The Challenge

EdTech firm Insight ADVANCE needed to revamp their aging platform. Built with Groovy, it lacked scalability and a user-friendly interface. Facing a tight deadline of three months, Insight ADVANCE had to update the platform for statewide usage – ensuring it was scalable, secure, and user-friendly to support complex training and credentialing workflows.

Our Approach

Impekable’s approach to the project was fully-comprehensive, moving quickly but covering all necessary aspects amidst the looming deadline:

Research and Planning

Conducted an extensive review of business logic and workflows for coaching, evaluation, and credentialing systems.


Collaborated with Insight ADVANCE to develop a modern, intuitive interface.


Incorporated data privacy and security requirements, along with a backup strategy for data integrity.


Implemented scalable session management, multi-platform messaging, and a video processing pipeline for efficient classroom recordings.


Built the platform using .NET, React, and React Native for the mobile app, with a Postgres database and Microsoft IIS for
the web server.

The Solution

At the core of the Insight ADVANCE platform are distinct applications, each designed to enhance teaching and learning experiences.


Enables teachers to be recorded in the classroom and receive feedback from evaluators.


Trains evaluators to ensure fair grading and standard adherence.


Supports state-based teacher credentialing and retesting.

Mobile App

Allows for easy recording and uploading of classroom sessions with associated metadata.

Our senior developer from Impekable did a great job of stabilizing the base code, making the need for maintenance drop by about 75%.

A Pivotal Milestone: Acquisition by Teaching Channel

The culmination of the Insight ADVANCE journey was its acquisition by Teaching Channel: a testament to its success and impact in the educational technology space. This milestone was not just a testament to the platform’s value, but also to the enduring partnership with Impekable. What began as a three-month project evolved into a four-year collaboration – with Impekable playing a crucial role in the platform’s continuous improvement and expansion. The acquisition served as a ringing endorsement of Insight ADVANCE’s ability to elevate teaching and learning experiences across school districts.

I would recommend that anyone be as clear as possible regarding a problem, allowing Impekable to be as clear as they can be on how to solve it. Being open to Impekable's insight is advisable. They're very knowledgeable and realistic in terms of estimates.
