How it all started?

The company was established in 2011 in Tallinn, Estonia, the world’s most advanced digital society, where Nordic innovation is combined with Estonian creativeness, focus on growth, and a hunger for results.

Why we are doing it?

Our vision is to offer the best student application management platform for higher education institutions and change how millions of people around the globe apply.

So, on one hand we want to help universities to improve & automate their processes so that they could meet the expectations of the applicants (generation Z) and achieve their recruitment goals.
On the other hand, we want to make the process of applying easy and hassle free for millions of applicants and increase their accessibility to (higher) education throughout the world.
In big picture, our goal is to make education accessible globally for millions of applicants by simplifying the whole process.

The idea came back in the days when we saw how universities were struggling with their admission processes to offer a good service to their international applicants.

Much of that time was still on paper, and/or there wasn’t a good solution to support the whole process.

And as we had recently created something for our recruitment needs, we decided to improve it and offer it to others based on a SaaS model.
This is how it all began.
