Digital Asset Management Systems for Custom eLearning Solutions

Before eLearning Brothers was the global provider of custom elearning design, elearning templates, and online training for elearning professionals, they were a couple of brothers from outside Salt Lake City, UT in American Fork (the heart of Silicon Slopes) with a dream - to make online learning more engaging, more inspiring, and more awesome.

What did the customer need?

What did the customer need?

With no technical team in the beginning, eLearning Brothers was looking for a software development partner to help them architect a system in which hundreds of thousands of digital assets could be uploaded to the cloud, categorized, and disseminated to clients through monthly and yearly subscriptions.

They were simultaneously in need of a custom service that would manage all their customer account data including names and sales tracking history with helpful alerts to the sale's team when a subscription was about to expire.

What was our approach?

Spiral Scout engineered a robust, subscription-based digital asset management system (DAM) with an asset library and admin dashboard that equipped any eLB site admin with the tools they needed to upload multiple files, associate metadata to them, and offer them to customers for immediate download. The digital asset management system allowed for a variety of assets including illustrations, audio, video, Flash, ActionScript files, and more that would power elearning content development, game design and online training and elearning templates.

The customer data collected through that DAM was then siphoned into a customer relationship management (CRM) module Spiral Scout developed which was integrated with a new user management system - all built to scale as the customer’s business exploded.

How did we do?

Since 2012 when eLearning Brothers was just a handful of employees, their team has grown to over 150 members, consistently being highlighted as one of the fastest-growing companies in Utah and the U.S. (most recently being honored in the Inc. 5000 Hall of Fame).

The innovative digital asset management system built by Spiral Scout now offers the largest library of elearning assets on the planet, housing over 2 million templates, images, stock assets, editable graphics, icons, videos, and more.

In the words of Andrew Scivally, Founder of eLearning Brothers:

“Spiral Scout is our key partner. We don't have any other partners that are as critical as they are to our business. For us, they're super responsive. JD, the CTO, is really hands-on on the developer side. He responds to us at any time – day, night – it doesn't matter. He understands what we're doing so well. This sounds cliché, but half the time I will start a sentence, he finishes it and he's already said, "Yes, I already thought about that and I'm halfway done with it."
