  TeacherPlanBook – Educational Technology SaaS Provider

TeacherPlanBook.com helps school districts maintain compliance with government standards and helps teachers plan lessons. They needed Bold Compass to get their Laravel webapp ready to handle district-wide rollouts rather than just individual teacher signups. We’re responsible for the entire development cycle for most of their new features – from wireframes, to development, to deploying it on their servers and ongoing support.

Driven by the features we added, TeacherPlanBook has transitioned from a user base of less than 100 users paying $25/year to long-term contracts that cover large counties. 

  Lesson Planner

We updated TeacherPlanBook.com’s lesson dashboard to make it more teacher-friendly. It’s now easier for teachers to find the lesson they’re looking for and focus on helping their students.

  User Experience Wireframes

After working with the TeacherPlanBook team to determine what features were needed, we used Balsamiq to create wireframes with suggestions for the most intuitive way to implement them. This let their team envision the workflow and begin marketing the new features.

  Lesson Analytics

To help districts make sure their teachers are maintaining compliance, we integrated with Microsoft Power BI. Each night, our unique process formats school and teacher data so it can easily be analyzed.

  Infrastucture

Bold Compass manages TeacherPlanBook’s infrastructure in AWS. We set up an RDS MySQL database to optimize performance and support point-in-type backups for disaster recovery.

  User Management System

We created user management interfaces for the TeacherPlanBook staff and for school district administrators. To keep the app maintainable, we used standard Laravel authorization functions to implement different levels of permissions.

  Premier Fine Homes – Home Builder

Premier Fine Homes is a home builder in the Tallahassee, Florida area. They asked Bold Compass to create several tools to make their business more efficient.

  Pricing Sheet Generator

Whenever they launched a new community or floor plan, the Premier Fine Homes staff manually created a new pricing PDF. We built a Laravel web app that automatically generates pricing PDFs for each floor plan based on various measurements entered. The web app is also accessible to the company’s sales staff so they can easily access their latest pricing sheets.

  Project Tracker

Premier Fine Homes has a unique way of tracking construction project projects that isn’t supported by existing project management solutions. We built a custom project tracker that lets staff track each stage of the construction process and determine whether the project is on track to meet the required deadlines.

  Invoice Ninja – SaaS Billing System

Invoice Ninja helps freelancers and businesses freelancers & businesses create invoices, accept payments, track expenses, create proposals, and manage time tracking. Their Laravel-based application is available as an open-source project and as a SaaS offering.

We added new payment options and integrated their system with services that gave them additional ways to monetize the app.

  Payment Methods

We integrated with Stripe ACH, WePay, Braintree, and PayPal, so Invoice Ninja’s customers have more ways to accept payments and are more likely to find a payment gateway that meets their needs. We also extended refund and automatic payment support for existing gateways.

  Attachments

To make it easier for users to send files we created a way to attach files to invoices. These files are made available for the recipient to download and optionally attached to the email when the invoice is sent to the customer.
