Results

Evan-Moor Educational Publisher is the first publisher to develop this level of product and adapt its educational materials to the “non-paper work” standards. And the microservice by New Line Technologies allows scaling the system horizontally if necessary.

At the time of its release, TeacherFileBox had no analogs existing in the American market and was awarded the Learning Magazine Teachers ’Choice Award.

Client’s feedback

“I’ve worked with Andrew and his team of incredible developers, designers, and project managers for 10 years. This partnership has not only yielded a prolific amount of products and services, but it has helped to propel our business into the future. Together we have developed over 100 interactive learning materials, shopping carts, administration tools, a learning management system, learning object databases, and various back-end services. Due to our longstanding relationship, we have had to port over older code bases to newer ones as the landscape evolved – moving from flash/flex to html5 and react.js; .NET to .NET Core and database redesigns and web service updates. Through all these changes, NLT has been conscientious about industry standard workflow and implementation, yet passionate about seeking out more and more innovative solutions to address the vision of our future as a company. If you’re looking for a team that will carry you through, not only current projects but well into the future, New Line Technologies is the partner for you!“
