Talent Solutions to Develop New Virtual Education Platform

Client: Virtual Education Provider
The client is a leading, fully accredited provider of high quality, highly accountable virtual education solutions for students in grades K-12. The client’s academy division delivers individualized learning to students through virtual public schools and a private online academy. This client provides for more than 300 schools, school districts, state departments of education, and other educational institutions, through which they serve thousands of students.

The Challenge:

The client, whose mission is to expand quality education technology and to help students achieve both academic and personal success, was dissatisfied with the Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) tools available in the virtual education space. They wanted to internally develop and customize a platform that would give teachers and students the most innovative and stress-free learning experience in the market. Their vision was a platform that would address every aspect of an online school, which includes content delivery, lesson planning, grading, chat features, performance analytics, etc. This platform would allow teachers and students both to have a fully customizable experience. The client knew this would require adding a significant amount of technical team members with highly specialized skill sets to complete the work in a short period of time.

The Solution:

For this initiative, the client relied on Eliassen’s reputation for Talent Solutions and Professional Services. Eliassen Group was engaged and effectively helped add individual resources, including a whole team of developers, within a 2-month period. This effort included the on-boarding of 20 highly specialized long-term consultants.

The Result:

Partnering with Eliassen Group allowed the client to significantly reduce the time to on-board technical resources. Eliassen’s team of veteran recruiters successfully sourced and screened the right matches for the team to ensure the project would run smoothly. The productivity added to the team put the client back on track to deliver highly innovative features to their customers within the agreed upon timelines. This effort ensured they would retain their customers for the school year resulting in significant revenue for the company. Over the course of this project, the client converted 6 of Eliassen’s resources to full-time employees.
