AT A GLANCE

Our client, the British Council, needed a modern, responsive website to promote their English language tests effectively. Our team helped by developing a comprehensive CX strategy and design, including UX/UI enhancements. Computools assisted in revitalising and optimising the platform, which resulted in a user-friendly, efficient website that improved user engagement and increased test registrations.

THE CLIENT

The client is a prominent organisation that aims to promote British culture and values globally. With a reach that extends to over 100 countries, they reach 650 million people each year. Employing a workforce of more than 7,000 dedicated full-time employees, this organisation is committed to fostering cultural exchange, educational opportunities, and intercultural relations.

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

The British Council wanted a modern, responsive design and improved user experience. Also, they needed to consolidate resources for the IELTS English proficiency test. The presence of unofficial test materials negatively impacted their brand reputation, prompting the need for a strategic approach to resource consolidation.

Additionally, the lack of clear guidance for test preparation, progress tracking, and readiness was a concern. The client recognised the need for a user-friendly, structured solution to streamline the test preparation process.

SOLUTION SUMMARY

Computools undertook a digital transformation project to revitalise and optimise the website. The solution included user research to understand user needs, service design to enhance user experience, portal development for content delivery, website hosting set-up, and analytics integration. The result was a responsive, user-friendly platform that met the British Council’s branding requirements and significantly increased revenue, user throughput, and process automation.

Our primary mission was to provide candidates with a streamlined and structured pathway for test preparation, offering essential resources such as PDF files and webinar videos. We established a user-friendly WordPress platform as the host to facilitate easy access to educational materials, simplifying navigation and accessibility for candidates. Additionally, we implemented critical search engine optimisation (SEO) techniques to enhance the portal’s visibility and accessibility, ensuring it reached wider audience.

We integrated comprehensive user analytics into the platform, generating in-depth reports that provided valuable insights into user behaviour and preferences, helping to refine the user experience. We also implemented an email notification system to enhance communication with users, ensuring they received important updates and information promptly.

Our overarching goal was to simplify and improve the test preparation process, offering a valuable resource for candidates. This project underscored the client’s commitment to educational excellence and our dedication in helping them succeed in their mission.

IMPACT

As a result of this project, the client successfully launched a web portal that simplified IELTS test preparation.

Western-European rail operator

With Computools IoT wagon monitoring system, a European railway operator can track the location and condition of cargo in real-time.

case image

AT A GLANCE

Our team assisted a Western European rail operator in developing a system for real-time cargo fleet positioning. By incorporating safety parameter monitoring and instant alerts for deviations, the client received streamlined fleet management and reduced manual checks. Utilizing the MQTT protocol ensured reliable data transmission and top-notch security, providing our client with IoT-based solution for their cargo operations.

THE CLIENT

The client is a major passenger and cargo transport operator active in Western Europe. The company operates high-speed, regional and city trains, and also has a franchise for national transport. The Company is a major player in the rail cargo market, with an extensive route network and rolling stock fleet.

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

The lack of a real-time wagon monitoring system made it impossible for the customer to track the location and condition of the cargo. These limitations made it difficult to respond quickly to problems and prevent accidents. The client had idle wagons and reduced productivity.

The client wanted to implement a wagon monitoring system, to create an early warning system of potential safety hazards using sensors and detectors.

SOLUTION SUMMARY

Our engineers have developed a real-time freight tracking system that provides operators with accurate positioning of cargo wagons. This also includes data on important safety parameters: volume, pressure, and temperature. The system automatically notifies operators when measured parameters deviate from the norm.

The main components of the system include:

  • Sensors: installed on wagons to collect data on safety parameters.
  • Data acquisition system: collects data from the sensors and transmits it to the central system.
  • Central system: analyses the data and generates alerts.
  • User interface: allows operators to monitor freight data and receive alerts.

IMPACT

The decision to implement IoT in cargo wagons tracking resulted in a reduction in the need for manual inspection of wagons. Before the implementation of the system, 2 manual inspections per day were required. After the implementation of the system, the number of manual inspections decreased. The customer also became more aware of the condition of the wagons. The system provides 24/7 monitoring of safety parameters such as volume, pressure and temperature.

WHY COMPUTOOLS

The client conducted a thorough selection process before choosing us as their partner for this project. They actively researched potential partners through various channels:

  • 01. Online research:
    This involved searching for companies with expertise in developing real-time tracking systems and experience in the transportation
    sector.
  • 02. Industry consultations:
    Consulting with experts in the cargo transport industry could have led them to Computools’ reputation or resulted in direct
    recommendations.

The client considered proposals from several vendors. After a comprehensive evaluation, the client selected Computools for several key reasons:

  • Proven track record
  • Skilled team
  • Client-centric approach
  • Professionalism and understanding
