International Growth

StudyMode is a subscription platform where students can create, discover, and share study materials. The company's native success led to an exciting international expansion -- but their website's poor architecture presented some problems. They would need several versions of their website in order to work with payment providers in different countries and offer StudyMode's premium subscription in the local currency. Because their existing architecture was not built for this, their servers kept crashing. This inconsistent user experience led to a subsequent revenue loss. In order to scale StudyMode and have a successful international business, improvements would need to be made.

Result
RaiseTech completely reworked StudyMode's architecture so that they could serve multiple localized websites from one single codebase. We also built a new multi-currency processing layer for subscription payments. This allowed StudyMode to accept different currencies using various payment providers -- without affecting the website speed or stability. With these initial challenges resolved, we then focused on how we could better the user experience. Our development team increased search speed and improved the relevancy of results so users could find what they were looking for even faster. After launching these updates, we found an increase in conversions from free to premium subscription users. With their new code structure and improved user experience in place, StudyMode could better serve their existing markets and continue to expand. In just one year, annual revenue jumped from $10M to more than $25M.
