During the project, 105 occupation cards were developed.
SIA "Midis" RSEZ is characterized by a proactive and creative approach to solving the tasks specified in the technical specification of the contract. The Scrum methodology used in the execution of the agreement made it possible to monitor the implementation of the project promptly and to solve the issues arising during the execution of the contract. It also made it possible to ensure operational communication throughout the contract execution. The implementation team searched for the best technology and user interface solutions and went deeper into achieving the goals of the test website. We are delighted with the company's work and highly value the organization of the project and the exchange of information.
Develop a website, content management system, and design for mobile devices. Train staff to work with the content management system.
A modern content management system with a public part was developed where young people can fill out the test in an interactive way by dragging and placing occupation cards on the pedestal. Take tests with interactive scales that help you better choose the answer to the statements presented pleasantly.
A content management system that enables young people to take tests interactively and get results immediately when the test is completed. Work simplified for career counselors, reducing the time for processing test results while discussing the results with young people.
