About the work

Why the work is being done
With the exponential growth of Maudsley Learning, we have successfully transformed the business from a physical service delivery organisation to one that is now able to deliver our services online. In 2020, we invested in a new digital interface for Maudsley Learning linking the website to a virtual learning environment subsequently enabling a seamless UX when accessing our services in person or digitally. The aim is to improve the work delivered to date to catch up with the constant change in demand for how our services is being offered / delivered
Problem to be solved
The digital infrastructure relies on several platforms for successful deployment. The website uses Umbraco for front-end design with the backend linked to Microsoft Dynamics (PowerApp). Further integration into a Virtual learning environment powered by moodle. Currently, some of the items needing to be developed are
- waiting list
- Automatic user enrolment not working as it should
- control over the number of tickets a user can book
- Umbraco - Ability to configure pages as public, hidden or password-protected
- Debug Screen - to speed up customer queries
- Integrate PowerApp data into the existing CRM platform (e-shot)
- Upgrade the existing Umbraco site from 7.0 to the latest version available
- Resolve incorrectly triggered emails e.g. cancelled courses sometimes still trigger reminder emails to those registered.
Who the users are and what they need to do
Users need to be able to create account on and actions associated with it e.g. update profile, request for forgotten password etc. Users need to be able to book / reserve a place on our courses with the ability to pay if required. Users need to be able to cancel their places on courses via customer portal and refund issued (Stripe). Users need to have able to bulk upload other users onto a course. Users need to be able to checkout with more than one product. Currently user is only able to checkout multiples of the same product
