At some point in life, everyone has come across the anxiety for their further education; which college/institute? Which place? What fees? So on and so forth. These have always been haunting questions for all the students.
As you would read through, you would be envious of the people who are so well placed in time that they get to carve their futures with so much of ease.
Mr Atul Asati, one of our clients came to us with an amazing idea, an idea which would provide all the information needed about the institutes and universities abroad at the tap of your finger. It is sort of an education aggregator.
The Idea of Education Finder App
This idea was born when Atul Asati, Founder-Education Finder, working in Florida, US with a pharma company was struck by an idea of creating an information source for the students aspiring further education out of their countries, thus making it much simpler to get the first-hand information about their potential alma-maters. To start with he created a Facebook page, to address to the queries related to VISAs, entrance exams and other admission details for various international colleges and universities.
As the popularity grew he decided to get a new platform for his stemming idea- an app which can reach out to masses in much lesser time, which can be very handy enabling students to access information anytime, anywhere, and of course with a lot of accurate and precise information.
He approached EngineerBabu for the implementation. We heard him out, and we instantly got interested, not because it is our business but cause the idea was stunning and fresh. The idea came to be known as Education Finder.
How it came into being is our story. This was a very different project for us. Although the challenges were not less, at the end, it gave us an amazing insight of education industry.
Our biggest challenge was to process the huge amount of data which we were going to deal with. The crawling and refining of such humongous data was difficult.
Education Finder covers 12 different countries and covering 12 countries means covering a bunch of languages.
Finally, with all that hard work we were able to transform the world class idea into an app. To share a few features with the readers:
Information of institutes across 12 countries: Education Finder encompasses the data of more than 25000 institutes and universities spread across 12 countries-UK, US, Germany, Canada to name a few.
Fees and other costs: The app gives you a deep insight on the fees structures and boarding costs. It also provides information on over 100,000 scholarship programmes across all degrees, institutes, universities.
Social profile: Just like any other social media, you can create your profile on Education Finder. This enables you getting updates of universities and institutes, searching colleges, and communicating with them.
Filters: The app provides a filter with many filter criteria like- name, location, tuition fee, etc. It empowers you to refine your search as much as possible.
Simple Design: We have developed this app considering the audience very well. Education Finder is an app for students, and one can find the reflection of this thought in its design.
Multilingual: With spread across 12 countries, the app is available in 40 different languages which provide a vernacular connect to the users which are spread across such a large geography.
Cutting Edge Technologies:
With beautiful material design, the app captures the attention of users. It uses latest material themes, card layouts for designing beautiful graphical interface.
We were not only focusing on UI, but we cared about UX also. That is why users find it easy to use.
App shows universities in Google Map which ease users to find the exact location of the university.
University searching became very fast and easy using our efficient searching algorithm and Google Places APIs. Multiple social logins i.e. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Email are there so that users can login or register easily.
Android App was developed in Android Studio IDE and iOS app in Swift Language.
