National Children's Bureau (NCB), a UK charity which champions the cause of wellbeing and protects the interest of children and young people, wanted to develop a bespoke database and web portal to generate actionable insights on bullying behaviour across all schools in the UK. The key challenges were:
Schnell developed a low-cost, low-maintenance self-service web (online) portal which would act as a national framework for collecting structured data on bullying across all UK schools.
To ensure that the project was implemented successfully and it delivered exceptional value, Schnell combined its ART IT © (Applying the Right Technology) approach with WYSIWYG prototyping. This allows NCB to involve schools, programme experts and end-users at every stage during the development life cycle and ensure the end product was an exact match for requirements.
To ensure 100% participation from children, we developed the web portal to conform with the W3C AA guidelines so that children with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (SEN/D) could use it independently.
Apart from meeting all objectives, because of Schnell’s unique ART IT approach, NCB was able to incorporate extra features and functions without budget overruns.
"Schnell Solutions have been very easy to work with and have kept in touch with us all along the way. Our project was so complicated that other companies had turned us down but Schnell took it on and met all our requirements including all the unexpected ones we hadn’t thought of!."
