"Despite being eternal optimists, we are worried. We are worried that many people believe ‘success’ is about how much money you make, the car you drive or how many likes you get on social media. We are worried that ‘talent’ is seen as some mythical genetic force possessed by the few, rather than the product of determination, hard work and experience. We are worried that our education systems are not adequately preparing young people for the future. Most of all, we are worried that most people do not realise what they are really capable of achieving."
The BecomingX platform combines a deep understanding of high-performance stories and insights from the world's most inspiring and iconic people. The aim is to help people understand exactly what it takes to succeed, raise their aspirations and to build the skills and confidence to realise their potential.
We worked with BecomingX to strategically develop a brand new website and educational/training platform for this project. This included software design and a content management system with a variety of functionalities to support teachers and students.
The functionalities of the website incorporate a wide range of multi-media tools under different subscription options. Some of the tools included are short films, surveys, school management, lesson plans, educator insight resources, rewards and chat support. All media are supported by an internal portal for teachers with the ability to monitor progress and collect data. The subscription options allow different accessibility tailored to different schools or organisations.
By identifying the BecomingX Team needs, we developed CRM and training platform systems that would have longevity and efficiency to their audience, and cater for all users involved, internally and externally.
By recognising the BecomingX long-term goals, we were able to provide regular support and maintenance for the platform itself, while preparing them for the next stage of its growth strategy. We are proud to be continuing working with BecomingX on this incredible project and can't wait to see what the future holds for the BecomngX Education enterprise.
