Zappi

Partnership with STX Next

ongoing since March 2018

Zappi is a new company on the UK supply teaching market. They come with 20 years of experience in recruitment and education and a strong focus on positive user experience and employee happiness. Their new app effortlessly connects teaching and support staff with local schools for supply work. The idea is to revolutionize this process, changing the way classrooms and supply staff connect, to make it easier, faster and far more transparent for schools and supply staff. Zappi teachers lead to happy kids!

Project details

Supplying teaching is a stressful and annoying process for both the schools who are in need and the teachers who fill this need. Currently, worker agencies try to connect the two parties by extensive use of phone calls, mostly in the mornings. More often than not, teachers are already late when they take the job, and the cover managers at school have no influence over the quality of staff they receive.

Thanks to zappi, Cover Managers at schools can search for the best candidate by themselves and send the offer directly to the chosen teachers. Requested candidates can then accept the offer or decline it. Teachers can also view the school’s location on the map along with a description of the offer. The app is available now on Google Play and the App Store.

CEO @ Zappi

We have a deep understanding of our industry and users but lacked the technical knowledge necessary to deliver this disruptive platform, therefore it was essential we found a partner that could support us in this area. We spent a lot of time researching, meeting and assessing various partners before settling on STX Next. Our experience has been very positive and we are delighted with the work.

Challenge

Zappi approached us with the need to design and build their application almost from scratch. But they did know that they wanted Python, as they were well-versed in its advantages. They put a strong emphasis on developing the application following good practices.

Solution

STX Next delivered a digital platform supporting supply teaching. The platform consists of a web application for schools, a mobile solution for teachers an administration platform for the zappi hub containing a centralized database of schools and supply staff.

We used the design thinking process to shape the solution and agile methodology to implement it. Thanks to our joint efforts, the zappi idea of creating freedom of choice for schools and supply staff is live.
