The Story of Our Customer

Founded in 2016, the client started with printing services for college students and was based in Berlin, Germany. By 2017, the client began developing their learning platform and offered job assistance and educational services to students. In 2019, their interactive learning platform launched, and they were looking to continuously innovate by adding new features and services for students and educational institutions. The client approached Flatworld EDGE via our website, seeking additional resources to bolster their team’s capabilities and develop their market share with continuous product support and maintenance.

The Challenge

Initially, the client lacked the technical talent and access to senior management professionals to scale their team’s innovation capabilities. Paired with high attrition, the client was finding it expensive to maintain their in-house team without the leadership required to expand their product offerings. As their product took on new markets, the team needed to expand and take on additional responsibilities in strategic areas of the business. The client required FTE’s qualified in the .NET technology stacks and proficient in the product’s development to strengthen their business growth plans.

Key challenges faced by the client include:

  • Lack of specialized talent to head projects required to develop and deploy new product offerings and manage business development
  • High team attrition becoming burdensome as added costs and lack of technical skills affected product performance in the market
  • Inefficient knowledge transfers, which resulted in longer training durations and employees working in silos
