About Client and Their Business Requirements

Our client was a US-based educational group that deals with the latest tutoring method where students can find tutors to assist them with their assignments and has the largest selection of qualified online-based tutors in the world who can help students with all subjects to ace their assignments.

They were looking to provide a one-stop solution to help students with their assignments and homework. When the client came to Katalyst, their intention was to build an online platform where students can connect to professional tutors and that also functions as an online learning place for the students with additional features to offer a convenient way for students to get guidance for their studies. The platform would be used by the students to post their questions on the website and to pay tutors who provide answers to their questions and assignments.
