Western Michigan University partnered with SPARK to transform their software for goal measurement and reporting into an intuitive and responsive digital platform.
The Research and Innovation group at Western Michigan University created Goal Scaling Solutions (GSS) as a platform to measure individual progress towards a given goal. It is used in business, healthcare, and education settings.
At first, GSS struggled with two previous vendors who were unable to make their vision a reality.
Looking to quickly improve their software, GSS sought out SPARK as a technology partner who could translate their program requirements into a fully functional solution.
SPARK leveraged a strategic process to create the just-right GSS solution.
Starting with low-tech designs and evolving them into a clickable prototype, the GSS team was able to provide iterative feedback on the platform.
This allowed GSS to "test drive" the solution at conferences and webinars to further ensure the design was right.
An elegant, professional, and easy-to-use application was launched with an 8-week development sprint!
