240 Tutoring Expands Services Nationally with Help from Catapult Systems
Companies Team to Design and Implement Hosted Education Service based on the Microsoft Azure Platform
TORONTO – July 10, 2012 – Today at the Microsoft WPC 2012 Conference, Catapult Systems, a Microsoft IT consulting firm, announced that it has completed designing and building a solution with 240Tutoring, an online resource that helps teachers prepare for their certification exams. Originally founded in October 2010 with the goal of preparing teachers in Texas, 240Tutoring recently expanded nationally to provide similar services to teachers across the United States.
“Our work with Catapult Systems has made our software much more user-friendly,” said Scott Rozell, founder of 240Tutoring. “Everything Catapult delivered worked correctly the first time, which was important for helping us meet our goals of rolling out the service to more regions in a timely manner.”
As a startup organization, 240Tutoring needed an affordable enterprise-class solution that could scale quickly and cost-effectively as the company grew. To help, the company turned to Catapult Systems to design, develop and deploy www.240Tutoring.com using Microsoft Windows Azure, a cloud-based platform with a 99.95% monthly SLA.
The new platform has empowered 240Tutoring to deliver its SLAs without costly investments in IT staff or infrastructure, ensuring company resources can focus on its educational service offerings and customers. The solution was so successful that 240Tutoring was able to expand from offering services in Texas to customers nationally within nine months of the initial launch.
Recently, the founder of 240Tutoring, Scott Rozell, along with the project manager, Jeff Wilkin of Catapult Systems, were interviewed to provide more details on how the new solution is helping 240Tutoring grow its business.
Catapult Systems is a widely-recognized IT consulting services firm with nearly 20 years experience delivering Microsoft-based technology solutions to enterprises of all sizes. A Microsoft National Systems Integrator (NSI), the company is ranked in the top 0.10% of Microsoft partners globally.
