Our e-Reader Solution

eReader is a visual tool for education professionals which allows a user to: 

Annotate: add in reading notes in the virtual margins of your e-book which increases comprehension and builds the reading/writing connection

Mark Up: use digital pens, highlighters, virtual self-sticky notes, text tools, bookmarks to enrich the user experience 

Listen: Audio includes word-by-word tracking, which can be turned on or off. Words are highlighted as they are read aloud. 

Embed Videos: Add the power of video to any text so that a student can visually follow along 

Customize and differentiate: virtual copies of books can be created, all annotations, notes, additions will be saved. Teachers can create custom plans by adding in their own pages or videos. The lessons can be customized for a single student, group of students or an entire class. 

Seamless Client Communication

From Will R., Benchmark's Head of Product. "The communication has been phenomenal. You can reach their engineers at any hour of the day, any day of the week. Usually, if there’s a delay it’s because of something that we didn’t figure out as a company first. I don’t recall having to wait or being frustrated with an end result. If something gets delayed on their end, they let us know right away. Depending on the scale of the project their turnaround time is a couple of weeks to six months. They are also willing to meet in person when we need that."

Client Feedback

"We’ve worked with a number of different outsourced companies in different parts of the world, and their team was the best. They don’t build something and disappear. They take a lot of pride in what they do and I think that’s been reflected in why we’ve been together for the last several years, and why we’ll continue working with them in the future." - Will R.
