solution

Tech Active collaborated with Business Sweden right from the planning stage - identify core features, research, system flow creation and wireframing.

Our UX and creative teams worked together to design a simple and engaging user interface that was fully mobile responsive and our technical team worked on the development side of the job portal. The entire platform was built on Codeigniter Framework using PHP, MYSQL, HTML5 and CSS3 technologies.

Our programmers came up with a smart algorithm that allowed all students to get equal opportunities when applying for jobs; also preventing abuse of the system. An in-built scheduler allowed recruiters to schedule and manage interviews. The scheduler even automated tasks of sending reminders and alerts as text and email to both students and the employer.

To manage the registration process more efficiently and to ensure only genuine students and alumni were on the system a University module was developed that allowed moderation of students registering on the system and also provide University the ability to create custom logics for automated account approval.
