TinyApp is an application that links parents and teachers in kindergartens and preschools through technology. It’s a smart pedagogical assistant inspired by Finnish education. Teachers helped throughout the design process to be sure the tool will be useful and effective for them. The key concept behind the app is making parenting and teaching easier while creating a more supportive environment for young learners.

Some of the core features include engaging parents in their child’s education process as well as saving teacher’s time on individual planning for every child. With the product, it is possible to observe and generate useful data on daily pedagogical activities as well as learning progress.

CHALLENGE

Smarter tool to track learning progress

A day in the life of early childhood teachers can be hectic and fast-paced — chaotic even. That’s the reality of working with small children. The idea behind the application is to aid the work of pre-school teachers by providing tools and theoretical materials on the children’s development.

Due to the lack of in-house developers, TinyApp decided to outsource all technological solutions including architecture planning, development, deployments, infrastructure setup and maintenance. For this, they chose Espeo as their long-term development partner.
Our work in this project plays a vital role in TinyApp’s international growth. Because of the scaling nature of the business, we need to ensure that the product meets the growing demands. The cooperation between TinyApp and Espeo sets an example of how to best outsource your project. The urge for distance learning grew with COVID-19 and TinyApp had to adapt quickly on the features and materials.

Our role

We scale and ensure a bug-free product

Our team size varies in terms of needs but the steady team consists of two backend developers, one React Native mobile app developer and a part-time tester. On the client’s side we are cooperating closely with the product owner, business representative and customer representative.
We’re developing the cross-platform mobile application and two web dashboards, one for users and another for administrators.

Furthermore, we’re making sure the AWS implemetation is working properly, the service is running properly and that the server’s capacity fits TinyApp’s current needs.More and more facilities are joining and also bigger organizations realize the value of the product. Espeo needs to adapt features fixes for better management of large organizations.
