The Need

Astra Nova LMS is all about interaction and convenience in terms of e-learning, cost- and time-savings. 

This web-based application creates, manages, distributes and evaluates a great amount of learning processes in the form of online courses, webinars, in-house training programs, and interactive content.  This software system provides instructors with an opportunity to create content and deliver it to a specific group of participants, within the Clinical trial industry.

The users in this large-scale website benefit from personalized, mobile, relevant and self-paced content. 

The Challenge

One of the main challenges for BGO was to assess the best possible solution for migrating information for 10 000 people from the old system, without them experiencing any technical difficulties when accessing the already existing accounts. Moreover, the system had to go through a number of QA procedures and testing to assure all functionalities are working properly. BGO teams faced a number of challenges in order  to create a Learning Management System with a highly cross-functional design and processes with: 

  • a responsive design 
  • ability to host cloud-based services
  • and customized content

In addition to this, the strict deadline demanded BGO fast and highly effective decisions that would drive innovation to Astra Nova’s best practices. 

Тhe Solution

During the whole life cycle of the project, our trained experts utilized the latest technology to guarantee flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and time-efficacy. We used the core capabilities of :

  • WordPress 
  • PHP 
  • JavaScript and 
  • SQL Database to add excitement and refresh Astra Nova’s LMS website

Astra Nova trusted our extremely professional team of developers to perform the database migration and continue with the development of the other required functionalities in a relatively short period of time. The look and functionality of the LMS were developed for a business environment that can easily shift from web to mobile. 

BGO complemented the simplified and updated design with a full pack of intuitive options and fresh colors. In addition, the website received a broad range of easy to manage in-built e-commerce features that make the purchase of online courses much easier than before. 

Finally, our developers created easy to spot and manage the login area along with flexible backend functionality. All of this helped Astra Nova reach even more clients around the world and engage with them more effectively.

Value Delivered

BGO and Astra Nova’s collaboration added more than 25 000 (and still counting) users on the site, registered in the system since 2016. All of them are now having the unique opportunity to access a training pool consisted of more than 15 certified and 15 free of charge training courses in the Clinical Research/Pharma industries.

BGO Software had also to create a fully functional website of Astra Nova LMS that aims to familiarize people, who are involved in the clinical research/pharma industry, with a number of online certification courses that could be used for their further self-development.
