The Challenge

Magdalen College School needed their whole Physical Education department to be modernised and brought into the digital era. They are a school that is proud of their sports department and all it has to offer, and so it was important that they be taken away from their reliance on paperwork, which was consuming too much time.

They needed a system that was quick and efficient, with a design that was completely intuitive.

The Solution

Our solution was to keep things focused on the user experience. If the client was to be convinced that moving from paperwork to paperless was the right decision, they needed a system that was easy to learn, easy to teach and quick. It had to be quick not just in loading time between pages, but speed in terms of ease of use, with all of the necessary links and features exactly where one would expect them.
