to the questionnaires and simulators, which managers may open to all the job seekers.
