About The Client

Exam Master is a study, review and test taking software for medical professionals. They provide exam preparation and review material to health care practitioners, medical students (USMLE exams), residents (SMLE and Board Certification) and physicians (Board Certification and SPEX). 

Exam Master launched its service in 1994 with the idea of providing a better way to prepare aspiring medical students and healthcare practitioners with licensure exams. Today, they own and operate two platforms: Exam Master Online and Academic Manager. Their innovative mindset to provide software solutions has catapulted the company to success with medical schools, medical libraries, teaching hospitals and individuals from all over the world.

Exam Master's Needs

The company owns and operates web applications built on Ruby on Rails, through which it delivers its services to its end clients, handles work with their consultants and manages back-office operations. Exam Master had been doing said development through an in-house team but overtime faced issues of unsatisfactory speed and quality of deliverables. With the need to maintain their software constantly, they also faced a general lack of clarity on the progress of the development roadmap for their products.

It became unclear to the management team whether the speed and quality at which development work was being done was ideal and consistent with industry standards. That's when Exam Master reached out to Resolve Digital and, as experts in custom development for SaaS, we were able to offer consulting and development services to quickly address their concerns.

Our Resolve Digital Solution

Understanding the ins and outs of Exam Master’s value proposition and business strategy, we engaged with Exam Master to help ramp up their existing development projects and essentially replace part of their inhouse team. Resolve Digital quickly integrated the existing development efforts For example, we migrated their software solution from a RackSpace to Heroku infrastructure. 

We have also worked with them on: 
- Migration from Rackspace to Heroku infrastructure
- Migration from Rails 3.2 to Rails 5.1
- Significant reduction in unresolved bugs
- Ada and VPAT Compliance
- Development of many new features and functionality

With the work done by Resolve Digital, the company has been able to acquire expert level talent to work on their development requests, without sacrificing delivery speed or quality. Together, we have assured the Exam Master that their development budget is well invested and ultimately boosted their confidence about continuing to invest in their technology.
