Partnership Goal

We collaborated with a leading pharmaceutical company to address the need for a modern and engaging employee training solution. Our objective was to develop a mobile app to revolutionize the way pharmaceutical employees learn and stay informed.


  • Classroom-based training disrupted schedules and offered limited accessibility.
  • Static content hampered knowledge retention and engagement.
  • Lack of personalized learning paths hindered skill development.


  • Employees access targeted training modules and personalized learning paths aligned with their specific roles.
  • Interactive features and gamified elements boost motivation and knowledge retention.
  • Bite-sized learning content enables employees to learn anytime, anywhere.

Team Formation

To tackle the complexities of building the mobile app, we had a skilled team of 8 engineers. Each member brought their expertise and together they had a strong understanding of mobile app development, backend functionalities, and user interface design.

One main challenge they encountered was ensuring seamless data synchronization across various devices. In the pharmaceutical industry, where consistent access to up-to-date information is crucial, this was paramount. The team successfully addressed this by implementing efficient caching mechanisms, guaranteeing that employees have the latest training materials readily available, even in situations with limited internet connectivity.

Their collaborative efforts were crucial in bringing the vision of EMS Connect to life, ensuring a user-friendly and effective training platform for the pharmaceutical industry.

Success story

Have further questions?

  • How can a mobile app keep employees engaged with training content?

    Traditional training methods often struggle to hold employee attention. An engaging app like EMS Connect uses techniques like:

    • Bite-sized learning modules: Smaller, focused lessons make it easier for employees to learn on-the-go during breaks or downtime.

    • Gamification: Points, badges, and leaderboards can introduce a fun element to learning, motivating users to complete tasks and progress through training.

    • Personalized learning paths: Tailoring content to individual roles and needs keeps employees interested by focusing on relevant information.

  • What technical challenges arise when developing a mobile app for geographically dispersed teams?

    A critical challenge is ensuring seamless data access across various devices and network connections. In EMS Connect, we addressed this by:

    • Offline access: Employees can download training materials for later access, even in areas with limited internet.

    • Data caching: The app stores data locally on the device using technologies like Next.js. This allows users to access information even with a weak signal.

  • Can an employee training app integrate with existing Learning Management Systems (LMS)?

    Yes, integration is important for a smooth workflow and centralized data management. Our development team has experience creating solutions that work alongside existing LMS platforms. This lets companies leverage their current infrastructure while adding the benefits of a mobile app.

  • How long does it typically take to develop a mobile app like EMS Connect?

    The development timeline depends on the desired features and functionalities. For a core set of features similar to EMS Connect, the process typically takes 4-6 months. Adding more complex functionalities may extend the development cycle.

  • What are the key metrics for measuring the success of an employee training app?

    Engagement is a crucial indicator. In the EMS Connect project, we saw a 42% increase in user engagement and a 40% jump in training completion rates. This demonstrates the app's effectiveness in keeping employees motivated and actively learning.
