The Business Needs

Identifying the PilotCity pain points.

The main challenge for the PilotCity team was to provide more accessible solutions to employers, teachers, and schools by:


  1. Enhancing the existing SaaS platform with various ADKs
  2. Embedding new programs
  3. Streamlining the deployment of various back-end activities
  4. Move the existing portal to the Microservice Architecture
  5. Improve the front-end and back-end architecture

About PilotCity: PilotCity is an edtech startup started in 2015 with a mission of enabling youths to shape the future of their communities and cities. Through innovative work-based learning systems, PilotCity believes that students can become engines for innovation, benefitting the places in which they live. PilotCity believes that we must grow our own culture of innovation, starting with the massive sums of students in our schools, in partnership with our teachers and employers.

Our Approach

How do we elevate the PilotCity SaaS platform with bug fixes, new features, and much more?

The first step involved a lot of research and brainstorming for a well-defined project approach. Our experts have identified the strengths, weaknesses, and objectives to define the project roadmap.

After a thorough audit, it was clear the existing structure was not scalable; hence, our initial approach was to make the existing platform stable by identifying and fixing the bugs instead of adding new features.


Keeping in mind the project’s goals, deliverables, and client’s needs, we’ve prepared a well-defined skill matrix [UX/UI experts, Vue JS & Node JS engineers, MongoDB engineers, QA engineers, and DevOps] and a detailed roadmap for the enhancements to be taken care of.


We follow a mutually agreed approach to handle two-way communication for the betterment of the project effectively.


Once the nuts and bolts were gathered, it was time for the AddWeb solution experts to start the project execution.

The lethal solution for the enhanced PilotCity SaaS Platform

It was time to start the action with the formulation of the right team and Agile development process for the SaaS Platform:


Embedded various Activity Development Kits (ADKs)


Employers can create various internship programs for interns, and students can enroll themselves with the help of different ADKs. Starting from Start, Scope, Community, Team, Train, Research, Tinker, Ideate, Pitch, Forum, Make, Autoapply, and Interview, various ADKs are enhanced and added to the PilotCity SaaS platform. Also, it empowered the users to lock/unlock the ADKs as and when needed.


Enhanced the PilotCity SaaS platform with innovative features.


To help clients seize the marketplace, we've worked on incorporating innovative features for students, teachers, and employers. As PilotCity follows the SaaS-based revenue model, we implemented token functionality where students can purchase a program with tokens.


Integration of payment gateway.


Our integration experts have implemented a stripe payment gateway that helps PilotCity users quickly checkout.


Ported the backend of PilotCity to the Microservice-based architecture.


Considering the complexities related to the migration of backend services, our team of Vue JS experts has ensured the migration is smoother and flawless.


A simplified testing process with Automation.


Testing is an iterative and continuous process that the PilotCity team wanted to streamline. And our selenium automation experts have helped automate the entire testing process for the features delivered. This has dramatically reduced the number of issues, time, and effort spent testing the end-to-end functionality.


Standardized the deployment process with CI/CD.


The client's other goal was to scale their business, implement a DevOps culture, and standardize the manual deployment processes. Our CI/CD experts implemented effective automated quality gates for the Continuous Integration portion of the CI-CD pipeline for PilotCity that help the client increase the user experience of a web app.
