EdTech firm Simply Skilled in Second engaged Solarsilk to plan, build, launch and maintain their robust online platform that helps new readers improve their literacy skills.

The platform has onboarded tens of thousands of students who read assigned digital flipbooks on the site. When listening to audio of the book being read, words highlight in sync with the audio. Among many other features, students can take interactive quizzes and record audio of themselves reading.

The site offers many types of paid subscriptions that are managed through the Stripe API, and utilizes email and Slack notifications to users and company staff.
